Fashion Victims

[ Aix en Provence | 1st August 2005 ]


The quarter of Aix located between the Cour Mirabeau and the Law Court is home to a good many boutiques, where the most important clothing brands are on show in the shop windows...

It is the beginning of August, the city is finely tuned to provide for its touristic vocation. Shopping frenzy rules: it is late afternoon, closing time approaches, and it is the period of the summer sales, the opportunity for the biggest discounts. Tourists and inhabitants scurry through the streets on a quest for the best deal, manoeuvring their bulky bags, full of merchandise. This photographic work uses the "gutworks" technique.
