Fable invites us to seek in everything the overthrow of the known, to call on vertigo, excess, unreason, in order to reconnect with nature and limitlessness, in a brutal confrontation with what is. The photographic gesture tends here towards the visceral and the origin. It is a photographic meditation on the duality of the human being, between elevation and cruelty, between contemplation and experience, between humility and hybris. (Elie Monferier)
For Elie Monferier, “[the] photographer does not have the ambition to stop the course of the world. On the contrary, he experiences it, he constantly confronts it. At every moment, he combines his experience and his perception in an impossible tension, from which the photograph results and bears witness. Photography is raw material which, springing from its failure to grasp reality, leads us towards the abstraction of thought and invites us to probe the ambiguity that our human condition brings out of any situation and any act.
