Exhibition: "Northern Lights / The Soul of the North"

in Argentière
Presentation

Fabrice Wittner's artistic work is an invitation to enter the polar night and the traditional world of the Inuit through a series of photographs, light stencils and cyanotypes.

The nocturnal and mystical universe created around archival images of the Inuit people illuminates the polar night to remind us of the cultural fragility of a people and its environment. An image that can be transposed to the four corners of the globe that resonates with current ecological and climatic issues.

An eclectic photographer, Fabrice has been modeling light for over ten years using the technique of light painting. A principle that consists of "writing" or "drawing" using a light source on a long exposure photograph. It was in 2010 that he began to combine light painting with the stencil technique. An original approach with a unique rendering.

His exhibition presents the result of his work carried out in collaboration with the association ATKA. The light painting photos are next to portraits of Inuit printed using the cyanotype technique but also the stencils that were used to create the images in Greenland for a complete immersion in the magic of the polar night.
