Rémi Noël did not start taking pictures at the age of 6 with his grandpa's Rolleiflex. He waited to be 30 to let his will to photograph things invade him and started to capture still lives, in his Parisian flat. He studied advertisement and its language and thus, likes concision. As a photographer, he focuses on telling short stories that he captures faster than a speeding bullet.
Quickly, he left Parisian interiors and began annual expeditions to the American West Coast. There, he revisits in black and wite the archetypes of the American Myth: motels, neon signs, deserts and highways.
In 2013, Rémi created POETRY WANTED, a small publishing house dedicated to photography. His series "Texas" introduces the collection THIS IS NOT A MAP. These maps celebrate the meeting of a photographer and a place, and enable the mind to travel freely from a picture to another, as if they were discovering an unknown land.
It is not a map, but a photographic trip.
