Postcards from nowhere
The ongoing project “Postcards from nowhere” results from a feeling I had during a road-trip in Abitibi. Through thousands kilometers, I had the sensation that I was stagnating while I’m driving on these long straight roads. By entering more and more in these similar landscapes and villages, I began to lose little by little my landmarks. This overwhelming likeness forced me to track for every details to escape this mental confusion.
The captured pictures become a way to establish a link between these areas and develop by their own accumulation a new identity of a non place.
