Classically trained Édouard Trémeau’s work is masterfully executed using dramatic lights and shadows. He took part in various collectives that denounced forms of political oppression and inequalities, traces of which can be found in his work, exuding anguish, solitude, confinement and ruin. In this work, the print is akin to a diptych with a man turned away, coupled with the touristic depiction of Baalbeck, Lebanon. The editioned print is titled “Sur le passé: la paix” (On the pass: peace) while in a retrospective exhibition publication, the same edition is called “Liban: paix retrouvee” (Lebanon: Peace Found).
