Removing any documentary or illusionist aspect, Patrick Tosani produces images while letting show the process used, and adapt it to the nature of things. The resulting image is only a means to question, analyse and understand the nature and complexity of the world around us. The first braille portrait I am showing to you belongs to a series of photographic portraits fuzzy, projected on the Braille pages. Combining two senses, touch (writing for the blind) and the view (through the photographic representation), he plays on their cancellation: Braille page is only an image and loses its haptic character, the representation - a portrait supposed to be recognizable - is blurred, losing its first identification function. The blind cannot decipher the Braille without relief and the light spectator is unable to read the code, blind turn before this image. The paradox raised by the artist through this photograph calls into question the ability of technology to capture and tell the real, revealing its limitations. If man ever invented tools to better communicate, share, it also grows proportionally filters through which it represents the world, failing to perceive it as it is. Thus photographing what can be seen, giving touch that cannot be; the artist captures the image in its most simple expression, but also the most suggestive.
