Radiance is a work on the recording of colour in photography, based on the assumption that the photographer has only a limited control over the colours he records and reproduces photographically due to the very nature of the medium. The Radiance#5 lenticular print is a study that aims to create a form of archive of light and by extension of the world of photography. To photograph these unique colours, the artist recorded the variations in colour during sunrise and sunset. Through the creation of a digital artefact constructed according to the photographic composition of the landscape (proportions and colours), the aim is to generate a universal landscape, reduced to its simplest composition: a horizon line delimiting the sky and the earth. These images are the archive of purely photographic colours, colours that exist nowhere else but on the surface of light-sensitive film, colours as unique as those that our eyes, all different from each other, perceive.

Mustapha Azeroual
A scientist by training, his work is based on observation and experimentation experimentation, confronting the historical techniques of shooting and printing to the contemporary with the contemporary issues of photography. Questioning the tools the process of appearance and the supports, the artist privileges above all the point of view of the spectator.
