Brocantes are French flea markets and seem to be the French national pastime on weekends.
Brocantes are peculiar places, you could see them as the edge of our consumer society. Many of the items sold there are too bad for the store but too good for the dump.
Their visitors are a motley collection of people. Some driven by their economic situation, the extra income is very important to their daily needs. But you will also find collectors who do not want to participate in the consumer society, out of personal conviction.
My series goes along various Brocantes in the North of France, Nord Pas de Calais 59.
I intend to transform this series of images into a photobook.
This year I will be buying second hand stuff at the Brocntes and transform tem into still-life images.
I am already talking to book publishers and designers showing them my sketch dummy shown in the video above.
The pre-subscription list... What does it mean?
If you would like to be kept updated with news & updates about the Brocantes project and the book design process you can
leave your details below in the form. This pre-subscription list will bring me a step closer of making the book
The book will be made in a limited edition, the first 100 copies will numbered and signed.
As ‘early-bird fans’ this will secure you a high place on the pre-subscription list and ensure you get a low
number of the 100 signed editions.
Filling in the pre-subscription list does not mean that you have to commit to anything, you can always unsubscribe.
