    Luo Yang – Carpe Diem

    Introduction to Chinese youth, beyond the imposed stereotypes When we talk about “Ba ling hou” (born after the 1980s) in China, we are actually talking about the first generation born under the one-child policy and raised during the reform and opening up led by Deng Xiaoping after the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). This generation grew up together with the Internet and social media, melting into a consumer society that is totally in rupture with the preceding generations. Luo Yang, a photographer born in 1984, is also one of them. In 2007, at the age of 23, Luo started the series Girls, which brought her international recognition. For ten years, Luo Yang followed more than a hundred of women from her generation, recording changes to their bodies and their lives, observing and capturing their delicate transition to adulthood. It's as if the photographer was capturing their (her) emotions as a young woman by holding a mirror up to her own growth and evolution alongside those of her models. Now, Luo Yang is in her late 30s. In the new series Youth that she started in 2019, Luo shifts her focus to a younger generation born in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She continues to explore through Generation Z the changes of contemporary China now globalized and reached on a new scale and tries to preserve a photographic trace of these “atypical characters” in a social context. From Girls to Youth, Luo Yang keeps “documenting” the post-teenagers and young adults that she met in her everyday life, using her works to tell the "story of youth" across generations. She depicts an emerging Chinese youth culture through her work that defies imposed expectations and stereotypes, showing evidence of her subjects’ individuality and personality. It is a personal account at femininity, gender, and identity that reflects the profound and ongoing changes taking place in our society.

    Enzo Lefort – Olympic Backstage

    The athlete and photographer Enzo Lefort describes his unique daily life during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. In Olympic Backstage, Enzo Lefort has documented the backstage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Postponed to the following year due to the pandemic, a singular climate reigns over the Olympic village. With the ban on leaving the hotel outside of training and competitions, and health restrictions intermingled with the stress of the events, photography is a real escape route. In this first book published by Fisheye, Enzo Lefort looks back on this atypical adventure while paying tribute to his teammates. Accompanied by Steven Alexis - creative director and founder of the design studio Bureau Pléiades - the two of them imagine an immersive experience. The photographs are combined with the written word and memories to give a better account of these three weeks of extraordinary preparation, rewarded by the award of a gold medal.

    Jean-Christophe Béchet – Macadam Color Street Photo

    The Street holds the upper hand Jean-Christophe Béchet is a tireless walking photographer who has been surveying the world's major cities for several decades, capturing moments of urbanity where the documentary spirit coexists with a poetry of the strange and the enigmatic. For him, street photography constitutes a specific genre, an idea that he submits to the reflections of Michel Poivert, Jean-Luc Monterosso and Sylvie Hugues in a stimulating book.

    Delphine Diallo – Divine

    A powerful photographic journey through portraiture and collage by French-Senegalese photographer Delphine Diallo. Divine is Brooklyn-based photographer Delphine Diallo's gift to women and portraiture, a book of photographs as an offering to the ennobled subjects that feature in her work. Working with body painters and jewellery and mask makers, Delphine uses traditional mythology and spiritual symbols to empower her subjects. She believes that women are deep beings and connects with them on an emotional level. Diallo's images are meant to encourage each woman to write a personal narrative, to take a stand, to have a voice. Drawing on elements of Eastern mythology and philosophy, her photographs raise awareness by calling on all women to take a stand and be heard. Delphine immerses herself in the female universe and her eloquent portrait technique reveals and elicits unexplored emotions and insight beyond appearances.

    Mahmoud Alkurd – Phenomenon in Gaza

    Through conceptual photographs, Mahmoud Alkurd shares his own vision of the catastrophe suffered by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip during Israel's 2014 Protective Edge attack. Writer Mo'men Ashour's highly realistic narratives, drawn from real events, bring the consistency of traumatic experience to these poetic images. Today, the geopolitical and humanitarian situation has not changed.

