Laetitia Boulud, an artist born in Montreal but raised in Israel, describes her photography as ‘poetic crime scenes’. This theme is most apparent in her collection Things We Leave Behind—photos that leave an eerie sense of intrusion with the viewer, as though overstepping into someone’s personal space after they are no longer around.
According to Boulud, the collection ‘actually started in a conscious way a couple of years ago inside my own house. Things I found in the morning that were left there from the night before suddenly felt like clues. Later, I realized after going over a roll of film, for example, that many things are left behind and what attracts my attention has to do with fictional crime scenes that exist in my mind only, and there my investigation starts’.
Laetitia’s work has been displayed in Tel Aviv, London, Geneva, The Netherlands and Saint Martin. She is currently working on her first solo show in Tel Aviv.
