The work of Christian McManus is unique. It exceeds photographic job by intervening directly on the support which he uses, the Polaroid, to give the amazing effect of erroneously blurred writings. Mixture of types, result is impressive, on the border of techniques.

Christian McManus is a man of the world, his numerous trips and places of life led it to develop particular artistic feelings. Her writings flow the multitude of colors, silhouettes, energies and cultures that it met in the course of its experiments. They hear voices, shouting of the city and its uninterrupted disorder. Sometimes they receive the loneliness which haunts its cold streets. They feel its potency, its imposing beauty, just like an immoderate architecture, that it is classical or modern. The vibrating, living city, enveloped by the artist of this blurred dimension seems to want to reveal us its unstable, almost indeterminate dimension.

Across streets enlivened by New York, Santiago, Paris, Valparaiso, Bombay, the look of the artist slips more and more architecture towards the daily of the man. So, according to trips, his photographs strive has revealed a common human bottom. Christian McManus wants to make understand to us that every man, whoever he is and where from that he comes, is confronted to a choice. In A barely observable, blurred choice, a choice in its natural state, between conscience and lack of thought.

Every second, in every movement, in every thought, as a mirror of water, the photographs of Christian McManus reflect this always unstable expression of human reality.A personal and private look, a search perms light and wish to want to fix it, it is what fascinates in the job of Christian McManus.
