    Paolo Pellegrin – Des oiseaux

    A member of the Magnum agency, Paolo Pellegrin is one of the great photojournalists of his generation. The visual power of his images bears witness to the political, economic and ecological upheavals of the world. His inquisitive mind leads him to put his lens on subjects that are sometimes more contemplative, where nature holds a major place. Thus, during a stay in Japan, the photographer, who went to attend the famous sakura zensen or cherry blossom, is seized by the majesty of a colony of eagles. In Kyoto, the Shimogamo temple, located in the delta of the Kamo-Gawa river, stands in the heart of the Tadasu no Mori forest, or "forest of truth". This Shinto shrine, dating back to the 7th century, is nestled in the middle of a primary forest populated by eagles. Hovering above the visitors, emerging from the foliage with their wings spread, the eagles fly close to the photographer. Their dazzling speed is captured in tight framing: the birds seem to jump out of the frame or fly out of it at full speed. The choreographies follow one another: as a soloist, in duet or in group, these fascinating birds of prey seem to glide through space. Standing out against saturated black and white skies, Pellegrin's eagles stare at us, challenge us, surprise us. Their majesty forces the admiration: they glide, sketch many acrobatics. Their remiges become fingers, their wings become capes. Defying the laws of gravity, immersed in the depths of the undergrowth, Pellegrin's birds invite us to enter a mysterious and ghostly world, where only the animal presence reigns.

    Terri Weifenbach – Cloud Physics

    What perceptions do we have of our environment, what is our relationship to the sensitive world? How to capture the elusive in photography? For this new series, Terri Weifenbach is interested in living things, nature, water, air, light, fire, and questions the ability of photography to capture the evanescence of natural and sensitive phenomena. Starting from the study of scientific instruments that measure with great precision meteorological events such as cloud formation, the American photographer invites us to explore the changing, metaphorical character of these impalpable events with all the poetry and finesse that characterize her work. An exploration of the sensitive in contact with the elements During a residency at one of the scientific observation sites of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Research Facility (ARM), dedicated to the study of atmospheric phenomena, Terri Weifenbach photographed measuring instruments - installed on a vast plain in Oklahoma - like ready-made. Twilight radiometers, ceilometers, sunphotometers and rain gauges are captured as sentinels recording climate change. Faced with the photographic protocol of these scientific tools, the American photographer deploys an immersive visual corpus: from the salt marshes of St. Catherines Island to the deep valleys of Montana, from the immemorial parks of Nara, Japan, to the Jardin des plantes of the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris, Terri Weifenbach's images immerse the reader in a nature perceived through its minute variations of light, humidity, and cloudiness. The clouds thicken, are tinged with golden shades, the plant world rustles, sometimes seems to slip away between blur and sharpness, the animal presence is revealed in the hollow of a wood. The photographic gesture becomes perception. Where are we? The reader will know it only at the end... An essay by Luce Lebart, on the emergence of artists' interest in meteorological phenomena from the Renaissance to the first scientific studies on clouds published at the dawn of the 19th century, places Terri Weifenbach's photographic approach in the long artistic quest to try to restore the world's sensitivity.

    Bruce Gilden – Cherry Blossom

    This book brings together the photographs that Bruce Gilden took in Japan during two residencies and several trips between 1995 and 1999, presenting both the most iconic and half of the unpublished ones. As always, on an impulse of a few fractions of a second, the Magnum photographer gets as close as possible to his subjects and catches them on the fly. In Tokyo and Osaka, he looks for impenetrable places and is interested in the communities that Japanese society tries to hide, especially the yakuzas, motorcycle gangs, marginal people... The result is a gallery of disturbing and fascinating portraits. Twenty years later Inspired by the exhibition on "The New Japanese Photography" at MoMA in 1974, Bruce Gilden arrived in Japan twenty years later for a first six-month residency at the Villa Medici, followed by a second three-month residency in 1998 in the followed by a second residency of three months in 1998 within the framework of the Japan Foundation and several trips until 2000. With his Leica, he leaves every day, at dawn, to explore a Japan that we don't know, the one of the people on the fringe in the big Japanese metropolises, especially in the dangerous district of Sanya where gangsters I thought I had landed in another world, a kind of Japanese version of the Court of Miracles, where all the day laborers, the destitute, the alcoholics and other socially excluded losers live from day to day. In the evening they light braziers to keep warm and in the early morning they queue up in the hope of being hired by the yakuzas for a small job. I took the subway almost every day to arrive at 5:30 in the morning, in the dark, alone, and trusted my instincts to sniff out danger." Each image is a powerful, nervously energetic encounter that creates the picture of a strange and singular street scene. A first selection of these photographs was published in GO in 2000 and for this new book, twenty years later, Bruce Gilden has delved into his archives. With the benefit of hindsight, he has extracted some thirty unpublished images from these hallucinated stays in search of personalities as strong as his own. In this way, he transcribes his vision of Japan. As an introduction, the photographer also makes us relive his peregrinations through several anecdotes and stories.

