"The Eye Listens" - A Photographic Series by Julien Drach

Connolly is delighted to present the work of French photographer Julien Drach (b.1973). Chosen by Isabel from his IN-VISIBLE series; an abstract body of photography, dedicated to multiple cities like Rome and Paris, but reaching far beyond the surface, into our memories and our imaginations.For Julien, today, fences, walls of often derelict buildings, subway platforms and sidewalks continue to accumulate layers of life, with powerful hidden messages and a strata of memories.The work echoes the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi celebrating the fragile beauty of objects, their impermanence and the details almost invisible to those who don’t slow their gaze to understand their profound aesthetics.

These images are a simple record of the beauty of the ephemeral nature of life.They are also visual archives of cities in perpetual motion. The poet, Paul Claudel says ‘the eye listens ‘ and Julien with his lens, expands the viewer’s sensory information. One might feel the need to see, listen to and touch this ‘matter ‘, captured by the magic of the ‘camera obscura’. Each city, each detail of a wall has a singular colour, a vibration.
