Alexandre Navarro’s music is intriguing, introverted and almost molecular. His lastest release ‘Anti-Matiere’ on the label is just that. Through a 9 track LP we are taken through the realms of modular synths, pads and ethereal soundspheres while still keeping a laid-back catchy atmospheres.
Jean Salomez, young photographer based in Montréal, usually working mostly on urban portraits, took up the challenge of giving his photographic view of the album. Through his lens he sets his own definition of Anti-Matiere. 8 photos, each of which individually and by pair represent a specific understanding of Anti-Matiere:
- Relationship to time
- Mass contrasts
“I took the scientific concept of anti-matter and applied it to my photography. Matter and Anti-Matter, are considered as two bounding though mutually opposite entities. I thus decided to work with double exposure on the spheres.”
“In this one, details are simplified, leaving space to the most important: the spheres, their environment and what they include.
“What do I like in these photographs? The idea of two masses meeting one another”
“I also decided to work with shadows and light as they also represent this concept of opposite masses.”
“The perfect symmetry of two elements, matter embracing anti-matter, reality of all things in life.”
“I wanted to create balance between two elements, all cohabiting in the same space, in an image, and thus in similar realities.”