    Masahisa Fukase – SASUKE

    After the monograph on all his work, this book is devoted to the emblematic series of Masahisa Fukase around his two cats, Sasuke and Momoe, mixing iconic and unpublished photographs. In 1977, Fukase turns his lens towards his new companion: Sasuke. Surrounded by felines since childhood, he decided with the arrival of this new kitten to make it a photographic subject in its own right, fascinated by this lively creature named after a legendary ninja. To his dismay, Sasuke disappeared after ten days and the photographer put up a hundred posters of his lost cat (those on the cover of the book) in his neighborhood. A person brings him back his cat but it's not Sasuke, but he welcomes him with the same affection. A year later, he takes a second cat, nicknamed Momoe, who will also enter the frame. Fukase will not tire of photographing their games, which will become a real field of visual experimentation without limits. As is often the case in his work, this is a form of projection of the photographer into his subject. The cat, a faithful companion who does not leave him, takes the place of his wife, an eternal heartache, represented later by the emblematic fleeing crows. His cats were the subject of several books during his lifetime. Tomo Kosuga, director of the Fukase archives, has delved into this body of images to conceive this book as the culmination of a series of publications dedicated to his felines.

    Francis Rocard, Alfred S. McEwen – MARS, Une exploration photographique

    Valles Marineris, Olympus, Arcadia Planitia, Elysium Mons, Planum Boreum, Icaria Fossae and Noachis Terra are all Martian regions flown over by the NASA observation probe put into orbit in 2005, at an average distance of 300 km, to study the planet's surface. From these tens of thousands of records of unprecedented resolution, Xavier Barral has extracted a series of nearly 200 photographs by keeping a 6 km wide area for each shot. This selection offers a new vision of Mars that reveals the geological and mineralogical contours of this mythical planet. An unsuspected landscape that has been taking shape for more than three billion years. These images are open to multiple interpretations and they send us back to ourselves. To continue this photographic exploration, designed by Xavier Barral and Sébastien Girard, texts by the astrophysicist Francis Rocard and the professor of planetary science Alfred McEwen, detailed captions by the planetologist and geophysicist Nicolas Mangold as well as a planisphere of Mars offer us keys of interpretation and put these enigmatic images in their context.

    Hiroshi Sugimoto – Seascapes

    Seascapes brings together for the first time the entire series with a large number of previously unpublished photographs. For over thirty years, Sugimoto has traveled the world photographing the seas. From light to dark, the seascapes overflow the frame, the surface of the water changes from a sea of oil to a few discreet eddies, from dull to iridescent. Presented sometimes in the form of triptychs, we observe the horizon line dissolve little by little creating true abstract paintings where the sea and the sky merge into a single entity. An exclusive text by Munesuke Mita, professor of sociology at the University of Tokyo, accompanies this journey and sheds light on Sugimoto's approach by examining contemporary art in the light of history and sociology.

    Eugène Atget – Voir Paris

    Eugène Atget (1857-1927), the most famous photographer of old Paris, tirelessly travelled the capital with his bellows camera loaded with glass plates from 1897 onwards, for thirty years, capturing the topography of a changing city. The result of two years of research, carried out jointly by Anne de Mondenard and Agnès Sire, this book brings together a selection of 146 photographs from the 9,164 prints that make up the Atget collection at the Carnavalet Museum. Conceived as a dreamlike and aesthetic stroll, Voir Paris takes us on a journey through time through the stalls, building courtyards, plush interiors, alleys, cafés, ragpickers in the area, urban gardens, quays of the Seine... Favoring the early morning light, his absolute mastery of framing, his attention to the lines of buildings, to unexpected details, to abandoned things elaborate a singular universe. With Atget, photography is reduced to itself, it has no preparation. Through his vision, which mixes the imaginary and the real, Eugène Atget invented modern photography. The photographs, printed in four colors, retain their original edges in the book. They thus bear witness to the materiality and tonality of the original prints, which is unprecedented in the publication of Atget's work.

    Terri Weifenbach – Des oiseaux

    Made in her personal garden space in Washington DC, Terri Weifenbach's photographs reveal the secret world of nature populated by birds that nest in urban gardens. Oscillating between fantasy and reality, her images seem to be taken on the sly as the birds race, dance, or settle, freeze, and congregate in the parliaments. Seasons come and go, the colors of the garden change. The saturated light and colors, the play of fuzzy and crystalline details, the freeze-frames depict a "supra-reality". Terri Weifenbach immerses us in the infinitely small, transporting us into a particularly vivid and wonderful world. This publication is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the vision of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now vulnerable. To accompany these photographs, the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre writes a special essay. For this title, he sheds light on the adaptation of birds to the urban environment.

