Contrary to Laurent Laporte’s usual documentarian sensibilities, “Nothing To Report” represents a decided effort not to tell a story but, rather, focus freely on his aesthetic obsessions with light, shape, composition and ideas of loneliness. However, as the Paris-based photographer reflects, the project became more of an observation in our inability to completely let go:
“Despite setting my goal as “freedom,” once gathered, these images ultimately created a consistency and homogeneity that I didn’t really expect. In a sense, this assembly makes me admit my failure at an attempt to create something completely free. In the end, absolute freedom, in its most fundamental sense, doesn’t really exist. But these images are my attempts to approach it—even if it will always remain just out of reach.”
