“le jardin des cygnes”

Isolated by a wall of glass, and with only nuances of body language for clues amplified the ambiguity of human interactions in the scene below. As figures advanced and retreated across the space I wavered over the nature of their encounters – were they innocent or menacing? Their gestures, suspended in such dramatic light seemed an optical trick that offered no conclusive evidence. It was an intriguing opportunity that ultimately questions the mechanics of representation, perception and truth.
