A few years ago, i think 6 or 7 or 8 years now, Claire Artemyz contacted me to work on a specific project. She is a photographer and journalist exploring the realms of the skin in its very closed details. After some talks together, she traveled and came to me for taking videos and photos during a few tattoo sessions. Then the results are some amazing pictures of ink, blood, skin that turns to abstract landscapes. Those pictures featured in many exhibitions all around the world... You can discover her uncredible work here.
When i was in Copenhagen, Denmark, i could saw her new explorations on through a new exhibiton.
Here are some of the shots she did during my working process.
It was lost on a cd under hundred other cds...more to come!
When i was working on my first book: "GENERATIO AEQUIVOCA"; it was hard as hell to reduce the numbers of pages to maintain this publication with "only"167 pages!!! At the end, i decided to focus on more drawings rather than pictures of my trips as the main idea of this book was to show more the drawing side of my life than my hobby as a photographer... In any case, until the deadline, i prepared a file with more pictures in case of something; but no, when we ended up the pages for being printed, there was no space anymore. done.
And like a miracle i found this file, hidden in a hard drive... Here they are, not in a special order, but the stock is now online.
Those pictures were taken in France: around my house, in the mountains, in the south of France too, in New Zealand, in Canada and in England...
i hope you'll enjoy as i did while i was discovering those amazing places during my trips...
