20 Landscapes | photographs by Olivier Cauquil
I take photographs.
I take pictures. I stop.
I let myself be overwhelmed by what I see.
I take. I am not a technician. I take pictures.
I look for my old pictures. I cut them.
Cut out. They are new.
No content. Silent. Little contrast.
On the screen I work on the gray tones.
A little black. It is necessary. I scrutinize. I modify.
I destroy the light often. False day.
And it’s the story, it’s the poetry, it’s the stealthy feeling.
It is in Italy. It is five o’clock the awning has remained half-open, one hears the rumor of the beach which gradually resumes.
It’s also an instant impression of déjà vu.
It is in Manhattan, the documentary Style suddenly.
It is the solitude of this street that turns.
I am Parisian. Every year I spend a lot of time near the city of Toulouse. I am 67. I studied at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris. I worked in drawing, illustration, graphic design and advertising. I always took pictures. Some images in this exhibition are more than 35 years old. I have been working with analog cameras, 35 mm, 6 x 6, 6 x 7. With a Polaroid 195. I now work with a Polaroid SX 70 and a small Sony digital camera.
I work in Paris. In Toulouse.
