Through this series of photographs, Bernard Plossu offers us a poetic journey in the storerooms of the Musée des Confluences in Lyon.
Tracking the secret coherence of a heterogeneous set of objects, in the clinical atmosphere of these mysterious spaces, he will manage to awaken the inert to give it back to existence.

Biography of the author :

Bernard Plossu is a world-renowned French photographer. At the age of thirteen, his father, a seasoned mountaineer, introduced him to the African desert of the Sahara and to photography with a Brownie Flash. During his adolescence, he devoured the daily screenings at the Cinémathèque and discovered Dreyer, Bergman, Buñuel, Satyajit Ray and the New Wave. In 1965, he left for Mexico as part of an English expedition to photograph the jungle of Chiapas. He will say that this trip to Mexico allowed him to find his style, to forge his vision.
