After a first tribute exhibition organized by his friends and fellow physicists on the Monod campus of the ENS de Lyon in October 2016, Maxime Clusel's work is presented for the first time in a contemporary art gallery.

In 2007, his work as a researcher in theoretical physics led him to move to New York. Carried by the energy of the Big Apple, he walked through the city, explored its neighbourhoods, lived with real New Yorkers and used his camera to capture all of them.

From 2007 to 2010, he attended the School of the International Center for Photography in New York City. The images presented in this exhibition were mainly taken during this period. Maxime Clusel's sensitive view of the city's architecture offers a series of images in which light sculpts a city with floating contours.

Maxime Clusel was a CNRS researcher in theoretical physics, a former student of the École normale supérieure de Lyon.
