Courts 14 is a rich and detailed urban landscape from Contemporary French photographer Franck Bohbot. Bohbot focuses his artistic attention on public spaces and urban landscapes. Rooted in his fascination with cinematographic iconography, his work looks at the relationship between the individual and the architecture around us. His main subjects are public spaces such as swimming pools, basketball courts, libraries and cinemas – but all empty, abandoned or deserted of the people that give life to these places.
Using long exposures, natural and fluorescent light, the images take on a richness of colour and detail which contrast with the sense of melancholy which permeate the images. These deserted spaces carrying the ghostly traces of abandoned social landmarks are immortalized through the power of their architecture and the poetry of their everyday uses.
