    Arte Series

    A contact print is a photographer’s memory, his travel journal, the implacable witness of his transgressions and successes. Leafing through a photographer’s contact prints means accompanying him in his quest for pictures, seeing what he saw, looking at every detail though a magnifying glass. Contacts is a collection of films. The contact prints or proofs, filmed frame by frame with a fixed camera, are commented upon by the photographer who, in line with his personality, shares the very fabric of his experience and a few secrets of his creative work.
