Interview with Eve Duhamel & Julien Vallée, creators of the great studio, Vallée Duhamel
A! is a photographic project by Tomasz Laptaszynski
in which he is looking for traces of antique culture in Polish household.
“I’m interested in „popantiquity”, roadside architecture, loose associations and whatever people in Poland remember, like, cultivate that comes from antiquity. Traditional antique culture is retreating and we are attacked by its twin sister transformed by popculture. It is the one which builds hotels shaped like pyramids or gives birth to Trojan horses standing by the roads. They are what I’m looking for.”
What has been the conclusion of your project? (more images below)
Tell us something about this picture
The story behind that picture is actually quite simple. I took it while taking a night walk with a couple of friends around our neighbourhood. It was a very cold night, and as we aproached the lake I noticed how strange the lights looked filtered through the mist and reflected on the water’s surface. It’s just the light from a few lamp posts on the other side of the lake, but that night it looked like something else.
I went back to that place many times, but I never saw them like that again.
Following the publication of ‘Skeletons in the Closet’ WERTN sits down with Austrian photographer / self publisher Klaus Pichler for a chat.
‘Skeletons in the Closet’ will be presented at Ti Pi Tin bookstore tonight (17/10) as part of the X|12 project, a platform which promotes independent publications and invites them to London for a pop-up presentation/ exhibition.
