Above all else
Photography and the functional object
06 18 ... 09 18 2016

Today, photographic images are omnipresent. Since its invention, photography has slowly insinuated itself into every layer of our daily lives. It is our go-to tool when representing ourselves and the world, and it acts as a direct or indirect mirror of what we are. The development of photography has gone hand in hand with the growth of the consumer society in which the functional object whether it be artisanal or manufactured, occupies a predominant place. The presence of photographs of innumerable everyday objects questions the relationship that we maintain with the image and the value we give it.
