Stéphane Charpentier’s photographs manifest conflicted inner worlds; they haunt with the essence of the present time. “The Core,” continues his never-ending analog series. Scattered within a worn scientific text, the photographs make a poetic parallel between the duality of human souls and nuclear fission. At the heart of a being or the deep center of an atom, energies coalesce, diffuse, or ignite. « The Core » shows visions of characters trapped in an alienating and dystopian environment, and gives the perception that human activity has overpassed a forbidden or dangerous border.
