Cartographies is a series of photographs shot in the streets of New York. Its focus lies in reducing visual information to a minimum: creases, sweat stains or even dirt, are the only hints one can see. They tell us about an employee’s day at the desk, a commuter’s routine on the subway or a workman’s shift. These few traces, along the folds of the different clothing, become impressions of everyday lives, eventually cartographies of everyone’s journeys.
