VARIOUS PERSONAL PROJECTS

Construction site discoveries

These photographs were taken during François LeClair’s visits to various construction sites where he worked.

HUMANOIDS

In 2005, the theme of the annual CAPIC* exhibition was “Humans of All Shapes, the Human Mosaic”.

On this occasion, François LeClair photographed various people in the nude, in the position of Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous Vitruvian Man, and then made a collage of body parts. As François was working at the homes of his subjects, they carried a fragment of their environment with them. To integrate them into the collage, the photographer used distortion, a process that shows that each human being is unique and cannot be blended into one mass. It is impossible to shape a human being; it is inconceivable to mould it to an ideal or an ideology.

THE WEIGHT ON TOP

In 2007, the theme of the annual CAPIC* exhibition was “Les dessous”. François LeClair decided to photograph an obese person from under and called the picture “The Weight On Top”.
