‘The Stride and The Tempo’ starts with a Treasure Hunt. The project relates the story of an imaginary world living within reality, accessible under beautiful conditions. It depicts how seconds of Trance get a young photographer (or should I say Treasure Hunter) to capture the Essence hidden behind an intimate moment thanks to an alchemy of the Whole. Step by step she has to learn her fundamental dual position toward the world : respecting a great distance in order to be able to contemplate the secret beauty (in order to See), or by daring to be at the heart of things to understand them; She has to learn her significant insignificance; The treasures she captures, thanks to being created by a composed Everything, belong to anytime and anywhere; only are they expressing the eternal beautifully violent Danse of Life on a static impression. For a tree leaf could not wander without the spasmodic breath of the wind, the Apex lapses of latency and the gaps of gravity.

Born in France, Lallemang experiments film photography since 2012. ‘The Stride and The Tempo’ is a selection of film photographs shot between 2014 and 2015. She likes to use a simple film camera and a fixed focal lens in a minimalistic approach. My approach of photography is based on a ‘one shot’ photographs with spontaneity and no post-editing on softwares. Thus all my photographs are shown as they appeared once printed. I mainly shoot intimacy and feel more comfortable to hide in order to reveal.
