About the artwork

After years spent travelling across the globe, Corentin Sauvage is now travelling through time. He digitally reworks photographic glass plates that have been previously digitised and are rights-free. The possibilities are therefore endless. He starts by giving them colour, then alters the narrative. Popular brands, street art, advertising… Everything around him is capable of becoming the focal point of his creations. Finally, he sometimes add fish, symbols of the city swarming that surrounds his subjects.

Anecdote

"We owe this portrait to the French photographer Felix Bonfils. He left an impressive collection of photographs of the Middle East when he died in 1885. The date is not specified, but you can already imagine the life of this man with a tough expression and an honourable posture. I like to think that this colouring would have made him smile.”
