About The Work
‘Florida’ is a project that enables the viewer to rediscover forgotten places of the collective imaginary. It explores a less stereotypical imagery of Florida: the urban landscapes that punctuate the lives of local residents and architectural relics of the 1970’s. The photographic series focuses on the paradox between the urbanity and emptiness of post-capitalist America. The subjects are rendered raw, not only for their obvious qualities, but because they beg for a second look.
WHAT TYPE OF PAPER IS THE PHOTOGRAPH PRINTED ON?
All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
WHAT IS THE PRINTING PROCESS USED?
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
IS THE IMAGE SIZE THE SAME AS THE PAPER SIZE?
NO! Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum of 0.5 inch white border. This is an artistic decision that belongs to the artist. Margins don’t normally exceed 2-4 inches on each side depending on the final paper size.
LM Chabot is the type of co-dependence you dream of. The perfect fusion of technique and instinct, sensitivity and objectivity, naivety and maturity, facial hair and red lipstick.
Instead of gazing at each other all day round, LM Chabot fix their two pairs of eyes on the world that surrounds them, observing the smallest details, the tiniest cracks, the slightest leaks; uncovering peculiarities, exposing the oddities of life.
Through their lenses, the duo – who works mainly with medium and large format film cameras – cast a critical yet sensitive gaze on the environment and society, through fashion, architectural photo report and coverage. They search for that hair in the soup, the parsley stuck in your teeth, the hemline coming unstitched. They wrap it up in a perfect mise-en-scène, a gift to be contemplated.
Spicing up their couple, LM Chabot have a three-way partnership with La Garçonnière Studio, an eccentric collective of photographers and videographers established in Saint-Henri.
