“…The idea of Terra Incognita and scientific exploration is at the heart of these projects.It is a constant search consisting in attempting to give depth and scale to landscape-objects made exclusively in studio. How by artificial reproduction might one get closer to nature’s perfection? Every photograph begins as an object, ahand-crafted construction before the photographic production. It is important to notice the stages in which the object takes shape and acquires all of its value through the final photograph. The artificial reproduction allows one to express an idea in its exactness. Whether inspired by real things or not, these pictures are hypotheses of a certain reality.Landscapes (their repr√©sentations) have always been mere interpretations of real space, and thus situated somewhere between illusion and myth. These images are a personal, finite cosmos. A territory I have delimited. What is important is to create the seeming of an existing physical space. Hence perception can sway between the impression of reality, the illusion and its interpretation.My work aims to blur the boundaries between space and time through photographic medium.” – Charles Negre
