" These images were produced under a public commission in connection with the « Euromed » project in Marseilles.

This large operation aims notably at « reconfiguring » some neighborhoods in the central part of the city.  The series is made essentially of digitally edited pieces where young people from these neighborhoods, and those who will be the future users of these areas (white-collar workers in working outfit), appear in deserted urban spaces.

In the photobook, phrases are initially provided as anonymous before being identified as quotes from the inhabitants, civil workers or politicians. Some are surprising by the social violence, often combined with racism, that they illustrate.

Inspired, as indicated by its title, by the initial situationism, Psychogéographie stands, through these multiple collages, in the tradition of the political photomontage. "
