“Désordres” is a poetic vision of a modern city. It’s a focus on a delimited space, like a sample extracted from a large city. When observing the city we notice cars and pedestrians composing a ballet under the rain, moving in different directions around the urban node. The people appear to move unconcerned, minding their own business, perhaps even feeling free. The cars seem to be displacing equally freely and in a determined way. But the photographs are plunged in a dark atmosphere of cold and metallic colours. The composition gives the impression that elements are held in order by an invisible hand. That makes this world look orderly, neat and submissive like under an oppressive power. This juxtaposition between freedom and control could be a projection of our western societies in these crisis times. But one should not forget that order imposed under duress produces inevitably an equivalent disorder.
