juried competition winners
selected by Holly Harrison, LACMA

First place winner:

Xavier Blondeau

"Présence Obscure" is a search in which Xavier Blondeau currently pursues with great vigor and mastery. There are places or situations in which, despite the absence of any human entity, there is a presence beyond the objects captured by photography. This "dark" presence resonates as the afterglow of the recent past and reveals a different dimension requiring a human footprint to exist. In his work the darkness of the night and the infant early morning mist smuggle us to another ghostly plane. In the series "Présence Obscure" Blondeau reveals a sublime and evanescent alternate world that quietly exists with persistence in balance with the noise and struggle of daily life.
