“Angkor is sublimely poetic, overgrown by the forces of nature and evoking a long-lost human civilization… why not Dubai, Shanghai, New York, Paris subsequent?… What is going to turn into of those city landscapes, these megacities, this civilization of ours, now probably on the peak of its energy, however at some point vowed to vanish, as did the Mayans or the Khmers?
My imaginative and prescient is the exact opposite of an apocalyptic world. I see it energetic, a sort of rediscovered Backyard of Eden, overflowing with shapes and colours.
I think about the architectural logic of proper angles and wide-open areas changed by lush nature, rising in probably the most sudden methods. A historical past of the city revisited, now lush and greened, ecological and Angkor-like.
Every of my pictures presents an iconic constructing, historical or trendy, in cities that I’ve photographed. I then rework the picture like I might a portray, digitally, I play with coloration, shadows, textures, focus, views, I add bushes, animals, crops, industrial wrecks… I add all types of components photographed throughout earlier travels, that come to feed the universe I discover.”
