A contretemps

Patrick Taberna started this serie six years ago. « A contretemps » (On the off beat) is a long and slow work about his nearests, mainly produced during different trips. His family is the common thread of his piece of work, and the trip, even nearby, remains an excuse, to create. This need of the trip (even the closest) is a stimulus for the imagination, regaining through it a sense of childhood where every day is full of discoveries, and the mind is fully dedicated to the moment.
"A contretemps" is a work on sensations of childhood, on the impressions lasting in memories, in this slight lag of time in our daily lives. Simplicity is a difficult balance to achieve.
Patrick Taberna manages in his photographs to share this happiness with a look that is both simple and unique. Plossu Bernard wrote in his afterword to "Au fil des jours": "What I feel, seeing those pictures of Patrick Taberna, that he needs them to live ...".
Indeed, this photograph is important because it starts from a need to retain (to regain) this primordial feeling, both common and absolutely personal, that "Rosebud" in us more than we think: the childhood memory.
