When Black Is Burned is a series between reality and fiction, poetry and everyday life, that plays with the codes of abstraction and photographic figuration to plunge us into a brightly colored chiaroscuro universe, populated by shadows, ghosts and daydreams. This work is made of light and dense matter, where shadows create landscapes and patterns. The burnt black of the shadows resonates with the intensity of the colors and the sensuality of the bodies. In this series, we present for the first time reworked negative photographs – painted or colored – alongside silver and digital photographs of all kinds.

The book is accompanied by an original text by Damarice Amao, an art historian currently working at the Centre Pompidou-Paris.
