Jean-Christophe Béchet
Accidents. Une balade à travers les procédés photographiques

Past: January 16 → March 15, 2014

Jean-Christophe Bechet’s Accidents are prints coming from all his different works, accidental pictures, technical mistakes, faulty exposures… All of these interesting failures he decided not to throw away, these moments when the photographer has no control on his work anymore, when chance and chemistry play their part. Jean-Christophe Bechet’s work is closely related to analog photography, using many photographic processes.

“The accidents which are important to me are those that have a certain fictional depth. They stretch time, creating the sensation of a tracking shot. The image is no longer detached from what is out of the frame. The leak of light fixes the images in another documentary dimension. Here, the accident reveals a specifically photographic blend of narrative and documents, poetry and the truth of the moment.

The accident thwarts any sense of security, repetition, or control. And it is particularly necessary in real-life photography."

Jean-Christophe Béchet, 2012
