It’s probably not by chance that for this new body of work, François Halard (b. 1961, French) chose exclusively ancient and almost entirely archeological subjects – statues, busts, and sculptural fragments. These were photographed with a Polaroid camera then re-framed, blown up, re-worked, and finally smeared in wax – and in some cases covered in words and names drawn with a brush. The photographer has fostered a passion for the Polaroid process; over the years it seems to have become his favorite medium, allowing him to experiment intimately and alchemically.

→ Excerpt from the foreword written by opera director Vincent Huguet (b. 1976, French). Translated from French to English by Jeanne-Salomé Rochat.
