Sydney Bondi Beach II

About this photograph

Taking photographs of areas where there is life involves depicting, not the least by evocation, the time passing (?). My study is the feeling, the emotion which results from the juxtaposition of multiple moments.? In general photography fixes a given moment forever, this artist adds these moments up by superimposing the shots. The offset accumulation creates a vibration and recreates chronophotography. Slow motion and dispersed movements give a new and frenzied vision of urban activities.

The Artist
Laurent Dequick

This 40 year old photographer is an architect by profession. There are signs of this in his work as it is first of all a reflection on contemporary cities and more specifically aboutthe proliferation of modern urban space. Laurent Dequick’s purpose is to accurately convey an impression of frenzy which results from a density of population and activity in urban areas: « Along the streets, the lights, the noise, the traffic, the swarms of pedestrians, the blend of smells, are so fascinating that no single shot can entirely capture it. Do choices have to be made? I don’t think so: I don’t want to… »To translate this urban life congestion into an image, the photographer does not shy away from the juxtaposition, superposition or inlaying of shots. With the same intensity he overlaps photographs representing architectural complexes, main traffic routes and people. He condenses the images like the city condenses the sum of its inhabitants’ lives. Dequick’s style is reminiscent of cubism in its execution close to abstraction andin his representation of permanent movement.
