Star Product


Emile Loreaux

When we buy, we're supporting the mode of production of the goods we purchase. It's it this moment that we can say 'yea' or 'nay' to the environmental or social impact of a product. Isn't purchasing power also the power of deciding what kind of society we want to live in? The 'hypermarchés' of the Parisian region became my playgrounds. I photographed myself in staged scenes during the opening hours of these stores. I used a burlesque mode to critique the big chain stores, which I consider to be generators of irresponsible attitudes in our society.