    Bernard Plossu – Des oiseaux

    Bernard Plossu has been traveling the world for years, capturing through his lens furtive moments where birds are caught in full flight forming immense clouds, standing alone in the middle of a body of water, balancing on electric wires or hovering solitary among the peaks. Flight fascinates the photographer, from the exhilaration of the swallows' speed to the hypnotic immobility of the great birds of prey carried by the wind in altitude. He shows fragments of the world, a world where birds reinvest our space. The essay by the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre evokes a fundamental aspect of the life of birds: migration, highlighted here with the photographs of Bernard Plossu. This book, together with the one by Pentti Sammallahti, inaugurate the collection Des oiseaux, celebrating, through the eyes of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile.

    Pentti Sammallahti – Des oiseaux

    Pentti Sammallahti is a traveler photographer who captures the mysteries of nature and among them, the world of birds. Seashores, ponds, parks, endless plains, forest foliage, snowy landscapes... In these isolated spaces around the world, birds reveal their presence with malice and poetry. Like visual tales, his B&W photographs show a particular attention to detail, to the light that shapes the spaces, to the silent expanses in which a human or animal presence suddenly appears. The experience of the image is twofold: beyond his narrative virtuosity, his use of two-color printing, with immaculate whites, such as the plumage of his swans or his pink flamingos, confronted with deep blacks, creates a play on textures and forcefully restores a world where birds hold a singular place. This book is one of the first two titles in the Des oiseaux collection, which celebrates, through the eyes of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are nowadays fragile. To accompany this set of photographs, the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre highlights the relationship to the seasons, which is a fundamental aspect of the life of birds. Where it exists, winter is an important constraint with which the birds must deal and which induces strategies of search for food and energy saving, or even gregariousness. The author associates here the life of birds in winter with the images of Pentti Sammallahti.

    Byung-Hun Min – Des oiseaux

    To make visible the silence and simplicity of nature, the sensation of time passing. Korean photographer Byung-Hun Min's photographs, taken around the world between 1998 and 2020, have the evanescence of a pencil drawing: low contrast, playing with silky tones, they seem to show a fleeting moment between clarity and dissolution. The birds of Min inhabit an impalpable space. They seem to be wrapped in a white veil, in a silvery light. The almost monochrome image, the uniformity of the tones oscillating between white and grey, the absence of perspectives and contrasts, the simplicity of the construction and the minimalism of the forms restore a reality that has become fantastic. The long work during the printing of the negative allows the photographer to render not only what he has seen but also perceived. Min's birds invite contemplation. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. The ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. For this book, he is interested in the relationship that binds man to the bird from the first representations of prehistoric times to the domestication of certain species, to the bird as a hunting instrument to the pure observation of this inexhaustible subject of study and wonder. This book is part of the collection Of Birds which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. Other titles in the collection include: Michael Kenna, Yoshinori Mizutani, Bernard Plossu, Pentti Sammallahti and Terri Weifenbach.

    Michael Kenna – Des oiseaux

    A master of black and white landscape photography, Michael Kenna presents an almost evanescent world that he invites us to contemplate. "In all my work, there is an underlying theme of memory, time, change, and atmospheres that seem to be linked to place. Birds hover, drawing aerial figures in cloudy skies, waiting wisely on branches... Suspended flights, stopped moments: time freezes, becomes immutable. Gradients of gray, tones with a slight sepia tint and depth of field give Michael Kenna's photographs a certain melancholy. The world is silence.

    Graciela Iturbide – Des oiseaux

    Graciela Iturbide, a leading figure in Latin American photography, creates images that oscillate between documentary approach and lyricism. Off-center framing, graphic effects and the power of shadows create a poetic universe where the feeling of strangeness is mixed with that of a raw reality. The powerful balance of his compositions shows skies saturated with birds, funny and unexpected situations where chickens wait quietly on market stalls, where pigeons argue with monkeys, and elsewhere are moving swarms that look like real living organisms with supple and fluid movements. For Iturbide, living birds represent freedom. But death is never far away and neither is a certain surrealist spirit. From India to Mexico, from waterfronts to urban terraces, seagulls, eagles, pigeons, herons, crows invade human space or slip in unexpectedly and solitarily. Graciela Iturbide's birds arouse both attraction and repulsion: their fragility but sometimes also their power. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. Other titles in the collection include: Michael Kenna, Yoshinori Mizutani, Bernard Plossu, Pentti Sammallahti and Terri Weifenbach.

