Living to death

“Smokers are at the crossroads of the documentary. Filled with ease, full of self-satisfaction, to the point of becoming flammable! Borrowed directly from a 19th century painting, they are faces of angels, from a casting of young first ones.

Watching them surround themselves with delight with multiple volutes of smoke, the “gang of the lit ones” is the archetype of innocence, vitality and future all traced!

Here the child obviously takes power in order to probably go up in smoke himself… A kind of striptease, the pictorial story of a contemplative who shows what he has stolen from the daily life, at the moment when the ordinary merges with the extraordinary. »
