Greetings From Mars
This project is about space exploration but it’s also about our behaviour in front of landscapes and how we create pictures that will share our personal story with the world. In every spot Julien Mauve stopped, he imitated stereotypical tourist poses. It’s interesting to observe the way we act in front of the camera, how we include ourselves in the landscapes, how those landscapes trigger the desire to affirm our presence. With Internet available everywhere, there is no “being-far-away” anymore. So we might ask ourselves, do we travel to discover new places, or do we travel to take pictures of ourselves to prove that we exist?
