Photography has always been for Pierre Blache intimately related to displacement; either at the corner of his street or at the other end of the world, wandering gives him the necessary state of mind for capturing images. These images allow him to build fictions that are fed with impressions and emotions, as well as brief forays into the local culture.
Blache opts for sequences of images that interact with each other to create a different reality, a dialogue that is established through formal and poetic associations. He prefers the evocation to the description and in this sense pursues his photographic research on different lines of thought that he feels particularly drawn to: the imprint of the sacred, the ambiguity of things, the presence of the other and the genius loci. Pierre Blache approaches certain large urban agglomerations from within (Mexico, Shanghai, Tokyo, Rome…) without really trying to document them; not even pretending to understand them. Probably to find inspiration, certainly for the dizziness they provide us.
