Fascinated with cinema and its atmospheres, Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy (1986) returned to his passion for pictures through photography and video. In 2011, he opened the workshop/photo gallery L'ABAT-JOUR in Lyon where he organizes exhibitions and has a silver lab in association with other photographers. In his work, he locates himself as a spectator of a distant world, questioning an individual’s place within his environment. His eye brings a confusion between reality and fiction, presenting the image to question the unknown and the void. He uses this contradiction to reflect a feeling of derealization, an alteration in the perception of the external world, like living as a stranger in fake scenery, or being included in it, like a shape amidst other shapes.
