Unknown #2

Tentative d’épuisement d’un livre

In 2007, Stéphane Duroy published in Filigranes the book Unknown, composed of photographs taken during his many trips to the United States, from New York to Montana. Due to a slight lack of printing, it recovers a hundred non-marketable copies. Two years later, he began a long process of work on the book. Collages, press clippings, anonymous photographs, abstract paintings come to nourish the original work that it will not cease subsequently to dismantle.
Between 2009 and 2017, Stéphane Duroy produced 28 original books. This work is still ongoing.
