The series Here begins the sky follows the footsteps of La Suite d´Arles, produced in 2003 on the roofs of remarkable buildings in the city of Arles.
The shootings take place on the sites of the Paris Observatory and Meudon, Deauville, some rooftops around the Opera de Paris, Saint-Germain-en-Laye Castle and Chambord Castle.
From the rooftops, the architecture offers exceptional views of its surroundings on the ground, and from up there the limit with celestial space is perceptible.
The topography of the places and their history lead me to visions that gradually become established in scenes where dancing characters and flying objects take place.
In this series have accompanied me Dürer, Kubrick, Spilliaert and Poe, with their melancholy and their mystery.

As for the title Here begins the sky, it plays with that of the series Where does the sky begin? (1995-1996), answer - a nod to this question asked twenty years earlier.
