In Fisheyes very own gallery, Jean-Christian Bourcart uses his political gaze to create a work of art. “ I am in Washington with a group of anarchists to protest against Donald Trump’s inauguration. While Trump pours out his speech full of venom, a fine rain comes to mourn over the half-empty National Mall. I photograph Trump’s supporters with frantic frustration. Faced with this dreary and dark mass, with their fallacious and mean conceptions, my camera turns itself into a machine that degrades their image, cutting their faces, tracking their forced and uncomfortable grins, staring at their amputated humanity. These photographs are the expression of my revolt.”
