> Perceptions of China <

Despite the rich history of the country over the centuries and the remarkable progress and contributions made to the world, it appeared to me that the majority of people's lifestyle in the Republic of China has not changed much from the Dynastic period. Intemporality seems to be, in some sense, the Chinese people way of life with the incongruity it implies when we look at this leading and growing country from an economic point of view. With these photographs, I want to show my perception of the everyday life of Chinese people in large cities. The monochrome tone is an assumed choice to focus on the essence of each scenes. Photographs taken in Sichuan and Anhui provinces. R. Dejarnac (c) 2018.

> Nipponshi-dori <

Nipponshi-dori represents the imaginary street in Japan where these authentic photographs were taken. This neologism was created to establish a unity in space for all those images and could be translated as "the street of a Japanese city". My photographs represent an open window on a different world. Everybody can interpret them differently and can travel his own way. R. Dejarnac (c) 2016-2018.

> Nihonjin <

Nihonjin: Japanese people native to Japan. In this series of stolen street portraits, I wanted to capture the face of Nihonjin in nowadays Japan. The young, the old, students, workers, clerks or even the emblematic geishas. Each person is in his own environment, which I tried to disturb as less as possible. One can see that even now the duality Tradition/Modernity is omnipresent in Japan. These photographs represent my testimony of Nihonjin from the XXI century. R. Dejarnac (c) 2014-2018.

> People

People: humans making up a group or assembly or linked by a common interest. Portraits of people in a studio, stolen portraits in the streets or catching a specific moment of one - or a group of - person(s) is what I want to show here. Behind each photograph of this series, there is a story. I love meeting with people, discussing, sharing experiences, listening to stories and anectodes... or just observing them. The main reward in these encounters is a learning process, enriching my knowledge. Everybody has something to say, to show, to teach... one just needs to listen and to watch. (series in progress) R.
