“Photography, like any other artistic processes, possesses a duality in its own practical function on top of its subjective aspect in relation to the individual behind the lens.
From visually experimenting with how to present a final photography work to keeping personal notes about photo shoot ideas and documenting myself regarding optical processes involved in photography, I realized that a redundant duality pattern occurred within all my work development’ stages.
I, therefore, selected from all these different stages (image picking, primary research, secondary research and final outcome), methods that would enhance, strengthen the aspect of duality within my work and also within the very core of photography itself (e.g. light is fundamental in creating an image onto film for analogue, but also light can be used in different ways regarding the same image created onto the film thanks to the same light). I developed a personal method adapted to my own way of processing my surroundings with a purposeful idea; duality.
This is how the ‘DIPTYCH’ photographic series emerged. Being a work in progress, I keep on adding paired photographs which I found to illustrate duality applied to a person, a moment, a texture…. Duality is present through my way of picking up images within the abundance of constant information (images), followed by the duality of the information picked up and the final presentation of the work itself”. – Léa Brinon
Léa Brinon’s (France, 1992) work focuses on the individual, and for her photography is a direct way to bond with people. Whilst hid behind her camera, she can put herself aside in order to interact with perfect strangers, getting to know about their lives and their experiences. Inspired by humanistic photography, she is interested in exploring how the application of photographic processes impacts the viewer. The relationship between the photographer and the photographed, and the transformation involved in the process of capturing a moment and imprinting a precise memory on film and paper are also major topics in her photographic work.
