"As if there still weren't enough of reality, of that awful reality… »
- Henri Michaux

War has killed, war has ended, enemies have talked, elections have taken place, reconstruction has begun, armies are on the verge to merge, the constitution has waited for years to exist and eventually will… Photography can be a medium to tell these stories.
These stories can be told through hard facts; this is the job of photojournalists.
But these stories can also be told through what sits just next to the facts, or under them, or behind them, or who knows where else in their vicinity. Staring at the afterglow of reality, drifting away in its faint lights, it becomes possible to search in a new territory, the manifestations of another truth.
Photography then no longer is a medium of telling what is. It is a matter of gathering often insignificant pieces of a puzzle that one needs to accept not to wholly comprehend. Photography then becomes a medium that creates a universe that is more acceptable than the reality.
Slowness. Hesitation. Following the wrong light if necessary. Ultimately an entire picture will emerge that illuminates the unknown.
