Les Nouveaux Châteaux Forts / Renaud Wailliez
Feb 22 – Mar 24, 2019 / Galerie Claude Samuel

Renaud Wailliez

Les Nouveaux Châteaux Forts, (The new fortified castles), a word play in French between chateau d’eau (water tower) and chateau fort (fortified castle) erected between the sky and the earth, they stand proudly as huge beacons scattered on the whole territory.

Yet carried away by the speed and the routine of daily life, we often pass by without seeing them. What if these dungeons of modern times with their intriguing architecture enclosed some secret life ?

Professional photographer specialized in architectural photography Renaud Wailliez pursues personal and artistic work based on the little things of the daily life, the gentle banality of objects and the geometry of the large spaces which inspire his photographic series, an invitation to take another look onto the world and the things that surround us.
