For today’s Cameo we’re having 40 year-old French photographer Julien Coquentin. In his series Saisons Noires [tr. Black Seasons], Julien reconnects with the places of his childhood creating a set of images that blurs the line between reality and fiction.
Ciao Julien, how are you?
I’m fine, thanks for asking.
What is photography for you?
A form of writing, a subjective way of sharing my view of the world, a nice escape from our stressful times, a wonderful way to spend my days.
What is Saisons Noires about?
Saisons Noires is a photographic series I’ve worked on for almost three years, which is also available as a photobook. It’s a project about memories and a personal reflection on the passing of time; in particular, it’s a tribute to my grandmother that I’ve created in a geographically restriced area around where I’m based.
Where can you be found online?
