Portraits in Topoi, 2010

Project Description

On going project since 2010.

The Greek word Topoi, means Lieux, Places, Spaces, Spots. A man measuring a wooden wall, a woman on a hill cutting with an axe,…etc. Some times human presence is almost invisible, hidden among the spatial elements. The idea is to have all essential elements or data condensed. This frame obliges the photographer both laconic and essential in what he embodies within his frame. In addition the photographer divides his frame into multiple geometries, where each one of them contains an autonomous frame full of information. The result is hybrid photography, not quite landscape, not quite portrait.  The particularity here is that someone is always doing something in an interior, urban or natural space.

Thanks to all models who are friends and family.
