Franck Bohbot Studio

LONG ISLAND CITY QUEENS

About this photograph

This photograph comes from the "Light On" series produced between 2013 and 2014 in New York. The artist captured the lights and colours that illuminate the nocturnal cityscape of the city that never sleeps, thanks to the lighting from the myriad storefronts of delis and restaurants. While they continue with their activities, they gradually become devoid of people as the night goes on, thus giving way to a "second life", a calmer and more laidback atmosphere. Like the photographs of Robert Frank, particularly those of Detroit and New York, Franck Bohbot succeeds in revealing another side to America. His various views, each taken with a long exposure time, give a highly contrasted and dynamic effect to the compositions, which highlight the various kinds of architecture he encounters. They also confer a deliberately cinematographic character to his shots, bearing witness to the photographer's fascination for architecture and its importance in films. He readily cites Nan Goldin, calling her photographs the "remains of non-existent films".

The artist
Franck Bohbot Studio

Born in the suburb of Paris, Franck Bohbot set down his suitcases in 2013 in the borough of Brooklyn in New York. Since 2008, he has been recognised for his photographs in colour of urban scenes and public spaces. Fascinated by cinematic iconography, he focuses his creation around the relationship between individuals and architecture. Each series contains this same photographic intention: the enigmatic atmosphere, documentary approach and timeless character of each of them evoke a cosy, dreamlike, and almost unfathomable space, as though taken straight from a dream. Franck Bohbot thus immortalises street scenes, swimming pools, libraries, basketball courts, museums, cinemas, and fairgrounds but also artists, athletes or artisans. His works have been hailed by numerous critics and published in New York Times Magazine, The Financial Times, National Geographic, Corriere Della Serra, Le Nouvel Observateur, or Les Inrockuptibles. He received the Prix International de Photographie in 2013 and the Prix Archifoto 2014.
