Distinct perception

Shot from April 1996 to April 2003

« The work by photographer Yves Gellie on the Near East offers a new photographic approach of a war-ravaged region. Inscribed in an aesthetic of the trace, his images, which appear as simple and hardly forthcoming, maintain a form of visual euphemism. Yves Gellie positions himself both very close and very far from things, in no connivance with the objects of the photography. In fact, he explores a double dimension of photography - the real dimension and the narrative and fictional dimension - which allows the viewer to distance himself from the image and to revisit it by means of his own memory. »
