Lives and works in Nice

Since the creation of our collective, some twenty years ago, we have been using the document image to question what covers up appearances. After several years essentially devoted to the urban space in the form of distinct series, each one the object of a new experiment, we are currently involved in works (Metroplex, Les arpenteurs...) in which the organization of the images between them becomes fundamental and challenges the interdependence between fiction and reality. Our idea is to develop a form of narrative which sidesteps narrative continuity and describes territories which we explore, as close as possible to our own experience.
