Alone, in silence is a project for my brother Guillaume, who died in an accident when he was 22. The death of an elderly person is painful, the death of a younger one is unbearable. Alone, I drove across Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana and Idaho. In the silence and vast emptiness of those landscapes, I saw manifestations of the sadness and solitude I feel inside. It is easier to be alone and sad under the protection of darkness, so I turn the photos from day to night in the darkroom. The night acts as a space and a state of mind.
