It’s probably not by chance that for this new body of work, François Halard (b. 1961, French) chose exclusively ancient and almost entirely archeological subjects – statues, busts, and sculptural fragments. These were photographed with a Polaroid camera then re-framed, blown up, re-worked, and finally smeared in wax – and in some cases covered in words and names drawn with a brush. The photographer has fostered a passion for the Polaroid process; over the years it seems to have become his favorite medium, allowing him to experiment intimately and alchemically.

Excerpt from the foreword written by opera director Vincent Huguet (b. 1976, French). Translated from French to English by Jeanne-Salomé Rochat.
