Unknow

The process of Yvan Alvarez's work consisted of meeting merchants and employees of all types of establishments during my daily strolls. At each meeting, I asked them what their favorite place was. Secondly, I went to these places to photograph them. Each photograph has an excerpt from the conversation in the form of subtitles. The result is photographic prints nailed to pieces of wood to obtain singular objects like the relational aspect of this work.
