    About The Work

    Inside a Triangle propounds an exploration of landscapes and especially of their representations. The book consists of photographs, taken around the world, of roads and paths that seem to extend to infinity. Each panorama is framed very precisely: a road starting at our feet fills the whole bottom edge of the image and moves towards the horizon which is placed exactly on the upper edge of the image.

    In the center of the horizon, perspective and vanishing point show the roads, not as infinite lines inviting to walk across the landscape and beyond, but as triangles drawn in front of us, catching and capturing our glance. The vast areas in the photographs are brought on the surface of the pages of the book. They are like signs, like writing. The flow goes then vertically, from page to page, rather than horizontally, from one vanishing point to another.

    Each of these images found on the Internet by Claude Closky has been rigorously selected and cropped by the artist so that they exactly overlap each other. As the right-hand page is reserved for the image alone, the caption, which indicates the place where the picture was taken, appears next to it on the left-hand page.
