“Here is a color based project related to hasard & photography. A special attention hold during my travels surrounded many occasions to catch ‘fake twins’ situations.The tourism conditions we all have to deal with, deliberately or not, during our journeys, carry a very specific garment equipment away in order to face the long days of unknown landscape’s exploration. Not only talking about the almost mandatory sneackers, or rucksacks (but why not), people often happen in a situation wearing exactly the same outfits, or at least one very similar item in it. Couples buying a special jacket for the occasion, friends hasardly wearing the same stuff that day, whatever… In order to focus, and reveal those inherent situations, i started to take photographs of the ‘fake twins’ i met during my trips; people’s back as a more accurate point of view, centered in the frame; and i related them with the specific color worn, to explore the whole RGB spectrum at our disposal.”
