Gaillard's archeological approach toward nature and architecture can be noted in his 'Geographical Analogies'. In these wooden boxes, he has carefully arranged nine polaroids taken in various locations. The juxtapositions draw analogies, for instance, between natural sites in Mexico and housing projects in the Bronx, be it for their visual correspondences or their geological placement, highlighting in each photo the same sense of fragility.
