Stéphane Charpentier – The Eclipse

by SunSun


The Eclipse offers a panorama of photographs by Stéphane Charpentier in silver black and white, captured over the course of a decade in Greece, a country reflecting a world plunged into economic, political and human crises. But more than a documentary or an intimate essay, The Eclipse reveals different levels of reading and meaning. The book combines poetic images of a suffering humanity, with an iconography that is both symbolic and dreamlike, almost metaphysical. Interludes composed of mosaics of rephotographed prints evoke this density and this contemporary chaos, while the last sequence of images opens onto natural, virgin and dazzling spaces, from which all the light finally springs. The texts in English and French are transcriptions of recorded dialogues and form a background sound on this present torn between struggle and hope.
