After Nothing but home (the house as a starting point) and desperate cars (the destiny of cars in the photographer's neighborhood), Sébastien Girard dedicates his third volume Under house arrest to the plight of plants. Entrapped behind gates and bars, these mute prisoners in our houses and gardens continue to follow nature’s call. Their wildness, which we try to tame, is revealed here in its full force. Entangled and injured by metal, they fight back and they display their irresistible desire to roam free.
