Paris Gutters - [Series]
Photographic image series
Collection - Ron Huebner Archives
In 2002 Huebner received the prestigious ‘Canada Council Paris Studio Award’ during which time he conceptualized an installation project titled Living on a Prayer which consisted of three elements. One of the proposed elements consisted of:
“ ...large photographic images extracted from the gutters, the inside of various Paris street curbs. The perspective seen here is similar to that which might be seen by a small rodent or rat. The viewer is left here with the unusual perspective of looking from the inside out, rather than from the outside in.” RH
While the greater installation concept was never realized and will now forever remain a ‘work-in-progress’, the compilation of documented ‘Paris Gutters’ images represent a comprehensive body of work unto themselves. Included is a selection from the collection of images.
