About the artwork

For these new works, the artist is presenting photographs taken in Paris, Versailles and Barcelona. It as though there were a spatial dimension to these images of architecture. The work of Franck Bohbot is characterised by both objectivity and hyperrealism: he reveals all the power of the very essence of these sites. The artist plunges the spectator into contemplation of the architecture. The vision that the artist renders is that of his eye hidden behind the lens, focusing purely on the site, in a world devoid of any human presence. In the manner of Becher, whether it be through his typology or his documentary style, with these new works the artist once again demonstrates the rich diversity of his photographs. The choice of locations is never left to chance and includes theatres, train stations or libraries. He appropriates sites that symbolise travel and culture, in colours inherent to the artist's style, which gives his photographs both a cinematographic and documentary feel. Mystery and paradox emanates from these powerful and beautiful images, no doubt owing to the 'absence of presence', the framing and lighting that the artist has chosen to immortalise each site.

The artist

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: their enigmatic atmosphere, documentary approach, and timeless character 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, movie theatres, and fairgrounds, but also artists, athletes, or artisans. His works have been published in the prestigious New York Times Magazine, The Financial Times, National Geographic, Corriere Della Serra, Le Nouvel Observateur, and Les Inrockuptibles. He received the Prix International de Photographie in 2013 and the Prix Archifoto 2014.  ... See more See less

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.

CLAUDE DEGOUTTE

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
