New product

Martin Bogren, photographe suédois déjà connu entre autres pour la série pour Lowlands, nous raconte ici une histoire que nous connaissons tous : celle des ados qui traînent ensemble le soir et s'amusent comme ils peuvent.

Tractor Boys, c'est un groupe de jeunes qui traînent avec leurs bagnoles trafiquées sur des parkings ou des routes désertes pendant des soirées de "déconne" probablement alcoolisées et enfumées. Les potes, les filles, faire chauffer la gomme, faire mieux que le copain, s'éclater, s'embrasser, surtout ne pas s'ennuyer.

Dans des images floues, parfois jusqu'à l'illisible, avec des cadrages bancals, des noirs très poussés et un grain de pelliculle omniprésent, l'artiste nous livre sa propre vision de cette période difficile où l'on s'affirme et se construit.

Les voitures et la fumée des pneus et des moteurs dans des zones industrielles totalement anonymes, sont confrontés à des portraits frontaux de visages candides, pour constituer un ensemble qui nous parle forcément. Tout d'abord graphiquement car les images sont superbes (on pense par exemple à Anders Petersen ou Chris Killip), mais également émotionnellement car on sent Martin Bogren très proche de l'ambiance, des visages et des sentiments...

From the Editor :

"Youngsters meet up on the village outskirts, racing their tractorcars, burning tyremarks into the warm summer asphalt. The smell of rubber, oil and souped-up engines fills the air when the engines speed. The cars form into a circle as the boys take turns in the middle. It is a game – showing their skills – showing off to the girls. Strength is measured and proved – as if in a strange ritual mating dance."
