Parisnomics - Jean-Manuel Simoes

I always liked the panoramic format for the wealth of the visual information itprovides. As a photo-reporter, I find the wide-angle lens captures both subject sought and also its environment and context,  thereby considerably enriching the photograph.
The Parisnomics serie adds a further technical complexity to the wide-angle shot. All the photographs in this series, taken on the streets of Paris, are surimpositions realized during the shooting (rather than in the development process in the darkroom). After the first shot I had to look for the next shot that could casino online be surimposed on the first in a coherent manner. The surimposition enrichies and makes the first image more complex, unimaginable, while preserving traces of observed and fleeting reality.
In order to accentuate the somewhat ghostly effect produced by the successive surimpositions, I deliberately developed the prints in soft, nuanced tones of grey and white.
This series will be exhibited at the Galerie Odile Boïcos in Paris from 17th January to 23th February, 2013.
