In 2011, Professor Michel Poivert, director of the department of Art History at Paris Sorbonne University, described Segretier’s work as “combining both the present that echoes his living environments and a past which conjure up the entire world of the artist’s childhood, Laurent Segretier perhaps gives the contemporary image a more traditional function than is unexpected in digital imaging.”
“I always been interested in how to offer a photographic vision without necessarily capture things from the outside world. This questioning about the images’ belonging determined my artistic approach in terms of media choices : I decided to take advantage of the overabundance of images today, through an obsessive visual investigation, I collect, assemble and classify found images from blogs, Tumblrs, and professional websites. Then, I re-photograph manually again and again the selected images by displaying them on my modified computer screen". The output becomes the input, by this way, the images obtained acquire a kind of thick and tangible substance.
