Jean Claracq uses his work to deal with issues of loneliness in the social media era, depicting scenes of everyday life featuring isolated individuals against broad infrastructures as an evocation of alienation. His subjects often straddle the departure from adolescence and adulthood, filled with both melancholy and an openness to the future that awaits them.
