To the Last Path
Produced between 1999 and 2004, To the Last Path is a poetic interlude in the chaotic race of the world that David Sauveur documents for the press.
Like an essential echo to his images of conflict zones, the Polaroids he collects during his meditative immersion in the historic city reveal all the singularity of Jerusalem, between fragility and radiance, suspension and the passage of time.
“It’s the beginning of a beautiful day, and I run down the hillside, with the slope that separates me from the ramparts, awaiting the prophecy, to catch the light with my Polaroid, between dreams and chasing butterflies… I came to find what my grandfather always told me, stories of ancient Jerusalem which he tells like nobody else, but that he refuses to write down. I chase the dream, beyond time, catching the chimeras invented by men in search of a god. I go towards to the dark alleys with holes of light, the gardens of Al-Aqsa with their magical fountains, I climb over the scars left by history, and I listen to the old stones speak.”
– David Sauveur
