· From September 2016 to June 2017 I lived in Denmark. Hurled into a country I had never experienced before and surrounded by a language I did not understand I perceived it with my eyes more than anything else. Given without any context, these daily life scenes suggest a viewer’s effacement and their gaze’s absorption into banality. Taken very close or from afar, these pictures show a spectator’s attention sometimes absorbed into the close observation of a tiny detail, sometimes widely open to receive a large immersive image. By their format, the photographs convey the conditions in which they were first captured and invite the spectator to put themself in the same place the photograph did to look at them and therefore get into the same state of extreme attention.
