This book is published within the framework of the Prix Niépce to which The Eyes Publishing is associated since 2019. The publishing house offers to the winner the publication of an artist’s edition limited to 400 copies. Part of this publication is supported by Picto Foundation. In 2021, The Prix Niépce was awarded to Grégoire Eloy.
OMALO presents a series of photograms by Grégoire Eloy made during a residency in Georgia. The photographer questions time, memory and life in this recluse of the Caucasus, while continuing to propose his vision and to question the image itself.
Alternating photograms and their setting in situation, Grégoire Eloy shakes up our perception of what the image is: each shot leading to a photogram (action of the light of the flash on the photosensitive paper placed in the space) and to a view of the setting in situation (image captured by the camera).
Extending this feeling of the image of the inside and the outside, or more broadly of what the image is, the model of the book proposes a pathway playing with subtlety on these different surfaces of the photograph.
