A Stranger:Library, anse 8 by BenoitPaille A Stranger:Library, anse 8 by BenoitPaille
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.
