Le premier homme

Tomasz Fall

2016 - Ongoing

"Le premier homme" is a photographic series belonging to the fictional documentary genre. It is about a mysterious man living as a hermit in nature.
In fact, after spending an entire life working tirelessly trying to survive, constantly under pressure and a few years from retirement, Mr. B. abandoned everything - his family, his friends, his house, his property and his work - to lead a simple and authentic life.
This man, whose name I deliberately don’t mention, crushed by an increasingly inhuman and deleterious system, found refuge far from his fellow men and developed extraordinary abilities there. He is able to control the elements, communicate with animals, transform his body, predict the future and even levitate. He also has superhuman strength and a memory that can’t be beaten.
By refusing to participate in the exploitation of nature and humans, by adopting a humble and responsible attitude, Mr. B. is rising against the excesses of neoliberalism. It’s a sort of David’s fight against Goliath - a highly topical issue - that he embodies in his own way and will lead without compromise when he will feel ready to get back to – what is paradoxically called – civilization.
