ImageSingulières Sète#15

The photography festival Images Singulières invited me to create work during a short residency in the coastal town of Sète in the South of France. I wandered through the streets in the evenings and into the night but could not bring myself to take pictures. As a solution for the increasing uncomfortable feeling of seeing the people I photograph as objects, I started to use them as actors. Although I portray them in their true environments, I project my own story onto the scenes, fictionalizing the realities of my subjects in a way that blurred the lines between their world and mine. In Sète#15, I present a nocturnal vision of the city with a filmic dream-like atmosphere. The photographs convey the muted pulsations of a sleeping city.
