ささやき 0x608EBF51


The two exhibited works are part of a short photographic novella「ささやき」produced in Japan in May 2023.

ささやき (Sasayaki), in Japanese, means “MurmurS”, the title of the theme “Murmures” in French.

These photographs are, for those who know how to listen to silence, the murmur of nature.

While my photographic artwork tirelessly questions the murmurs of the universe, I did not think that the waves that I captured that night in Kanazawa, in dialogue with the moon, transmitted to me a vibration heralding the 6.5 magnitude earthquake which occurred a few hours later, on May 5, 2023 at 2:42 p.m. in Ishikawa Prefecture.

Everything is just a murmur of these waves which constantly pass through us and transmit to us in their infinite trajectory, the echo of the World, if indeed we can interpret it.

Photographs, Hahnemühle B&R Rag 310g paper, light oak wooden box and anti-reflective and anti-UV museum glass.
