With the exhibition UTOPIA, Galerie Springer Berlin is presenting new works by Georges Rousse, an artist with whom the gallery has been collaborating since the start of the 1990s. The ‘physical interventions’ he performs in the spaces portrayed in his photographs continue to fascinate and confuse the observer.Even in the digital age, this fascination lives on. Rousse’s ingenious manipulations using constructions, drawings and panting are more surprising than ever in a world where the boundaries between reality and virtual reality are increasingly blurred. Using colour, light and architectural elements, Rousse transforms the three-dimensionality of the space into a two-dimensional photographic surface. Does reality become vision or vision become reality?

Since then, the camera has never left his side. He left medical school to study photography and printing techniques. After opening his own studio, he dedicated himself to architectural photography.
