Floriane de Lassee0
“No matter whether it’s Paris or Istanbul. I do not photograph cities, but an imaginary city that inhabits each megalopolis. It is the product of the man’s excesses, his genius, his madness. The city exceeds the overflow. She is about to devour us.” -Floriane de Lassée, Paris, France

Shae Detar

Headland Of Dreams

by

September 22, 2015

Julien Mauve
"This project is based on a text called "Promontorium Somnii" written by Victor Hugo in 1863 and dealing with the continuum between real and dream. Hugo talks about our need to find something within ourselves than can help us sail through the remains of dreams and the will-of-the-wisps of illusion. He claims that "sleep is not a formal necessity for dreams". I tried to explore this nocturnal world with photographs, find a dream-state presence in the waking life and reveal this world that does not exist and yet which does." -Julien Mauve, Paris, France
