HS is a journal of 18 photographs that echo the story of Amaury da Cunha, Histoire souterraine, published simultaneously with the editions of Rouergue.
This publication constitutes an echo chamber, as a photographic annex, in the margin of the text.
In this autobiographical narrative, there is talk of the death of a brother in Singapore, a rupture in love in Sicily, and multiple incidents of fatal.
If we find some places (Sicily, Asia …) and the striking faces of history, these images are neither legend nor located in time or space.
They draw an autonomous space, potentially narrative, marked by the dazzling, the oddity, and the gloomy beauty of the world.
Like “wandering Icons whose destiny is to go adrift,” to quote the poet Roberto Juarroz.
