L'INCONNUE

Qui est cette femme, se mêlant aux piétons pressés, passant des ruelles du Vieux-Lyon aux fameux couloirs du métro parisien, déambulant au gré des envies et de la vie quotidienne ?

Numéro 36 Du 19/02 au 04/03/13

voluptuousness

Among the photographers who love to capture movement in one image, Frédéric Delangle is a veritable virtuoso who has managed to catch the vibration of lovemaking and transform it visually into an elusive feeling of sensual delight. In the "Coït" series, with its peculiar lighting, the superimposition of movements covers the love scenes with a veil of discretion.

Numéro 35 Du 05/02 au 18/02/13

CONJUGATED RIGHTS

Observing people an immortalising everyday scenes with such humour is the signature of the painter Marc Vioulès. His style is somewhere between cartoon and caricature, his luminous paintings depict our society to perfection. And when the subject is couples, he misses nothing! The not-so-exaggerated exaggeration is hilarious! Extract.

Numéro 34 Du 22/01 au 04/02/2014

MATRIMANDIR

What’s left of the big hippy dreams shot through with Indian wisdom? In Auroville, the utopian village created in 1968 near Pondichery as a "place of universal community where men and women would learn to live in peace, in perfect harmony", is the Matrimandir, the building considered to be the soul of the place. Frédéric Delangle* magnified the curves and the red depth of the interior of this spherical light-filled monument that is still very difficult to access.

Numéro 33 Du 08/01 au 21/01/14

Numéro 30 Du 27/11 au 10/12/13

LITTLE DOLLS

Barbie. All the little girls dream about her and long to be like her. While this image of the female form is consistently controversial, it still continues to inspire a beauty cliché. And what if those little girls really started to look like her? Alain Delorme put it into practice with parental control.

Numéro 29 Du 13/11 au 27/11/13

FACADES

Nothing but a facade… Not very inspiring. It even engenders suspicion. Nevertheless, when it’s the only thing that remains in our streets, it is a soul that lives on or a story to be told.

Numéro 28 Du 30/10 au 12/11/13

FANCY FOOTWORK

Wearing moccasins, tap shoes, trainers or nothing at all, the artist Geoffrey Bouin and his partner Brandon Guyomard one day thought «Photograpieds».
