Cordier has described his works as a mutation, as hybrid and marginal - fake photographs of an imaginary, improbable and inaccessible world. Writing to Cordier in 1974, the photographer Brassaï exclaimed : “ The result of your process is diabolical - and very beautiful. Whatever you do, don’t divulge it ! ”
