Pacing in Europe for ten years, Julien Menand has found home in photography and welcomes the viewer into this ambiguous world. Asked to look at what escapes his eye, to enter an image that is observed, he is led to question constantly what he sees, and to look what he could find beyond. These images en trompe-loeil involve the space of and in photography and question the essence of the exhibition: what is given to see and whom is this addressing ? Looking for a Neo-Pictorialism aesthetic emancipated from painting, Julien offers purely photographic views, captured on large and medium film format.

Georgia in my mind / Photographic Essay
The poetic of my work lies in the staging and pictorial construction. The theme is subjectivized, and is described and revised according to my feelings and my culture. There is no explicit referent to these images as such. They do not refer to a condition or a time that needs to exist historically or so-cially. They reveal something peculiar to me. Thats why I see some of my work more as an essay in photography, going empty minded and trying to photograph through a felt-sense as a way to keep distant from the all media principles.
