13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

On track, launched by train at high speed, looking towards the horizon... Only available to us, a succession of long sequences where landscape consumed by the darkness of the night is sometimes taken in the mist, always diluted by speed. At the heart of these large blackboards, emerging from time to time almost unreal scenes, momentarily captured by the retina. Graphic prints and colourful feel and form offer the traveler rare traces of a life, a presence, which usually remains enigmatic, sometimes verging on abstraction.... evocation of a "somewhere else" place, immediate and timeless, near and far, real and yet intangible and ephemeral.
