Limited edition of 21 copies. In De ma nuit naît ton jour, (From my Night your day is born), (2001) text from Aline Apostolska with a photograph from the French artist Bernard Gast, the purpose was to create a book integrating day and night, light and darkness. The book wooden structure takes the shape of a double frame window, it suggests a stereoscopic photograph. Without light, the image is opaque. It is revealed only while holding the book in front of a light source. The fragmented image of a person drowning, based on film shots, creates a movement, waves of various lengths similar to the ones of the text.%mdash;J. Fournier's website, viewed Sept. 17, 2019.
