NEW FRENCH TOUCH

"Color One", "First Ones Collection" presents the very first photographs in history; first permanent photograph, first color photograph, first underwater photograph... New French Touch captures the very first photographs in history at a time when our images have become more important than we are. Our everyday images take precedence over our lives. We show before we feel, eat, breathe. We no longer live, we exhibit. The photo has thus become the star object. By photographing the first images captured more than 150 years ago, we exhibit the absurd and we question the being, showing it what it has become. From then on, it is no longer the photograph that is frozen, but the consciousness. The third work in this collection is called "Color One", a digital photograph enhanced with the first enduring color photographic image, "Tartan Ribbon", created by James Clerk Maxwell with the support of Thomas Sutton in 1861 in England.
