Terra Cognita - Urban Jungle

Erwan Fichou

Miradors (Mexico, 2010)

Photography is not so much a matter of recording reality, but rather creates a narrative framework in which interaction and projection play a large role. We live in a world of images, Fichou says, but these images precede a supposed reality that we construct in our mind. For his series MIRADORS Fichou had trees along the streets of Mexico City trimmed by nurserymen, after which he asked people to climb into the trees to pose for the photos. Reality, or not?
