L'Indifférence des Étoiles

L'Indifférence des Étoiles (The Indifference of the Stars) is Julien Mauve's first photography book. It is about the quest for meaning and the difficulty to live with the knowledge that we exist. The stars somehow become a shelter for the mind and help us bear with the briefness of human life.

“I’m trying to picture the world, not as it is but as I would like to see it."

Julien Mauve is a photographer based in Paris. He creates ambiguous and enigmatic photography series dealing with interpersonal interactions and the human condition.

His cinematic images seem both timeless and placeless, concentrating more on evoking an emotional reaction than following any distinct linear narrative.

Julien has exhibited his work across Europe and has received numerous prizes and accolades, including a special mention from the prestigious SFR Jeunes Talents in France which enabled him to exhibit his work at the Grand Palais in Paris during Paris Photo 2013. He has also won awards from MAP Toulouse (2013 & 2014) and exhibited his work at the photography festival.
