The Nowhere series is above all an urban story. An underground story which lets emptiness
settle gradually between men. These parkings become silent witnesses of this strange
urbanity. They represent our privacy part and our inability to integrate the city. They
are a transit place where lives cross and uncross.Nowhere is also a story of solitude. Our
eye gets lost in this disturbing place.Emptiness appeals emptiness as an unvoiced and deep
breath. These underground parkings become the only witness of our passage.
At night, these underground places empty any human form...

While travelling through vast desertic places, Xavier Blondeau has been questionning the place of individuals in their environment.Since 2009 and apart from his activity as a Senior lecturer, her has focused his photographic work on the individual. It is presented and structured in photographic series and aims at addressing that question very closely. Since 2011, he has been very active and present in many exhibitions. His work is about intimacy being revealed as his various photographic series unfold.
