Alexis Duclos – « In the City »

The Exhibition

Alexis Duclos' work is artistic in nature. Here, the report on the event is anecdotal compared to the composition of the image. An aesthetic carries the entire project together for the exhibition. Obviously, the composition plays on perspective, parallels and ruptures.

These images exhale a singular poetry. They speak of life, all of life, even its fragility when one thinks of relaxing by the pool or indulging in a frantic, unbalanced tango.

Guessing without seeing, seeing and feeling, feeling in order to know.

Through the photographer, the chain that passes from the gaze to the emotion is an initiatory journey. We rediscover a part of ourselves, a buried experience.

The city of Alexis Duclos carries our memory. His city transforms it into an object of art.
