Strangers in the Light
Lens Culture... Strangers in the Light - photographs by Catherine Balet. "...Strangers in the Light explores the dominance of media screens in contemporary life, from a connected family gathering to a online confessional. Landscapes or interiors, her images also refer to the narcissistic self-awareness expressed on social networks and the new approach to quick, light mobile photography that affects our visual culture. All scenes are lit exclusively with the technological devices generating a mysterious beauty. Balet casts a fascinated, sometimes ironic, eye on the intricate relationship between man and technology, providing a captivating portrait of our society that hovers between fictional and documentary."
