Dark Lens by Cedric Delsaux

Cedric Delsaux lives and works in Paris, France. After studying cinematography and journalism, he worked as a bookseller and then as a conceptual-editor in an advertising agency. He has been a full-time photographer since 2003.

Delsaux won the Kodak prize for landscapes and architecture with his "Star Wars on Earth" series in 2005, and has seen his career as an artist grow ever since. He has been selected to work on several large automobile advertising campaigns, including Volkswagen, Touareg, Peugeot, Renault Espace, Citroen, Skoda, Adrexo, EDF, Viking and SFR. Delsaux was also selected in the Luerzer's Archive as one of the "200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide" in 2006.

Cedric questions our relationship to the world, he creates a new time frame where all boundaries are blurred, between reality and fiction, madness and sanity, where the past and the future are trapped in the present. His work challenges our relationship with time and space, forcing us to reflect on our perception. Elements of our common visual memory, holding a different relationship with every human being, inhabit each of his series.
