The silence of the world
Photography, in its immobility of the world, establishes a point of rupture with the hubbub of the society. By its essence, it fixes time and generates silence.
In these half-urban, half-natural landscapes, the silence dominates and they propose an interruption, a suspension of the gaze. They bring us into the “dreamy space” that characterizes the paintings of Edward Hopper. Here, the sound of lapping waves has disappeared, the wind has fallen silent, we can barely hear the click of a heel on the asphalt, the crunch of sand, a word exchanged in the distance. All the rest is silence.
