Photobook by Rebecca Topakian
Published by Classe Moyenne Editions
In the series “Infra-”, I’m using a digital transformed camera — the low-pass filter on the sensor has been removed so the camera is sensible to infrared. In the complete night of dancing parties, I enlighten my subjects by using an infrared led panel, invisible to the human eye but visible to the camera, allowing me to act discreetly. The subjects then reveal themselves in moments of abandonment, far from any staging, and offer the viewer portraits of selflessness — “non-portraits”.
