Autobiographical book showing the author’s relationship with her couple. It shows different aspects of a “love story”. How loneliness can appear after a choice we make, in a search for tranquility, a need to explore, a separation from that world that surrounds you from which you do not want to be influenced. How there is a need of complicity to make things work. It shows the evolution of a couple under formation, and what happens when they choose to be “alone together”. They become one, and disappear, being now different, no longer composed by the sum of those two.

Dimensions: 10 x 8 inches
Edition:N/A, hand-signed by the artist
A collection of moody and quiet Australian Landscapes shot on 35mm film. Damian has been proudly and exclusively shooting film for almost 20 years, often being calling a ‘stubborn purist’ as he has never used a digital camera. He loves the slow, careful process and discipline of using film; taking only one photograph of something and learning from his mistakes, often not discovered 'til weeks later when the film is processed. He enjoys travelling on his own in no particular direction to see where the road and his eye takes him. These images are the product of many a road-trip and unplanned adventure.

Nos feux nous appartiennent (“The Fires That Bind Us”) gathers together different series that have been echoing each other. This collection explores the theme of the clan and by extension the concept of belonging, through the narratives that run through it and the remote imaginary places that family legends recount. (…)I come from a family of gardeners, landscapers, plant breeders, horticulturists, and florists. For five generations the men of my clan have organized space, and sought to maintain and discipline it. They have pruned trees, carried off and burned plant waste; kept a watchful eye over fires; towed away roots; raked the leaves of yards littered with gravel; planted hedges; delivered flowers; adorned funerals, baptisms, birthdays and weddings; and participated in all the rituals that shape lives. The scent of orange blossoms has a transfixing effect on our family. Its perfume leaves us stunned and brings to mind withered flowers, green moss, sheared stems, and rising sap. Fire is the crux of this structure. It is a highly symbolic catalyst that acts as a rallying force. The landscapes of Armenia are made up of great charred deserts, military viewpoints that are depopulated of bellicose events. They are places of gunshots and lookouts, spots from which shots are fired. We see my brother’s soot-covered face (...) Marine Lanier
