French photographer Adeline Care likes to conceive creations at the borders of fiction and reality. When she discovered the basaltic landscapes of Etna, and the impossibility that any life form may be born there, she imagined what the extinction of the human race would be like. Disappearance became an obvious theme. With Aïthō (I burn), she presents a lunar and post-apocalyptic series. A photographic novel in which she layered humans narrations and geological strata. Here is a work nourished by research on life in high altitudes and images of bodies of alpinist frozen by the cold. A sensorial reality delivered by textures and perspectives. Images that give us vertigo – a symbol of disappearance.
