Well, this is quite an autobiographical picture: It was taken in late 2010, in Strasbourg, France. This is the Hospital Civil (Civil Hospital). Although I visit this town very often, I first saw this building one year ago as I was going through medical treatment; By this time, I was very nervous and I tried to depict this in my work: I don't make a photography of what I see, but a photography of what I feel. When entering this complex this is what you see in front of you...So I told myself: "well this is where I'm going, let's go..." And I looked at this building very carefully...really like its architecture, very imposing....But there was something amazing about that....Because I've been operated somewhere else, near that building in a smaller place: I went the wrong way...and I was a bit disappointed.
