Show Full Text

Invasions of Charles Pétillon invade various areas ranging from Calais and Dover beaches to the streets of Shanghai or to the black slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily. His white clouds highlight environments they stress the features. Charles Pétillon addresses the disappearance, evokes memories, and questions the actions of man over nature and himself. These photographic prints of great elegance carry in them a purpose which is universal and playful with the refined aesthetic of the balloons.
