DYSNOMIA (*signed*)

@ Dupeyron, Alexandre



Presentation by Sun/Sun:

" A photographic journey to the limits of our perceptions, DYSNOMIA paints a world where the infinitely small is immensity, where forests are made of the same material as the stars and where fire dances with the shadows of men. Alexandre Dupeyron probes the secret substance of things, constantly moving and elusive, in order to lead us beyond what they seem to be.

DYSNOMIA, between music score and film editing

The book is thought in a cinematic and musical way. Each picture is a note of an analog score between photography and sound. Taking up the cinematographic processes, each image can give way to a loop of pictures, forming a rhythm where interstitial images appear.

The images all have the same treatment and take up the idea of the 35mm film format. DYSNOMIA thus reveals several facets, where content and form converse.

Through its materiality, the Japanese binding allows the front and back pages to be linked in a continuity that recalls that of the film.

The sound usually encoded at the bottom of the film also appears on the back of the images, the words become sound waves. "

Dupeyron, Alexandre

Alexandre Dupeyron is a French-German photographer based in Bordeaux. After a photojournalism career reporting on the genocide in Darfur and then being a correspondent for the international press in North Africa, Alexandre has worked freelance in Singapore and then in India. His personal work, in black and white, is based on movement. Among other themes, in long term series "Runners of the Future" (2010-2019) draws a unified fictional space in a dystopian metaphor of the generic city of tomorrow. In 2022, he publishes his first photobook "Dysnomia" with Sun/Sun in which he delves into themes very often present across his personal series : the city, the mineral element, and pareidolia. This book has been conceived together with a musical piece composed by double-bass player Thomas Julienne and showcased during live events bringing together the music played by a quintet and the images mixed by Dupeyron and projected on screen. © Portrait taken from the artist's website .
