OMALO presents a series of photograms by Grégoire Eloy made during a residency for the Tblisi Photo Festival, in Georgia between 2019 and 2020. The photographer questions time, memory and life in this recluse of the Caucasus, while continuing to propose his vision and to question the image itself.

Alternating photograms and their setting in situation, Grégoire Eloy shakes up our perception of what the image is: each shot leading to a photogram (action of the light of the flash on the photosensitive paper placed in the space) and to a view of the setting in situation (image captured by the camera).

The silver paper is placed in the landscape, at night, by the light of the red headlamp, and is exposed by the light of the camera flash.
Two images of the same moment are then created: the one of the triggering making the scene appear and the photogram itself.
The silver paper is then revealed on the spot, in an improvised night laboratory, the photogram thus becomes an “imprint of the landscape” entirely produced and revealed in situ.

 This book is published within the framework of the Prix Niépce to which The Eyes Publishing is associated since 2019. In 2021, The Prix Niépce was awarded to Grégoire Eloy.
