At just 20 years old, Paris based artist Alban Grosdider has created an amazing body of photographic work that touches upon a dark subject manner. The series, Drowning, is a project that confronts the feeling of submersion that one feels living in a big city.
The first portrait was presented on the borders of the river Seine in January 2012 and the second part of the series was showcased for an afternoon along the canal Saint Martin in July 2012.
Grosdidier explains on his website “Drowning is a project that talks about the feeling of submersion that one can have by living in a big city.” The second series he showcased on a rainy day along the canal Saint Martin in July. He ‘would physical imprint it’s effects on the photographs, reflecting its moral consequences on people living in rainy cities’, he explains.
