Nicolas Auvray “Lisa + Attractions Nocturnes”
Simply a lonely building and a bench. A woman lingers on the bench, looking across the street at a man. This work, entitled “Lisa,” is the result of a fortuitous encounter one night between this woman and the photographer. Artist Nicolas Auvray searches and captures the extraordinary atmosphere of dreamlike realities. As a sensuous exploration of day and night, he uses both surrounding light and the “set” of reality to create a theatrical presence with a strong narrative. To Auvray, night is not simply a time of day, but a radically strange space encompassing the perception of a changed reality. To complement this nocturnal experience, a selection of portfolio “Attractions Nocturnes” is also presented.
