Homicide, détenu vs détenu


Homicide, détenu vs détenu


Taken by a police officer in 1997, forty-four crime scene photos are displayed on tables. A prisoner murders his fellow inmate in their shared cell. The space being circumscribed, the images scrutinize the cell and reveal us all the details of life in detention as well as the traces of the crime scene. Police photographs rest in boxes in the archives of Quebec City’s Courthouse where we can find, haphazardly, the court exhibits of cases closed. These photographs enter in the public domain when the cases have been judged. Executed in accordance with a very strict procedure and rules, one would like to believe that forensic photography produces cold pictures, deprived of feelings, however one still finds horror there.
