An exploration of the human back through a series of black and white images by photographer Nikita, accompanied by texts or poetic montages by Laurent Dubois.
This project embodies a tension created by the juxtaposition of two seemingly contradictory artistic approaches which proved to converge in order to express the ambivalence of the human back. If the photographer says a desire of reification, considering the disembodied back as a valuable collector's item, a graphic adventure that everyone can appropriates, the poems render what is driving the humanity within by translating the intimate language of his singular expressions.
