Awesome c-prints by Stéphane Couturier selected from three different series of manipulations falling under the header of Melting Point.
A statement from the artist’s website concerning the series:
In this series Couturier extends his decades long project of exploring how modern cultures simultaneously construct and destroy.
Using a large format camera, Couturier creates crisply detailed prints that expand the viewer’s awareness of how a photograph can look and how urban occurrences can be conceptualized. Each picture is printed from a sandwiching of two moments in time, creating highly abstract yet precisely detailed images. People, machines, car parts, wires and more all compete for the viewer’s attention—images of industry simultaneously out of control and in perfect harmony.
