Exhibition: Photographs by Rodolphe A. Reiss - The Scene Of The Crime - Musée de l'Elysée

From the Musée de l'Elysée, "As the investigators' artificial memory, the photographs were taken in a very formal style to document crime scenes and clues discovered as unemotionally as possible. They are all associated with Reiss's teaching or expert evaluations. They allow us to see unusual sites and environments and, paradoxically, are often formally very abstract."
"The boundary between reality and the imaginary remains unbroken here. Situated between the acts and their representation, these photographs are filled with unusual emotion due to the dramatic circumstances which they retrace."
