“Erwan Frotin’s strange and evocative images renew the photographic genres which his work broaches by questioning their very specificities through his own particular approach to the subjects he portrays.  (…) His corpus of work has become a panorama that attempts to record the beauty and diversity of the natural world, heightened and enhanced by the prism of the photographer’s own fantasies.”(…) Since 2008, Erwan Frotin has adopted an intuitive and protean approach to his work which consists in cataloguing rare natural forms and organisms. Using documentary material as his starting point, Frotin’s work unravels a nebulous, primary and sensorial story. (Artist’s Statement)
