ROMAIN OSI exhibition Uscita at Maison Europeenne de la Photo Paris

Rolling thousands of kilometers during the night, Romain Osi photographs radiate the blur of neon gas station lights and truckstops that makes the hunger for a shotgun midnight roadtrip grow in your stomach and ache in heart.

A narrow room, sides lined with photos radiating a luminous red-orange glow, crowned by a video of the streaming night highway.

The clever part of this show was the viewfinder of our childhood’s past, this little box of darkness with mini-slides of the exhibited photographs that come to life in your hand as you click through them like the images flicker by you in that long dark drive home.