    Raymond Depardon – La Chambre

    Signed and numbered edition from 1 to 500 In La Chambre, signed and numbered to 500 copies, Raymond Depardon invites us on a journey to the family farm of Le Garet, where he grew up, through a selection of iconic images taken in color, with a view camera. This large negative format, with its long exposure, transforms each image into a painting, a silent passage in and around this farm that has marked the family's destiny. The smallest details, seemingly insignificant, become a photographic subject. A chair, a table, a wallpaper pattern, each element is a fragment of the photographer's memory that transports us through his memories in a permanent tension between past and present. The work questions this relationship to time and the universal concept of memory, both highlighted in a text by philosopher Jacques Rancière, written especially for the book. La Chambre is presented as a carefully crafted artist's book with a stunning form. Each photograph is hand-glued only to the top edge of the paper and positioned in a dry-marked bowl identical to the format of the original negative. The images are thus reproduced to scale 1 and appear like a print glued in an album.

    Harry Gruyaert – India

    India is disconcerting, it destabilizes you and makes you lose your bearings. It stimulates you intellectually. There is an energy there that is born of an impression of constant chaos: the people, the cities, the swarming of the crowd. What immediately interested me was the multiplicity of elements with which one can compose and this orgy of colors that one must try to control in order not to fall into the easy way. - Harry Gruyaert Through a dozen trips over more than 40 years, Harry Gruyaert has tirelessly traveled the Indian peninsula and in this book gives us a testimony of this country in tension where tradition and modernity, effervescence and tranquility, permanently coexist. Multiple details, different layers, are intertwined in these photographs, mostly unpublished, which oscillate between chromatic power and an almost monochrome palette. The air is saturated with color, light, noise, and sometimes silence. By restoring the multi-sensory experience that he has perceived over the years in the face of the mysteries of this country, the Belgian photographer paints a contrasting picture that is far from exotic. Harry Gruyaert recounts, in the introduction, his discovery and fascination for India. While various excerpts from Jean-Claude Carrière's Dictionnaire amoureux de l'Inde punctuate this visual exploration of the Indian peninsula.

    Albarrán Cabrera – Des oiseaux

    The poetic universe of the Spanish photographic duo Albarrán Cabrera is presented here through a dreamlike journey to the land of birds. Between reality and illusion, the image questions our relationship to the tangible world and becomes a sensitive vibration through different chromatic shades and photographic processes: platinum print, palladium, cyanotype, silver gelatin, pigmented print ... Each image is like a stopped story. The birds seem to come straight out of fantastic tales; they take flight on shimmering surfaces, scatter among dark foliage while some tight framing underlines their physical presence. The birds become almost abstract, sometimes represented by dots or shadows. Albarrán Cabrera leaves the interpretation of their images to the viewer's memory to let our imagination fly. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux that celebrates, through the eyes of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs.

    Leila Jeffreys – Des oiseaux

    In this book, Leila Jeffreys invites us on a journey through the tropical forests and jungles of the world to meet the amazing species of birds she has been photographing since 2008: "I have always noticed that many birds have particular expressions. To capture them, I had to find a way to photograph them in a way that would bring out their own character. My favorite way to photograph them is to set up a portrait studio in a place that is familiar to them. I talk to them as I work so they interact with me. Cultivating this art of waiting, Leila Jeffreys delivers a gallery of whimsical yet hyper-realistic portraits populated by cockatoos, wild parakeets, five-colored diamonds and other exotic species of colorful animals. In turn, graceful, mischievous, fierce, proud, shy, posers: each bird photographed lets its personality shine through and seems to want to dialogue with the viewer. His practice underlines the anthropomorphism shared between man and animal. This book is part of the Des oiseaux collection, which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile.

    Josef Koudelka – Ruines

    Through nearly 200 photographs, this important work traces the entirety of Josef Koudelka's work on the ancient sites around the Mediterranean. The result of 28 years of peregrinations through 20 countries, Koudelka photographed 200 archaeological sites in the same panoramic format. For some, he returned several times, sometimes even ten times, over different periods, in search of the "best image". Beyond a romantic and picturesque vision of these sites, Josef Koudelka's astonishing framing, often flush with the ground in plunge or counter-plunge, and his black and white with powerful contrasts make us rediscover some mythical places like Delphi and Pompeii. Among Koudelka's photographs, some show sites that have disappeared or been mutilated as a result of recent conflicts in the Arab world, such as Palmyra or Bosra. This exceptional corpus reveals the homogeneity of an empire, ruled from Rome, for centuries, the fascination we have for the ruins and for a civilization founding ours. To accompany these photographs, the Hellenist Alain Schnapp has drawn from ancient literature and that of travel writers ancient and modern quotations that cast a different light on antiquity and its ruins, and put into perspective our vision of the past. Several texts also shed light on this work: Héloïse Conésa examines the photographer's singular approach and recontextualizes it in the history of art, Bernard Latarjet recounts Koudelka's interest in the panoramic format and his fascination with ruins, while Alain Schnapp traces the history of ruins and what they have represented for societies over the centuries.
