Marche vers la mer

Tentative d’épuisement d’une marche vers la mer [An Attempt to Exhaust a Walk to the Sea] (2013), 469 inkjet prints on newspaper stock, 10x15cm

These series take their title from Georges Pérec’s novel « Tentative d’épuisement d’un lieu parisien » [ An Attempt to Exhaust a Parisian Space]. They can be stills from a movie or systematic shots of a scene or an action until completion. Here I try to limit the importance of choice, be it when the picture is taken or during editing. I try to document a scene until the end, until the gaze is exhausted.
