About the artwork

rank Bohbot travelled to San Francisco to photograph the famous Castro Theatre. It was built in 1922 by Timothy L. Pflueger, an architect renowned for his many constructions in San Francisco Bay. Entirely decorated in a baroque Spanish colonial style, it has been a listed historical monument of the city since 1976. The photographer showcases the luxurious design of its interior by installing his lens at the highest point of the auditorium, opposite the stage. Its imposing ceiling, decorated with concave and convex spirals, dominates the space, featuring frescoes of Ancient Greek and Roman inspiration. The composition is arranged according to a central perspective that directs the spectator?s gaze towards the front of the stage where the famous ?Mighty Wurlitzer? is located, an organ that is becoming rare nowadays, capable of imitating a full orchestra, which served to accompany the first silent movies.

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
