"Soft Touch re-works images pulled from various magazines and re-formatted into a sticker album where what remains becomes a comment on the use of empathy within photography and its economy of mass distribution.
Considering the image consumer and image collection practices, the book highlights a cultural interest in the horror that photography can apply in its negated subjects: biometrics, pixelation, obfuscation and censor bars.
Giving access to an already collected and filled album, Soft Touch becomes a meta-experience of collecting what another once collected and as a consequence, a contemporary photographic practice of accumulation."
This book was shortlisted for the "Author Book Award" at the "Rencontres d'Arles 2016" festival.
