1. Corruptions series.
2. Surfaces series.

"As I see it, images – truncated representations – multiply the failure of our experiences: by essence, photography is a medium that embodies the tension created by a subject both close and remote. It is a metaphor for my own inability to grasp the world, but has the power to transfigure. For the point is also to transform an empirical subject into something new, something sculptural, with a life of its own. Transforming objects may just be the best way to describe them. Only then can we assume our presence as an onlooker, trapped in a body and a mind that must convey – or create? – reality."—Gafsou about Surfaces.

Matthieu Gafsou (1981) is a franco-swiss photographer based in Lausanne.
