Nostalgia for desire by Laurent Parson

Cultural, Exhibition in Montauban
  • La Maison du Crieur, in Montauban, is hosting the exhibition “Nostalgia of Desire” by Montalban photographer Laurent Parson, from May 4 to June 1.

The question that haunts the photographer, torn between amazement and the desire to live: “but how do we inhabit absence”, the depth of time that breathes within us? Do the dead speak through the living?
    After studying philosophy and cinema, Laurent Parson spent several years doing odd jobs among the humble and invisible. Today, he is a librarian and graphic designer. What else ? All. A shattered and multiple life, like all lives, with photography as a prism where the intimate is iridescent.
    For around ten years, most of his work has been slowly disseminated through artist books and prints, scattered like so many loving letters, signs of existence. With sometimes, at the margins, an exhibition, both inventory and reinvention…
