The Lukumí is a hybrid language, a mixture of Spanish and Yoruba that has emerged in the Yoruba community of Cuba. As the liturgical language of Santería, the Lukumí is mainly used by the Yoruba community during ceremonies. This dictionary is an editorial work that presents itself as a practical and useful answer to the problem of knowledge transmission on an island where communism and clandestinity, especially within Afro-cuban populations, still dominate life and culture. This dictionary is a major visual and content update from the last 1970 version.
Through this book entitled Tidal Horizon, the photographer and graphic designer Matthieu LITT shows a selection of pictures taken during his recent artist residency in Norway. At the core of this work, the perpetual motion of the universal tidal phenomenon brings the photograph to question himself about the dialogue between Man and Nature and immerses himself in a broader reflection around the notion of “Sublime”.

Particles is a book about the process of creation and the appearance of the photographic image. Particles is made of cuts and close-ups of common situations, simultaneous movements between exposure and exclusion. I intend to explore how dust can be used to investigate the photographic gesture or even can produce other images.
