Alvéoles Vol.1 & Vol.2 par Jean-Pierre Attal

Between art and social archeology, the Parisian photographer Jean-Pierre Attal observes contemporary architecture offices. Behind the glass facades, as in a hive, life unfolds, teeming, countless, anonymous.

In this series, Jean-Pierre Attal says:

"The architecture of the current offices has evolved in the direction of greater transparency, I decided in 2007 to explore again this ground favorable to the extension of my work of social archeology of the urban stratum. The format captures the reality of individuals who are closely linked to contemporary architecture.They explore the world of tertiary work through the glazed openings of contemporary office towers.It is in a very close proximity that they show these stacks of saturated floors of employees, revealing the frenetic activity of a beehive in full effervescence.The open spaces then become totally accessible and reveal the details of a standardized universe which usually escape us.In the architectural chaos, it is finally the recurrence and the haunting repetition that lead to the fainting of beings under "X".
