It seems to be the record of a trip. You left the countryside and entered a city. Lost in the layers of construction and decay, you eventually found yourself in an overgrown garden. You remember Sebastian’s jungle, the chaos of creation. You remember Solaris and the island in Le Voyeur. It’s all very clear, like photographs slipped under your door in a manilla envelope. Were you there? What happened? As William Gedney wrote in his notebook, “All facts lead eventually to mysteries.”
BERTRAND FLEURET was born in Versailles, France, 1969. He studied photography and graphic-design at École des Beaux-Arts de Versailles and London College of Printing. His first book, The Risk of an Early Spring was published by Artimo in 2004. Fleuret lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
