"He arrives unexpectedly with his dog, his Volvo station wagon and his camera:
Yann Stofer always seems to land on a planet that is not his own.
An unusual, sometimes painful position, which allows him to approach the world the wrong way.
The gap and the sense of the absurd thus work to the full in his images:
Latex gloves lost over a plate of French fries, swordfish folded over a scooter...
with unknown registration, impossible patterns of a shirt responding to a fir forest.
He hits the nail on the head every time, pinning the flawed detail - the dissonant element - with an eternally new eye."
