Doing a photo documentary in Bushwick was interesting as in 5 years, it switched from a dangerous to a famous artistic place that even artists can not afford anymore. My goal was to take a picture of this neighborhood; how it is in 2017, imbue the life and atmosphere of it and transmit this to the viewer using my own lexicon.
Eloi Du Bois, raised in France living in Austin, TX, started making art by producing short films, one, “Bohem, Bohem…” being shown at Cannes Short Film Corner in 2014. In parallel of this formative activity, he worked on photography which became a passion that lead him to participate in workshops at Eyes in Progress; the first one about portraiture with Richard Dumas in 2012 and this last one about photography visual story telling with Ed Kashi. Humans are an enigma, mysterious and unique. What Eloi likes in photography is capturing the unexpected, how Humans exteriorize their personality, how do their personality influence where they live, and the story that we can then develop from this.
