Stéphane Charpentier’s photographs manifest conflicted inner worlds; they haunt with the essence of the present time. “The Core,” continues his never-ending analog series. Scattered within a worn scientific text, the photographs make a poetic parallel between the duality of human souls and nuclear fission. At the heart of a being or the deep center of an atom, energies coalesce, diffuse, or ignite. “The Core” shows visions of characters trapped in an alienating and dystopian environment, and gives the perception that human activity has overpassed a forbidden or dangerous border.
