Edith Roux


Contemporary European Photography


“For several years now Edith Roux (France) has been photographing the increasing uniformity of the periphery of large cities in the European Union. Everywhere the same business estates, similar office complexes and uniform shopping malls are rising, invariably bordered by the same undeveloped terrain. In order to emphasize the uniformity of her subjects, Roux always selects the same camera angle and with the aid of a computer she colours all the skies in her photographs an identical blue.” (more examples of “Euroland” here; samples of another series called “Underscape” here)
