Marie Desplechin, successful French author with over 70 books. She has recently written a text for Signatures photography house while 45 photographers have replied to it through images. In her book La Photo « The photo -ed », she starts off from a summer memory, under a tree in Normandy which soon intertwines into six portraits of men and women. Unique experiences forming a collective narrative. It’s this reverse device that Signatures wished to create and asking Marie Desplechin to write a text from which the photographs will take on a voice of their own.
