About the artwork

While Bernd and Hilla Becher, the initiators of 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 cultural venues he finds on his travels. 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. Part of his series House of Books, which the photographer began in 2011 and completed in 2017, this image represents the Vallicelliana Library. It was built in the 17th century on the second floor of Borromini's Oratory of Saint Phillip Neri on the Piazza della Chiesa Nuova in Rome. Through this series on sites of remembrance, knowledge, and education, Franck Bohbot brings together a visual collection of these literary portals. Each space was selected for its size, thus reflecting the incredibly complex beauty contained on its shelves.

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.
