Jürgen Nefzger - Nocturnes

In Nocturnes, we near a city plunged into standby, immobilized between periods of urban bustle. With this new series, Jürgen Nefzger provides a journey that explores the hidden side of daily space in the uncertainty and the pleasure of discovery. From one photograph to the next, we follow a solitary path starting from the heights of the volcanoes to move into the city. Following a trail, however, is less important than letting oneself be invaded by a nocturnal atmosphere. We sink gradually into Clermont-Ferrard, which sprawls at the foot of the Puy chain of mountains, on the lookout for the first glow of dawn that will not break.
