The end of history - La fin de l´histoire
& collect
"Belief in progress is irresistible. In flattering the eye it blinds us. Standing in the middle of this artificial rowdiness, this excess of civilisation perfectly detached from nature - a nature that appears here as an object for mourning - the viewer loses their footing, falling deeper into an abyss of culture. The dazzled gaze is overpowered. In a futile search for clarity, little by little, it allows itself to be swallowed whole. Man, as part of nature, is no more. He has entered the end of History, a time wherein his putrescent matter vanishes within the inorganic entrails of this surgical topography."

Born in 1979, Vincent J. Stoker is a French photographer.
