The artist

This 40 year old photographer is an architect by profession. There are signs of this in his work as it is first of all a reflection on contemporary cities and more specifically aboutthe proliferation of modern urban space. Laurent Dequick’s purpose is to accurately convey an impression of frenzy which results from a density of population and activity in urban areas: « Along the streets, the lights, the noise, the traffic, the swarms of pedestrians, the blend of smells, are so fascinating that no single shot can entirely capture it. Do choices have to be made? I don’t think so: I don’t want to… »To translate this urban life congestion into an image, the photographer does not shy away from the juxtaposition, superposition or inlaying of shots. With the same intensity he overlaps photographs representing architectural complexes, main traffic routes and people. He condenses the images like the city condenses the sum of its inhabitants’ lives. Dequick’s style is reminiscent of cubism in its execution close to abstraction andin his representation of permanent movement.  ... See more See less

I am an unconditional lover of Venice. It is a city rooted in the past; it has changed very little in three centuries, owing to its very structure.

About the artwork

Laurent Dequick once again moves away from the traditional representation that we have of landscapes around us in order to present a highly poetic vision. As an eye-witness of the contemporary city, he knows its slightest fluctuations and it is on his escapades around the world that he captures many of the monuments, settings, and sites that have been the undisputed witnesses of history and of the radiating influence of the countries he traverses. This image is taken from his 2017 series on the city of Beijing. Laurent Dequick captures one of the most emblematic sites of the Chinese capital, the antique sellers? street, Liulichang, spanning 800 metres and located southwest of Tiananmen Square. This street became famous in the Qing dynasty, when candidates for the imperial examination travelled there to find their supplies. It was a meeting place for researchers, painters, and calligraphers. Its name, however, dates from the Yuan dynasty and comes from the factory that varnished the tiles that were found in the Forbidden City during this period.
