Collages and photos
By this "portrait" of an old man, I am seized with an indescribable melancholy. No doubt this is because I saw an old picture of myself, taken by Philippe many years ago. I wrote: "Is this really me?" because it is difficult to identify with a young man when one is 75 years old. So in this picture, there is this weary old man (which I am hopefully not) or one whose origins are charged with a painful history form a black patch over his face. This is a kind of self-portrait that anticipates my future appearance, even if I cannot recognize myself either, except for what is the weight of the legacy passed.
