An Open Love Declaration
In his new book and exhibition Je T’aime - Je T’aime Léo Berne travels through his memory, from dawn to dusk and back.
Leo Berne’s Je T’aime - Je T’aime, “I Love You, I Love You”, carries the viewer through the travels, friendships, random meetings and intimate relationships the photographer and director experienced during the last 10 years of his life. The book, a collection of fleeting moments, can be flipped through from cover to cover in both directions, as the editing condenses his journey through time into a single day.
The photographer talks about feeling like a tourist as he captures or recreates scenes inspired by moments of his own life. The title is inspired by Alain Resnais’ eponymous film where a man’s time travel journey goes wrong, and he gets trapped into his own memories.
