‘‘During my stay in Brazil, photography quickly took an important place. I started to apply a method to my shots with a square frame, which gradually gave life to a body of images... My goal with Oscar was to report the multiple universes of this country and São Paulo in particular. Thus, the graphic frames take up the rhythms of Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic contemporary architecture and the colors are those of the city that I have collected.
In the end, Oscar is a work of research between form, color and material to transcribe the vitality so characteristic of a country which fascinates me’’.
A young graduate from Ecole Camondo in Paris, Joy de L’Hermite recounts the sources of inspiration for this new collection which is a first collaboration with Bernardaud.
