[I]ntimist and enigmatic, Nicolas Comment’s photographs do not stick to reality: no description, anecdote or story.
These sensitive and pensive images, vague moments of vacancy and latency, privilege the doubt and the uncertainty and create purely mental spaces fed by personal myths and by literary, film and musical references. After Fading, “an attempt to reconstruct a sentimental map of Prague” begun with Anne-Lise Broyer, Est-ce l’Est? (Berliner Romanze) offers, under the shape of a photographic and musical ballad, a poetic and subjective portrait of ex-Berlin Est haunted by the spectre of the Wall and David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed’s figures.
