After Lights Out
2013 - 2014
Night no longer exists. City lights cover up the stars, and cell phone screens lighten even the darkest of alleyways. And soon, imagine a world in which our lights render even the sun gratuitous. In the darkness of space, light is a beacon of hope. What if darkness in our world once again overtook the night and as an affect, transforming even the most insignificant light into an exception – a mystical phenomenon? In a world in black and blue, the single incandescence of a bulb could be the greatest promise of an adventure about to start.
A little about Julien Mauve
I am an author photographer based in Paris, creating staged, cinematographic and narrative photography series dealing with human interactions and conditions. Loneliness, nostalgia and the rise of new technologies are recurring themes in my different projects.
Rewarded by several prices including the prestigious SFR Jeunes Talents in 2013, my work has recently been shortlisted for the LEICA OSKAR BARNACK award and exhibited in the Somerset House, during the Sony World Photography Awards in London.
I'm also a Sony Global Imaging Ambassador since 2013.
