Yann Pocreau’s research has been focused on the narrative contributions suggested by light when it is staged in specific places. In his most recent projects, he puts forward traces of light and it’s presence as a subject. Though he works mostly with photography, Pocreau has experimented with other media, such as installation, animation, and sculpture, as he developed a series of interventions and works around artificial light, its materiality and its essential contribution to the artist’s photographic thought.
