Alain BELLONE - HUMAN URBAN TRACKS
A PHOTOGRAPHICS IS A PHOTO WITH A SOUL OF PAINTING.
Alain Bellone takes so much freedom with his camera as a painter with his brush. It is not a question either " effects of car lights", or of " light painting "and some computer manipulations ! Everything takes place in the shooting.The idea being to join the plastic arts, Alain Bellone frees himself from conventional rules of the photography. Before printing, he adjusts the photo with the aim of stressing its pictorial character. Retouch stays an exception.
PhotoGraphics is above all a poetry of the image. Alain Bellone draws an image which wants to give to see more than to show.
.It is, on this border between the photo and the painting , there, between the reality and the dream, that Alain Bellone invites us to let our eyes reinvent his PhotoGraphics, as the children look at clouds
SERIE : HUMAN URBAN TRACKS
Paris Metro and Streets
This serie is an expression of my way of taking pictures. are
Human Urban Tracks is an attempt to keep a poetical track, a pictorial memory taken instantanatly with one "brush-camera".
There is no retouching !
In places of transit, urban mobility, in these underground places which do not look at aesthetics, color, energy, to the unceasing flow of passengers, Alain Bellone instantly captures the beauty and invisible. But rather than duplicate what anyone can see, its goal is to create an impression. He plays on the senses to inspire the senses. It uses the movement of the body to draw a different meaning.
These photos were taken mostly in the corridors of the Parisian subway, some in the streets of the French Capital.
Then, he creates images communicate motion, colors and sometime, even sensuality !
The DREAM would be to present this series of photographs in the STREET or in a PUBLIC SPACE like a subway or a train station!
