About the artwork

While Bernd and Hilla Becher, the initiators of German objective photography, dedicate their work to the frontal photography of industrial installations, French photographer Franck Bohbot experiments with an equally exacting protocol that enables him to draw up an inventory of cultural sites. The systematic frontal and centred views of his subjects offer a documentary dimension based on typologies. It is precisely this systematism and the notion of the overview that confers an artistic and majestic dimension to the photographer's works. Belonging to the "House of Books" series that the photographer began in 2011, this image represents the oval room of the Richelieu site of the Biblioth?que Nationale de France, inaugurated in 1936. Franck Bohbot thus distances himself from cold architectural photography, offering us instead these wonderful representations of sites of memory, knowledge, and education. On the borders between the monumental and the intimate, books have replaced humans as the main protagonists of his supernatural images, resembling spacecraft.
