Deauville Images

Tania and Vincent met at the Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne where they trained in photography and graphic design. They have lived and worked together for several years in Paris. Their work revolves around still life. More than a simple photo of a frozen nature, their images are surreal staging made of collages with objects of different scales; a graphic trompe l'oeil that makes you lose your bearings, and where the multiple dimensions of the image are played out.

One of the most famous photographs of the great master Paul Outerbridge (1896-1958) is entitled Image de Deauville and dates from 1936. This American photographer, the first to have reconciled art and commerce, has undoubtedly never put his feet in Deauville, but he imagined the city (with a thimble, a silver sphere, a yellow pyramid, a shell and a seascape) as a window through which we look at an interior landscape. Tania and Vincent came to Deauville to find the spirit of the master. At Planche (s) Contact in 2012, they imagined compositions made with souvenirs bought by tourists and incredible objects that a local collector has accumulated for years. The series are treated as stories where each photograph is related to a chapter. 

This photographic commission was their second work presented to the public after an exhibition at the European House of Photography in 2010.
