A Stranger, Silent Library, Anse 8 years old


CHERCHE BONNE TRADUCTION ANGLAISE POUR LE TEXTE (démarche et description)

J'entre dans la bibliothèque de Concordia, tout est silencieux, surtout que nous somme samedi. Je voie la petite fille, inhabituel dans une bibliothèque d'université, je me dis que cela ferai un bon sujet. Ok, je dois brisé ce calme et cette anonymat, je dois allé demandé a son père, je dois le dérangé, le sortir de ses livres. Je le fais le père pas trop sur, me dis de pas m'éloigner.

Démarche:
Interroger le monde hypermoderne dans lequel on vis et tenté de brisé l'hyperindividualisme et l’anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des Non-lieux (métro, centre commercial, rue passante à l’heure de point) et en demandant à des étranger de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelque instant le fonctionnement habituelle de ce monde hypermoderne. Je rend ces Non-lieux existants en y créant un événement dont l’étranger vas se souvenir. Mes modèles je les choisis non pas pour leurs beautés esthétiques, mais pour leurs beautés émotionnelles du moment.

I come into the library of Concordia, everything is silent, especially as it is Sunday. I see a little girl, unusual in the library of university. I think it shall be a good subject. Ok, I have to break this calm, this anonymity. I have to ask her father, I have to disturb him, to take him out of her books. I do it; the father is not so sure about it and asks me to not move too far.


Approach to photography:
Questioning the hypermodern world in which we are living and trying to break this hyper-individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into “Non-lieux” (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours …;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this hyper-modern world works for a few instants. I make real these “non-lieux” by creating an event that the stranger will remember. I choose my models because of the emotional beauty of the instant and not because of their esthetic beauties.

J'avoue que vu notre quotidien, c'est dur pour un père de laisser un inconnue prendre sa fille en photo. Surtout vu les derniers évènements en date, qui pousse encore plus les gens dans l'individualisme et l'anonymat.
C'est vraiment du bon boulot.

Excellent portrait, as always! Continually impressed with your work. I'm curious... What do you typically say or what direction do you give to them when you're about to take these photos to get these authentic serious expressions?

The composition and perspective effect are superb.
There is real serendipity here.
She's beautiful and haunting at the same time. The pic reminds me of the library scene from the movie "Ghost Busters" (1984), but with a much cuter ghost.

À partir de Google Translate (avec modification):
La composition et l'effet de perspective sont superbes.
Il ya Serendipity réel ici.
Elle est belle et envoûtante à la fois. Le pic me rappelle de la scène de la bibliothèque du film "Ghost Busters" (1984), mais avec un fantôme beaucoup plus mignon.

lovely use of the black frame! also the expressive look on her face is priceless!

If you don't mind, I wanted to ask what are the first words you ask or what is your opening line? Cause your style is amazing, and you have been able to take pictures of strangers and it seems that they really like it?
What are the odds that you get a stranger to have their photo taken? :)

Estoy completamente de acuerdo en tu aproximación de la fotografía. Actualmente creo que han desvirtuado la esencia de lo que es una buena fotografía fijándose sólo en pequeñeses que al fin y al cabo no representan nada, por eso me gusta tú estilo porque no caes en las tonterías de todos. Ver tus fotos me convence más de que es eso lo que quiero estudiar y hacer =D Y bueno...basta de alabanzas jajajaja

Bonjour!

Je regarde vos portraits depuis quelques mois déjà et je tenais à vous dire que je les trouve superbes. Parlants, émotifs. Je les adore, sincèrement.
Si je maniais mieux la photographie, ce serait ce genre de prise que j'essaierais d'effectuer. Mais bon... je vais me contenter de peindre.
:P

Bonne journée!
