Un temps pour chaque chose | 2002-2003

This body of work draws inspiration from snapshot photography, but was shot with a large format camera. Instead of capturing life as it’s being lived, I staged scenes using actors and artificial light. These constructed scenes are unexpected happenings that I had either been witness to or experienced myself.

In this context, I have recreated moments where someone’s intimacy is open to the public realm. I am inviting the viewer to consider how strangers look at us in moments of lust, anger, and despair. As observers, we carry on as if we have seen nothing: we turn a blind eye and pretend not to notice. As the participants we are oblivious to the outside world: ignoring the presence of strangers, and consumed by the experience of our own reality.
