L’espace infini is a series of photographs recorded by the author in the Park of Versailles reaching to the thought space between the Baroque-shaped park, through romance and the unreachable, beyond the horizon, the magical realism, to the present relationship to the old parks and further to the unknown future, which is concealed by the fog of atmospheric and spiritual origin.
