Julien Coquentin masters the art of storytelling. By mixing several disciplines, he plunges us into the heart of his very singular universe. In this series “Tropics”, the artist offers a photo series accompanied by a text and a song (and a soundtrack). At the crossroads between photography and poetry, he brings us into an exotic story tinged with nostalgia with real strength both in images and in words.

  I think at the long journey, the months in the wet of the boat, the Indian ocean from side to side. I think of the child sitting on the bridge, a line of maritime map between Canton and this island, 1930s, end of the world.
