Affiche fe2o3 3rd bath in memory of rdb



Considering the often photographed elements of oxidized metal, Egrégor decided to dig deeper. It seems that his passion for passing time is expressed in this exhibition, which is a zoom of the time that attacks materials. The colors, the textures are all beauties that emerge and fascinate. Marvel at the beauty of the rust that we are trying to stop as well as we try to hide the wrinkles that appear on our faces, that however do not detract from the charm of the character. On the contrary, they reflect his experience.

When he discovered with great interest the exhibition Edward Burtynsky at the Photographer's Gallery in London, he decided to finally embark on the adventure of exhibition.

Fe2O3 | Precision on Corrosion was presented to the public in a first version at the Pavillon Henri II in Villers-Cotterets (France), an exceptional place, full of history, where the passage of time is pervasive. A second edition was presented during the Festival OFF in margin of the Photaumnales photography Festival in Beauvais (France).

The photographs show only Egregor's reality despite very first pictorial impression. Knowing how to look differently and at other scales to better understand the matter around us and find the light and color where you least expect it.

Only thanks to the photographer, "Fe2O3 | Precision on Corrosion [3rd Bath]" highlights a world oh so colorful and catchy, and sweeping the dirty and sad rust dull image.

 "Photographing the last time of the day or the imminence of decay is also a way to capture the beauty of what is lost"
