Stéphane Gizard is a French photographer, living and working in Paris.
In 2020, his third opus was released: “We Removed your post ..” A warning message regarding the rise in extremes and the formatting that groups like Instagram are trying to impose. An ode to the paper book and freedom of expression.
Where is Charlie, where are my peers, my creators of freedom and creativity?
The book is gone, the pixel won. Each pixel spies on, rules, impoverishes our lives.
Everything is politically correct. Boredom.
Big Brother smiles. My neighbor of networks denounces me. I am banished, punished
like a child who has made a mistake. The stupidity precisely. The brain drained by a daily
force- feeding of content formatted by ideological groups that take advantage
of the speed of propagation of information and disinformation.
The thumbs-up law has won. The body is not a source of happiness, the latest trendy
sneakers, yes. Be happy with it and accept. Big Bro wants it. He is right.
So what ? Normal human relationships to reassure? No ! Hide your body! A breast?
How awful ! A penis? Worse! Daily violence. And do not try to seduce,
too dangerous these days. Loneliness and guilt. Uncertainty of feelings.
Benito, Adolph, Joseph… If you had known Big Brother I would not be here, nor this book…
