Prise de vue au Hasselblad 503cw avec dos numérique. www.hegemonchaignon.com insta : @hegemonchaignon Et s’il était possible de photographier les souvenirs ? Les souvenirs sont des fragments de vie, à mi-chemin entre le rêve et la réalité. Par essence, ils sont flous, assez similaires à ce qui se produit lorsque nous rêvons. Et pour autant, ils sont bien réels, engrammés dans nos cellules, prêts à surgir au moindre prétexte. Porteurs d’émotions et des sensations, ils nourrissent notre imaginaire, nous font voyager dans un monde onirique. C’est l’envie de capturer ces moments qui m’a poussé à explorer l’utilisation du sténopé. Cet appareil photo très simple permet d’obtenir une image en laissant passer la lumière à travers un minuscule trou servant d'objectif. Cette simplicité me permet aussi de travailler ma prise de vue et ainsi d’obtenir un rendu plus évaporé. Cette technique, aussi appelée « camera obscura » (chambre noire) fut inventé en Perse vers l'an 1000. Elle fut très utilisée par les peintres, à partir de la Renaissance et notamment par Léonard de Vinci qui en, 1514, en parle dans son Codex Atlanticus. Souvenir (nom masculin) : survivance, dans la mémoire, d'une sensation, d'une impression, d'une idée, d'un événement passés : Un souvenir agréable. Source : Larousse.fr

Hegemon’s work revolves around the concept of immediate memory of happiness. Capturing memories when they are born, photographing the retinal persistence, halfway between reality, memories and dreams. My latest series are made with digital pinhole photography to illustrate this persistence of vision and memory, between blur and sharpness, between photography and painting. The pinhole camera is a simple camera that provide an image by passing light through a tiny hole for the lens. This technique also called “Camera obscura” (dark room) was invented in Persia around the year 1000, and is widely used by artists, especially from the Renaissance. In 1514 Leonardo da vinci said :”Leaving the images of illuminated objects penetrate through a small hole in a very dark room then you’ll catch these images on a white sheet placed in this room”. In a way associate a pinhole and a digital camera is a pure anachronism. This historical paradox make photography and painting closer by obtaining this very particular rendering of a technically sharp picture with less details, skies and skins that seems to have been painted with a brush.
