Nothing but home
HC, 23 x 30 cm., 49 pp., Ltd. ed. of 500 copies
French-photographer Girard has chosen his home as a starting point for a long-term photographic project. In his debut, produced "at home", with a high standard in printing and design. His pictures look like mistifying close-ups, but they are full of hints and possibilities with great clarity of vision.
"Sebastien Girard (b.1970) didn't study photography but architecture. In 1990 he realized the importance of the photobook as a medium with the discovery of a japanese version of Ed van der Elsken's famous book BAGARA. Since this time photobooks have become his main obsession. In 2009, Girard self-published his first book Nothing but Home. Then, in 2010, came Desperate Cars, the second book of the series. And finally, in 2011, the third volume has been published: Under House Arrest." (Dalpine)
