FIFTY BODY I & II, My body as 50 years old.
I could tell you about my career, where I come from, who I am, a former dancer who wishes, in this series of 100 photos "FIFTY BODY I & II, My body is 50", pay tribute to the body that l has been worn for 50 years.
I could explain the basics of my work, the reasons for this particular photographic exercise that is the self-portrait and the constraint of a single source of light, in order to sublimate, to make vulnerable, this body that is wrong , to show it to you as it is, without retouching, but all this would be useless.
I could tell you about the pictorial, photographic, sculptural, Antique influences, quoting the names of Rodin, Myron, Delacroix, Ingres, Picasso, Bacon, Mappelthorpe, Avedon, Newton and so many others.
I could also tell you that I wanted to add in FIFTY BODY II, My body at 50 years a more poetic and abstract vision by including by the photomontage elements such as the sky, the roots or the water and the adding clay to the skin. You also say that a photo exists only when it is printed and hanging on the wall, that it speaks to you as much as a canvas and that in spite of what it tells us it remains decorative.
I could tell you all this and you could read it. But I prefer that you do not read anything, try to forget, leave on these bodies your eyes to ask, let yourself be carried away on what he tells you and you will see everything that can be read there ...
I never read, I just look at the pictures. Andy Warhol.
