On may 3rd 1836, the person by the name of D.Julien engraved his name on the banks of the
Labyrinth canyon, along the Green river in the south of Utah. With this maiden action, he gave the
first testimony of a white men in this distant zone and at the same time, he opened the way for other
signatures. 173 years later, the artist is looking for this double. This photograph tells us this experience,
linked with identity, time lapse and the importance of trace.
