The oeuvre of Laurent Montaron is suffused with the contemporary history of the media. From the mechanical techniques of representation of the late nineteenth century through to today's different forms, the media have always given rise to irrational beliefs. Photography changed the perception of space, but with the recording and reproduction of image, sound and voices, time itself seems to have changed. Through his investigations of the tools that shape our representations Montaron lays bare the paradoxes that accompany our awareness of modernity.
