The road from the eye to the heart is easy to follow. I am taking it with my eyes closed. β€” Β© Christophe Agou
The road from the eye to the heart is easy to follow. I am taking it with my eyes closed.
When I use the camera, I often feel likeI know part of the people or places I come in contact with.
Somehow there is a certain honesty underground, a certain truth.
With every glance I take in the 'negative-positive' of existence and the inevitability of impermanence to its glowing limits. Alone and haunted, I trust my inner eye, the heart. Everything, absolutely everything, becomes visible. Appearances, disappearances, nothing seems of secondary importance to me.
Whether it is photography, assemblage art or filmmaking, my work is to see beneath the surface.
