A tree draws its strength from the earth through its roots. Its trunk branches into branches fed by a common sap. Its foliage never ceases to grow and grow back nourished by light. Photographer Denis Felix is a tree, his work a forest. It is the tree that reveals the forest.

While his work may seem eclectic at first glance, it is not so, his transcontinental canopy is rooted in the notion of fragment. Through his objective, Denis Felix subdivides the raw material and engraves it on the leaf.

Fragments of ruins, fragments of humanity, fragments of skin, fragments of fingerprints, fragments of truth, Denis Felix is a tireless researcher of fragments of the luminous discourse.

Un arbre puise sa force dans la terre à travers ses racines. Son tronc se ramifie en branches alimentées par une sève commune. Son feuillage ne cesse de croître et repousser nourri de lumière. Le photographe Denis Felix est un arbre, son œuvre une forêt. Il est l’arbre qui révèle la forêt.

Si son travail peut paraître de prime abord éclectique, il n’en est rien, sa canopée transcontinentale plonge ses racines dans la notion de fragment. A travers son objectif, Denis Felix lotit la matière et la grave sur la feuille.

Fragments de ruines, fragments d’humanité, fragments de peau, fragments d’empreintes, fragments de vérité, Denis Felix est un infatigable chercheur de fragments du discours lumineux.
