Pieces of Love Shot by Guillaume de Sardes

Guillaume de Sardes brings a sequence of photographs that contradict themselves with two forces of contrary intensity in the topic of love.

Also a French writer, historian, and curator, Sardes approaches love as an oxymoron -- through the intimacy in his approach, his subjects, though close in proximity, hold certain coldness and inhibition in their eyes.

Critic Patrick Mauriès describes the kind of love found in the series "Fragments of a Love Story" rather fleeting, yet memorable. A story of a love filled with accuracy as well as falsities. The passage of time and the sudden outburst of desire, both depicted.

Fragments of a Love Story at the House of European Photography in Paris, starting March 7 and running through May 20.
