Dive into the world of d’images presented by artists who broke all the rules and references known in photography to create their own reality. Discover artworks between photography and collage with Loïc Jouan, SandMulas and Claude Degoutte.

When reality and imagination merge


SandMulas is passionate about photography. Tickets pinned on a world map, vintage music concert posters, sound recording media...She collects, overlays and sticks her images where reality and imagination mix in a singular desire to find new interpretations of fascinating stories. The artist uses light, which she captures in her black box, on film or digital sensor.

"The eye should learn to listen before looking. I am a photojournalist and I tell your story in pictures."

Photographic diary


Press photos, album covers, reports... Loïc Jouan separates himself from all his equipment and, only with his smartphone, he dedicates his time to his photographic journal on Instagram. Fascinated by light, colour and graphics and inspired by the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher, German photographers known for their frontal photographs of industrial installations, he converts his Instagram into a work of art in itself. In parallel to his various professional activities, the artist illustrates in music production.



Why photography?

I was an institutional film director for 30 years, so I love the moving image, but photography has always been a simpler and more emotional way for me to capture everyday life.

Your inspiration, especially artistic?

The street and street art. Since 1977 I always walk around with a camera in my backpack and the spectacle of the street is limitless: you just have to stroll around.

What is unique about your photographs?

For the past 10 years I've been taking square photos: it's obviously ideal for instagram but also for creating mosaics of square images on specific themes, covering a hundred images at a single view...

The context for the creation of this series?

After the mosaics on art, cinema, comics, cartoons, music and literature, I would like to start a mosaic on "the history of the world" in 100 photos and another on "photography"!



How would you describe your work in a few words?

Unique and different. However, I don't categorise myself as a photographer, but as a visual artist. My favourite subject is the conceptual imagination with a touch of surrealism.

How did your passion for photography come about?

I have always loved drawing. I find that photography and drawing have a lot in common; they are the mediums that allow me to express my creativity. I got my interest in pop art from Andy Warhol's work. Many other artists have inspired and influenced my work: Salvador Dali, Erik Johansson, Noell Oszvald, Evelyn Bencicova and Maria Svarbova.

What emotion do you want to communicate through your photographs?

It depends on the concept, but I hope that my work can convey a positive energy and become a source of inspiration for the viewers.
