This Must Be The Place: David Boeno’s Le Site
David Boeno Alcibiade. 132. d. 1988.

Le Site is the labyrinthine digital encyclopedia of French photographer and self-titled ‘neoplatonic copyist’ David Boeno, which was exhibited for the first time at the Dijon Consortium in 1998. It is an immense database of ancient texts in Greek, Latin, Hebrew and Arabic, ordered according to an incredible range of alphabetic and thematic categories. It is a wonderful and bewildering place to explore and to get lost in (make sure you have a few hours to spare!). Click on any of the images below for some possible ways to get started. Happy travels!
