The night cracks under our fingers - set made between 2011 and 2018, monograph published by Loco in 2019.
The night cracks under our fingers takes up several years of Sarah Ritter's photography.
This first monograph by the photographer is accompanied by an unpublished play by Christophe Fiat composed from the photographs in the book.
Sarah Ritter does not work by anticipation, but by "occasions", surveying various terrains, without knowing precisely in advance what she is looking for. These occasions allow her to accumulate a certain number of images which, little by little, find their place in her work and are articulated together. She is looking for a tipping point between the visible, what is shown in the image, and what is not seen. At the heart of this blind intention, the montage of images between them becomes like a choir, an affirmed equivocity.
