You can’t write good literature with good thoughts alone. And you can’t take good pictures if you let your emotions get in the way.
Arno Brignon, a young father and photographer, know this well. He offers us this a vision of a moment from his family life, seen from a distance. He does so not with paternal pride, but with an inquisitive look into how this two-person love story became, suddenly, a love triangle: his wife turned mother, holding, bathing, feeding, playing and sleeping with the child (turning her back on her husband); a baby girl, Joséphine, who looks without seeing and sits without posing; and Arno, the third point, masked behind his camera in search of his new place in this arrangement.
The art of Arno Brigno is to make the viewer understand—through blurry camera movements, focuses and framing— the trouble that takes hold of a man confronted with fatherhood, a trouble that the photographer translates beautifully with visual wanderings bordering on vertigo.
