Redscape

2015 - ongoing

A work in progress, Redscape reflects the recurring desire of man to shape and control their environment. REDSCAPE is also a reflexion on the photographic material itself.

Photographs of the REDSCAPE series lead us astray. Are we about to visit a nature reserve, a botanical garden, the surroundings of a seaside resort or a zoo ? Do we find ourselves in front of natural landscapes or scenes mastered or (re-)designed by man ?

Our preference is often limited to a dominated and consumable nature. The ambiguity contained in these images raises questions about our stubborn and recurring desire to control. A relentless quest for perfection, where spontaneity is no longer fashionable.

Thus, REDSCAPE's landscapes try to escape the frame. The abandonment of control (over the photographic material) is at the heart of the approach.

This is a work in progress, started in 2015.
