Nicolas Faure - Portraits / Chantiers
Portraits of the workers on the tramway line in Strasbourg, with texts by Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe and Jean-Luc Nancy.
For the occasion of a public commission for the implantation of a new tramway line in Strasbourg, Nicolas Faure took hundreds of portraits of the workers on site. The enlarged images were temporarily posted on bill boards all along the line in addition to a series of views of the construction site. The project became a sort of portrait-document of the city at work. Two philosophers from Strasbourg, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe and Jean-Luc Nancy, contributed texts to accompany the images.
