Unconscious Underground
Unconscious Underground

I began exploring the specificities of the Parisian architecture, looking for something to learn more about its inhabitants, and I found an element that wasn’t visible from the streets: the cellar (or “cave” in French).

I discovered that most people in Paris use the cellar to store a whole range of things and sometimes even their owners don’t know what’s inside their cellars.

In “The Poetics of Space” of French thinker Gaston Bachelard, he says that the attic corresponds to the spiritual elevation and the cellar, to the unconscious. Notably in trying to put into words what I was looking to capture in my pictures of cellars: people’s unconscious.
