Cinématographies is what we could call an "attempt to classify a photographic ensemble". It represents a collection, an archive built from observation. But what about the subject being observed?
Paul-Armand Gette is an entomology enthusiast; it is his interest in natural science that prompted him - as an artist - to cast a scientific eye over Nature (which he studies meticulously) and what constitutes it. Consequently, he undertook the task of photographing young girls in places whose "natural" aspect could be considered as more or less modified. Parks, seaside locations, botanical gardens, bedrooms and living rooms are all used as backdrops for his various studies.
