CERN Diptychs | Frédéric Delangle

April 13, 2010

Delangle is a French photographer that has studied photography at the department of the University of Paris between 1989 and 1994, then he began working as a photographer for the student newspaper, and since then has worked as a freelance photographer, focusing on landscapes and architectural photography. Here we have talked about the magnificent CERN building and now, we just discovered this fantastic photographic work, so here they are:

Frédéric comments at his web-site:

CERN is a series produced between June 2007 and June 2008 on the site of CERN (European Centre for Nuclear Research) near Geneva on the border between France and Switzerland. The diptychs are made up of an image to 100 meters underground in the particle accelerator and an image produced on the surface after traveling 27 km from the ring to the surface.

It is amazing to see and compare the relationship between the surface and the underground construction, sometimes seems related and sometimes you can’t even imagine, looking at a bucolic landscape, that there’s one of the most powerful buildings in the world down there… as in the next image:
