About the artwork

While Bernd and Hilla Becher, the initiators of New Objectivity, dedicate their work to photographing industrial installations, French photographer 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 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 his works. The photographer's external gaze lends a monumental dimension to these venues, which are transformed into singular and captivating spaces, both sociohistorically and aesthetically. This image was created in the Salle Labrouste of the Bibliothèque de L'Institut National d'Histoire de l'Art (INHA) in Paris. Designed by Henri Labrouste in 1860, this room was restored in 2016 to recover its elegance, light, and the atmosphere of studious comfort originally devised by its architect.
