Meriadeck Chronicles

On television they were showing this adaptation of the Martian Chronicles with Rock Hudson. I found the scenery interesting.

Meriadeck is a version of the Defense without towers. The gardens evoke certain places in the Parc Floral de Paris. I survey the decorations of the districts like the last observer. Entrenched, Omega Man in a post apocalyptic world. Spared, on borrowed time, not yet contaminated.

The gaze carried like a last vision that I carry away forever. I realize.

The ruins evoke past civilizations. Here it is the one in the making. New buildings replace those that crumble and fall on their own.

I'm not a shutter-trigger-frenzy shooter, a few more cartridges in the barrel. 12 shots per 6x6 roll of color positive Ektachrome 120 roll. Now silver is worth gold. I let myself be impregnated by the place. I have the time. Until sunset.

Bordeaux, 2016

Cibachrome prints were presented at the Frontiera as part of the exhibition Fragments (2017).
