Gallery OUT of PLACE is pleased to present French photographer Patrick Taberna.
The exhibition features approximately 20 works selected from a vast selection of prints from his past and latest work.

According to a predecessor,
'The memory of an event that probably only happens once in your life is mixed up in countless mundane and boring images that you don't look back on as a usual occurrence.'

Well, Patrick started taking photographs in his early twenties while continuing to travel, but in his early thirties he married Sylvie, after which he turned his lens mainly to his family and began presenting intimacy as a central subject.
However, he has never fallen into subjective family photography, but always casts an objective eye on his wife and children, maintaining a fine sense of balance between snapshots and making photographs. In recent years, his style has become more relaxed, light-hearted and meaningful.

The fascination of his photographs lies in the fact that they have an even more magical effect on the viewer.
Although the images in Patrick's photographs are supposed to be his own personal events and memories, somehow the viewer is transported to a moment in the viewer's own past, inspired by the photographer's memories (the images).
As if replacing Patrick's gaze, the viewer himself relives the sweet and sour past. In this way, Patrick's photographs may indeed have the so-called [Proust effect] (i.e. the power to evoke involuntary memories in people).

It would be interesting to see how Patrick captures landscapes and families in his viewfinder, and at what moment his finger presses the shutter.
He must surely be boasting, "It's the same as always.".  text by Yoshinori NOMURA(Gallery OUT of PLACE) Sep.2023
