Jérémie Lenoir – Dust

by Light Motiv

39,00

In the previous work, NORD, published in April 2016 by Light Motiv, photographer Jérémie Lenoir flew over the axis of industrial heritage reconversion between Arras and Antwerp.

With this new series DUST, he travels the boundary between water and land all around Utah’s Salt Lake, where human mining of sodium, magnesium, potassium, and petroleum takes place. The amazing colors result from the concentration of salt, algae, microorganisms, or are artificially generated by additives accelerating evaporation or by some discharges from the few facilities.

Protocol of realization: during several residencies spread over 3 years, Jérémie Lenoir photographed the contours of the salt lake, multiplying the flights above each selected space to follow, trace and understand its transformation.

The photographer always takes his shots at the same time, around noon, when the sun is at its zenith; this light that crushes the reliefs and the colors offers a neutrality and a flatness essential to obtain this confusion between photography and painting. All the images are also captured at the same altitude, around 450 m / 1500ft, and with the same fixed focal length to obtain a consistency of scale.

By combining aerial point of view and abstraction, the artist continues his work of anthropology of the landscape while experimenting, even more intensely in this new series, the limits of the photographic medium; a sensitive and unique look on our contemporary world.

Light Motiv

Les Editions Light Motiv s’appuient avant tout sur une ligne artistique qui conjugue la mémoire et l’action. Il s’agit de créer des livres qui affrontent le réel au moment d’une transformation sociale, urbaine, naturelle… tout en combinant de manière harmonieuse et pertinente l’écrit et le visuel, les mots et les images, le littéraire et le pictural.
Dans chaque projet, entre les pages de chaque ouvrage, des questions se posent, s’imposent, et s’entremêlent.

Que se passe-t-il ? Peut-on le saisir, le comprendre ? Doit-on s’y adapter ou faire face ?

Le projet éditorial de Light Motiv est d’amener, grâce à la construction du livre et de sa mise en page, les photographies et les textes au même plan de lecture. Rechercher le rythme, l’accord entre ces deux langages qui va épouser le récit documentaire ou intime, la fiction dans les fractures du réel, ou bien encore la recherche sociologique, la découverte artistique…
