About This Project

Goguely Tommy



These photographs are part of a series that depicts water towers painted in sky-blue tones, presumably in order to blend them into their surroundings on cloudless days. Captured frontally at the precise moment when the sun illuminates them directly, these utilitarian architectures now reveal only their evanescent outlines and appear as if erased from the landscape. By actualizing the deletion of these structures, these images illustrate the paradigm shift at work in the contemporary aesthetic conception of the landscape. They also evoke the supposed dissolution of the photographic referent with the advent of digital technology, thereby enunciating the new conditions of visibility of a fading reality.
