Guillaume Amat, <i>Open Fields</i>
The central idea of the serie Open Fields, started in 2013, is the representation of the French landscape and the notion of his capture with a mirror measuring 80x120 cm placed in situ.
The mirror comes reconstructing the landscape with the off- field facing him and creating a double reading. In the construction of his pictures, Guillaume Amat is interested in creating a new perspective within the context of the image, by blurring the boundaries between the real and fiction, reality and invention. The superposing of shots and the fragmentation of spaces create new perceptions, by playing with the perspectives and the picture frame of the host site.

Born in 1980 and based in Paris Guillaume Amat is dedicated to long-term projects which produce photographic narratives. Aiming to adapt the camera to the subject and the way in which to narrate a story by using different types of cameras, formats and sensible surfaces. With his images he build stories which navigate between documentary and poetry. In 2007 he joined Millennium Images Ltd (UK) and in 2008 Signatures-photographies agency (FR).
