2020. The pandemic imposes several confinements on us. Some test our patience. With every wave of hope comes its share of bad news. Morale is plummeting for many. Our emotions are bubbling inside, more or less below the surface.
January 2021. I want to portray this society in turmoil, before the next big change. This intuition becomes revelation. Between January and March, 521 howlers, from different regions of France, parade through my studio. They are women, men, children, couples, families, friends. They are a group whose members do not yet know each other.
Beyond the texts and words accompanying these strong images, it is not only the stories of 521 people that you come to observe here. These are all mirrors that this league of howlers holds out to you. Some will spin. Others will be a reflection of your lives, of what you have felt, experienced, and endured during these long months of confinement and deprivation of freedom.
Some memories are too hard. But they are now part of our collective memory.

…artist's proofs are printed in sizes that may vary.
Certificate of authenticity
Each print is sold with a certificate of authenticity, signed manually. The certificate of authenticity is an added value to your print. It guarantees the uniqueness of the limited edition photo and protects against the risk of falsification.
The objective is to guarantee the original and rare character of a work , which constitutes its value.
The work is printed on FineArt Canson Rag Photographique 310gr paper (or equivalent).
We use pigment inks, containing molecules of organic origin, encapsulated in a synthetic resin then placed in suspension in a liquid. The molecules of these pigments are much larger than those of dyes and therefore more resistant to light, humidity and gases (ozone among others). They meet the primary need for the preservation of prints.
Ready to hang (optional)
The work is laminated on a 3mm Aluminum plate (the most upscale), and mounted in an American box, for a striking result; it is then directly ready to be hung on the wall. If you want a different finish (no American body, no aluminum plate, that's also possible).
It is possible to pick up your unique print at the Studio, or to receive it directly at your home. Costs will be calculated automatically based on total weight and destination.
