This Maxence Dedry Series is Alienating

Maxence Dedry is a Liege, Belgium-based photographer who is no stranger to themes of alienation, judging by his recent series titled 'Where am I?' Existential themes of alienation, the inherent solitude of the human condition and pervasive irrelevance are quite abstract concepts, but this photographer has managed to evoke such themes without mentioning a single word.

The series traces various scenes devoid of people, save for one. A single shot portrays a man in red enveloped by darkness. One almost expects him to transform into a giant beetle in the next frame, but Dedry is too original for that. Indeed, instead of harping on a single color scheme, he explores various contrasting colors while maintaining coherence through an emphasis on darkness and ambiguity.
