Présence Obscure

Shadowy Presence shines a light on the relationship that the individual forges with his urban surroundings. This series focuses on urban surroundings at night. There are places or situations, as the darkness of night gives way to the paleness of the wee hours, when despite its absence, a human presence seems to remain faintly perceptible beyond objects. This ‘shadowy’ presence, like the fragile persistence of a recent life, gives things another dimension. As if they had captured the stamp of human presence. One cannot go without the other. One has become the other.
