An attempt to explain the reason for the dimensions of a photographic image, of a print (the book is illustrated with works from the collection of the FRACs of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region laid out in their respective scale ratios).
Photography and cinematography are methods of expression inherited from the Industrial Revolution which never entail the audience’s consideration of the original, but rather draw its attention solely to copies, print-outs and duplicates. Un être, un acte, un objet, un lieu (A Being, An Act, An Object, A Location) attempts to explain the how and why of the scale and dimensions of a photograph or a print-out to children and curious ones alike. This publication is illustrated by works from the FRAC collection (Nouvelle-Aquitaine), organized together across the pages in relation to their true comparative sizes in real life.
