£38.00 IN STOCK

For a long time Gaël Bonnefon titled his work About Decline. A body of photographs spread over more than ten years that pays tribute to the beauty of the banal and of the mundane. He explores its interstices between the visible and the invisible, where ordinary life reveals its dark sides. A work that evolves over the years but whose writing preserves a same coherence: here the landscapes (waterfalls, forests or deserted expanses…) vibrate with the same force and intensity as the scenes or the worn out, exhausted and breathless – but very much alive – portraits of people.

Gaël Bonnefon graduated from the Fine Arts school of Toulouse and has shown his work at the Villa Pérochon, at the 104 (Paris), in Arles, at PhotoEspana, at the Musée des Abattoirs in Toulouse. His work is part of collections at the FRAC Midi-Pyrénées, the Chateau d’Eau gallery and The Kiyosato Museum (Japan).

The first retrospective publication of his work, Elegy for the Mundane presents the diversity of an ever homogeneous piece that addresses violence and decline as much as softness and tenderness. Here feelings are not fixed but resonate with each other...
