“WITH CITIES, IT IS AS WITH DREAMS: EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE CAN BE DREAMED, BUT EVEN THE MOST UNEXPECTED DREAM IS A REBUS THAT CONCEALS A DESIRE OR, ITS REVERSE, A FEAR.

Artist from Paris with an architect formation, I use analog photo camera and video-projection to work on the perception of urban space and architecture. http://jeremiedru.com/

The double exposure is a technique which allows the capture of a space moldable space-time. It consists in photographing several times on the same negative, and which allows to melt independent events from each other in a quite coherent.
