Unlike the entomologist who "pin up" his specimens carefully to not conceal their anatomy, I prefer to hide mine! What importance has the truth if it obliges me to destroy my subjects to dissect them. My insects are only approximations! If I intrude in their parallel everyday life it is to gather a few excerpts of their short stories which usually take place behind closed doors. Never mind if I miss what others regard as essential. And if I am deaf to the tragedies related to the survival of the species that prevail here. I am aware that my photographs only scratch the surface of this world. But with the hope to collect perhaps a touch of poetry!

About the Author

David Ponce
david-ponce Corenc (38), France

Through photography, I found a way not only to record memories, but also to express my feelings, a way to see the world in my own way. And the "frame", inherently reductive, proved me, on the contrary, that it can open new perspectives, which ask new questions.

Grâce à la photographie, j'ai trouvé un moyen, non seulement d'enregistrer des souvenirs, mais aussi d'exprimer mes sentiments, une façon de voir le monde à ma façon. Et le «cadre», intrinsèquement réducteur, m'a prouvé, au contraire, qu'il peut ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives, qui posent des questions nouvelles.
