Bertrand Fleuret : “Landmasses and Railways” (Photo Book)

::

“I am alone. Walking at random. Wandering, as if at random, among the unrecognizable fragments of what were palatial homes, public buildings, private residences, gaming houses and houses of prostitution, theatres, temples, and fountains. I am looking for something”. – Alain Robbe-Grillet

Bertrand Fleuret’s ‘Landmasses and Railways’ is a photographic travelogue to our interior, or perhaps an exploration outwards, to the encircling spheres above. Divided into five sections – I. The Melancholy of Departure, II. Approaching the City, III. Inside The Walls, IV. An Empty Building, and V. The Garden – the book takes us on a winding journey through a strange but familiar world. No time for questions. We quickly crash down into the ocean. Past the swarming jellyfish, we scramble for land, gasping for breath before safely making it ashore. From our initial descent, Fleuret takes us on a bewildering journey to the city, through its modern ruins and back to the primal undergrowth of the garden. Shooting in impressionistic black and white, Fleuret has the eye of a harried detective or alien cartographer. Remapping and exploring the world, Fleuret gathers fragments that cohere and then break apart. Is that a distant heavenly body or a glowing ball of trash? Drawing inspiration from such sources as the cosmic jazz musician Sun Ra, Chris Marker’s San Soleil, the novels of Alain Robbe-Grillet and Solaris, Fleuret’s book is a retro-futuristic travelogue as told by a bastard child of Provoke. – Extract : Adam Bell

Brancolina : ‘Urban Stories’ (Photography Book)

::

‘The city is a symbol, and there is symbolization of the city, but
it is in the image itself, apprehended through and by discourse,
that what the city represents for man is revealed and expressed.’

Raymond Ledrut (‘The Images of the City’)

“The urban environment is a genuine hub of activities and cultural expressions, ‘cityscapes’ conjure up multifarious visual associations, memories and experiences that together signal the distinctiveness of the city. For this series I photographed urban scenes with authentic details that triggered my thoughts and aesthetic feelings by geometric juxtaposition of urban elements and architectural semiotics.” [Ex-B]

Brancolina : Window Stories (photo book)

This book is a collection of visual stories written on windows. I was looking for interesting details, signs of human presence and reflections on window panes, those differences in repetition that add a touch of inconsistency to the strict order of a facade’s structural design and lend it a spatial dimension.

“Modern life is such that, confronted with the most mechanical, the most stereotypical repetitions, inside and outside ourselves, we endlessly extract from them little differences, variations and modifications. Conversely, secret, disguised and hidden repetitions, animated by the perpetual displacement of a difference, restore bare, mechanical and stereotypical repetitions, within and without us.” G.Deleuze

[Extract : Difference and repetition]
