Cheap Land, a photographic serie by Richard Petit

"Realised with a photographic chamber 4 x 5, according to a very rigorous photographic technique, Richard Petit's images belong to the Düsseldorf school and to Becher's tradition : readability, frontality. Just looking at the world, at the right distance. Physical distance, but also emotional distance. Looking for the right place which makes a look on rality become a look on subject. The style is documentary, but the place is imaginary."

Christian Maccotta
