Contre-jour emerges from a photographic experiment carried out in Japan where artist Josée Pedneault created a visual calendar materialising the duration of her trip. Seventy-five photograms exposed daily to the sun are combined with a series of nighttime photographs of cherry blossoms. Contre-jour captures the light of day through the continuous movement of the Earth on itself and around the Sun. Through opposites and contrasts, the book-object offers in every detail of its structure a meditation on time and a contemplation on the cyclical measures that punctuate our lives.
An essay by Safia Belmenouar accompanies the publication.
