APACHE PALACE : fragments et projections by Elise Boularan.
I deliberately use a refined vocabulary and a language without any flourish, for images from the everyday life with a degree of abstraction, which erase all references points. This photographic work marked by ambiguity is in the form of fragments, strata, combinations. It’s takes place in research, experiment and questioning.

The sixth edition of Cortona On The Move, international photography festival, will be open to the public from Thursday, July 14th, until Sunday, October 2nd. The festival, which takes place in the historic town centre of Cortona (Arezzo province) and the De Medici Fortress of Girifalco nearby, is curated by artistic director Arianna Rinaldo and organised by Associazione ONTHEMOVE.
The festival motto Fotografia in Viaggio embodies our passion for exploring the language of photography by promoting the work of the very best contemporary exponents in the field, both nationally and internationally. It also expresses our desire to support and encourage the work of emerging young talents as well as our commitment to celebrating the great masters of the art and the re-discovery of historic photographic archives. Our photographic Viaggio signifies a voyage of discovery, of personal progress, of evolution and growth. Each year, through the language of photography, the festival takes you on a voyage of discovery into unexplored worlds and unimagined situations.
