The NC-NCa series, a work realized by Emmanuel Pinard on the Montesson Plain between 1995 and 1998, has his place in the continuity of his work on peripheral landcapes...
...the Montesson Plain, a single and specific area, is photographed in black and white and on overcast days.
...to give form to the formless, to photograph the loosely defined spaces of an apparently endless and orderless urban periphery absent any identifiable determinism. Emmanuel Pinard's approach to this nebulous reality is even more extreme given the fact that he focuses on abandoned and empty spaces which by their very nature lie outside the realm of the easily representable. Through this work on the sedimentation of time and traces, Emmanuel Pinard enables us to decipher the reality of a place in all its geographical, social, technical, historical and esthetic complexity.
