About the artwork

While Bernd and Hilla Becher, the initiators of the New Objectivity, dedicate their work to photographing industrial installations, Franck Bohbot experiments with an equally exacting protocol that enables him to draw up an inventory of the landscapes he travels through. The systematic frontal and centred view 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 his works. With this image taken in 2013 on Coney Island, Franck Bohbot explores the timeless relationship between the playground and the unique environment in which they are situated. Attaining the height of its popularity in the early 20th century, and starting its decline after World War II, this former island that is now a peninsula has been revitalised with the opening of a number of amusement parks including the "new Luna Park" inaugurated in 2010. Subtle image saturations of the rides evoke a nostalgic atmosphere that brings to mind the firmly rooted tradition of leisure activities in American culture. One of Franck Bohbot's strengths is his undeniable ability to travel through time visually.

The thematics of the artwork

Architecture is everywhere, in every city, from megalopolises to the tiniest of villages, I photograph architecture because I am passionate about the act of documenting buildings, interiors, and the soul of a neighbourhood with my eyes.
