Slow shutter speeds, deep blacks and brilliant whites contribute to the images seeming to create a reality or phase of their own, in between day and night, activity and sleep, the personal and the anonymous, reality and dreams. The images show the duality of the presence and absence of mankind in a world where everything is short-lived, uncontrollable and transient. Despite being moments frozen in time, everything seems fluid. Nothing is fixed; the moments extend into one another.
Les faits secondaires takes us on a journey about and around the journey, around the moment, the continuous stream of moments, around the experience. With great sensitivity, Christophe Agou records this in monochromatic, intuitive images that seem to transcend reality.
