In Between — 2013

This time, Paul consciously stages his acquaintances. In a more polished style, the pictures share aesthetics with the advertising world. Where the mercantile image stops at the surface, at the artificial masks, the characters here reveal their intimacy. They expose their doubts, publicizing them in their own way, as if playing for a moment with their difficulty to find their place in this world.

Logically, Paul chose them as if they each represented a part of his own doubts. In practice, he voluntarily directs them in the wrong way, lets them wait, sometimes making them feel uncomfortable, and catches the moment when the mind of the friend and character is wandering somewhere else. Even though they don’t know each other, when placed together, they interact. They fall into a common unconscious state. The moment of the shot relates the encounter between two temporalities : what might have happened before, and what will occur next.
