Publisher Note

For more than 20 years, photographer Ulrich Lebeuf has covered social events for the French and foreign press. In recent years, he has seen the rise of extreme social violence with new territories of confrontation called ZAD, or in the streets of France since November 2018. These latest events have forced the press photographer to question his photography in order not to more to inform, but to question by a more subjective and dark work. Its colors, gray and black, melt the men against the backdrop of a theater of discomfort, ghosts living this land like their tomb. This series oscillates between the essence of photography and the existence of a mental vision of chaos, a perpetual state of appearances and disappearances, actualizing a virtual reality rather than reproducing a tangible reality.
