In this publication we aim to distance ourselves from the basic relationship existing between music and photography, avoiding pictures of gigs, bands or instruments. We wish to present pictures that come out of the direct collaboration between noise and photography, taken instinctively and randomly. Pictures of places, moments or people where the notion of noise is perceptible instantly. Bruit de fond questions our senses and our perception. This book questions the notion of photography by proposing to educate one to listening to pictures and looking at noise.
