‘Photographic Paintings’ is Lea Banchereau's second solo show and was on view at Soho Photo Gallery in May 2024.

'Photographic Paintings' transforms ordinary details that might go unnoticed into abstract compositions. The aim is to make each subject so unfamiliar that its original context in the photograph becomes unrecognizable. New York, in particular, is full of construction sites featuring patched-up walls, stained concrete, and intriguing lines on the ground that often escape notice. By merging elements of painting and photography, the intention is for each image to resemble a distinct abstract painting.


‘Photographic Paintings’ was digitally printed on handmade recycled cotton paper and shot on 

black and white 35mm film.
