Presentation by VOID: 

Half Light is made out of open-hearted meetings between Loïc and the people he relates to in his real life. There's no artist pretension. Nor any voyeuristic need of representing people from out of their universe. His photograph is genuine, direct, simple. No gimmicks.

The way Seguin unveils people from Belleville and Place des Fêtes is unique. It could only have been done by an insider. This is its strength: simplicity and straightforwardness. The unpretentious portraits trigger our curiosity – Who are those people? Where do they come from? How did they let the photographer come that close? That intimate?

The obsession. The rigorous and constant practice. The stable high quality of his images, despite the elevated quantity. Those are the credentials that Seguin presents on his first book, to be published by VOID.

« These photographs were taken in Paris during a period of mourning. I felt I had to look at people facing me. Without any social mask. »

Atkins, Nicéphore

Who is this photographer? A short explanation. The name of this virtual photographer has been generated - wink-wink - from the first name of the author of the oldest photograph to have reached our times, Nicéphore Niépce, and the last name of the creator of the first book to ever use photography, Anna Atkins (book "British Algae"). The process of adding books to our website can be time demanding as we need to create a page for each photographer and a page for each publisher (in both French and English) before creating the new book, and connecting it to its author and publisher. Consequently, it can happen, in super busy times, that we will create a new book and use "Nicéphore Atkins" as the photographer attached to this book. Of course, this is not out of lack of respect for the artists, and we ask for your forgiveness, for THEIR forgiveness, that we are sometimes taking this easy route. We will limit the use of this pseudonym as much as possible, and we will try to create the missing pages as quickly as possible, in order to re-attribute the books to their righteous creators. Thank you for your understanding. © Portrait of artist Stromae by Benjamin Brolet during the shooting of a video for the album "Racine carrée".
