"Through this intimist series, Cédric Delsaux continues his exploration of reality in a fictional state. Strongly influenced by the Jean-Claude Romand case (a news story popularised by Emmanuel Carrère’s novel L’Adversaire, adapted to film by Nicole Garcia), he travelled widely in the region of Gex on the Swiss border for three years. In the solitude of his car, for many hours at a time, Cédric Delsaux strived to capture what this man may have been feeling; trapped in the lie he had been living for 18 years.
We are struck by this unsettling series of standalone pictures, as though by a new literary form.
During this experience, Cédric Delsaux found himself confronted by everything that he had projected onto this case and strived to faithfully convey how it had deformed his perception of the area, and in this way show our “filtered” take on reality. Through a perfect mastery of framing and lighting, the beauty of these images implicitly reveals the vision of a wayward society."

He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these ordinary or...
