Géraldine Bruneel
"Photography reveals the visible as well as the invisible. For several years, I have been photographing abandoned spaces, in transit, destructured, testifying to a past. All bear the scars of human history. The vestiges are transformed into ultimate invitations to remember, to search for lost time. The shots are taken in the "4x5" room, a slow process, which refers to the idea of the slow but inexorable decomposition that strikes these places. The approach becomes a form of photographic archaeology."
A specialist in architectural photography, Géraldine Bruneel began her career as a photojournalist for the Gamma agency, covering conflicts around the world, which led her to spend three years in Beirut, then three years in Madrid, and to develop a pronounced taste for travel.