    Véronique de Viguerie – Irak inch’Allah

    After the removal of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and the international state lie about Iraq's possession of nuclear weapons, the country can no longer mourn its dead. The Sunnis have been marginalised, the Shiites have taken power and the threat of Daesh has emerged. Véronique de Viguerie and Manon Querouil-Bruneel have investigated Iraq over the past few years and report on its political, humanitarian and social disaster. The Shiites band together to fight Daesh, the Sunnis complain about the Shiites. All these people live side by side, try to live together, you even meet mixed couples of different faiths. But there is still resentment. Some think, others say that the roots of evil are still very present, favouring the gestation of another monster, much worse than Daesh.

    Laurent Elie Badessi – Age of innocence

    Their names are Rylee, Donovan, Gracie, Catalyan, Lily, Michael... they are between 3 and 17 years old and live in Texas, Idaho, Louisiana, New York... These children and teenagers posed in front of photographer Laurent Elie Badessi's camera with a gun in their hands and all answered clearly to this very simple question: "What do you like about guns? While the aim of this photographic work is to explore the obvious attraction of guns for a large proportion of Americans, this book also invites us to face this social, political and moral reality.

    Véronique de Viguerie – Yémen, la guerre qu’on nous cache

    In addition to the almost daily bombardments by the Saudi-led Coalition, which sometimes target civilians, the Yemenis in the north, who have been under siege for years, are suffering from a shortage of water, oil, food and medicine. Every ten minutes, a child dies, mostly of a perfectly benign disease. Child soldiers are used as cannon fodder on the front lines. Oil, humanitarian aid and medicines are overtaxed by the corrupt in power. Reporters Véronique de Viguerie and Manon Querouil-Bruneel went to Yemen to investigate this war, which they reveal to us. This work won the prestigious Visa pour l'Image award, as well as the Visa d'Or humanitaire from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). This edition was supported by Amnesty International.

    Jean Paul Olive – Athènes et ses îles

    Athens and its islands, we could also say Athens and its daughters. We can see the Ariadne's thread between them, and the thousand-year-old connection with the Capital, the mother country. All Greeks, including those who have gone far away, have a favourite island. To meet them, I just had to let myself be carried by the waves and let the years go by. Happy who like Ulysses...

    Mohammed Dib – Tlemcen ou les lieux de l’écriture

    This book is the story of a childhood lost forever that is told in the present tense; it is a Dib-child who fixes the moments felt and captures the moments that have fled. The buried desire of Dib as a child to have a writing space, not to become a writer, but only to feel that he exists, that he is free. The living conditions of the time (1946), so harsh, offered only one alternative to the "native" children: either early work or - as was his case - school. To revisit this magnificent guide to childhood in the 1940s is to take a journey into Mohammed Dib's childhood and to rediscover the ancient codes underlying a body of work that never ceases to amaze us. This book is a re-edition and a new version of the project Tlemcen ou les lieux de l'écriture as it was conceived in 1993 on the initiative of the French Cultural Centre of Tlemcen, then published in 1994 by La Revue Noire in Paris. It contains unpublished images of the photographer.

    Abed Abidat – Algeroid

    The photos you will discover in this book are the result of three years of travels in the city of Algiers. The photographer decided to use the polaroid photographic technique. It is a singular approach to offer his photograph to the person portrayed, in order to preserve the negative, as a backdrop, altered, immemorial, a revelation of the realization of this work.

    Arnaud du Boistesselin – Le Caire – Portraits

    It is 2002. I live in downtown Cairo. Every day I go out to understand the city. To show and make people feel what I am experiencing, I am going to photograph this street, people and animals, houses and traffic. I decide to take a small digital camera, to hide it in my hand and to take the photographs without aiming, the subject does not know he is being photographed, so he cannot compose his character. The absence of aiming and the latency of the release mean that I do not give my image an instant sophistication.

    Natela Grigalashvili – La terre des Doukhobors

    The Doukhobors appeared three centuries ago in Russia as a pacifist community that rejected the Church's liturgy and opposed all civil government. Their history was thus one of persecution, deprivation of freedom and deportation. Despite the difficult conditions imposed on them, they remained faithful to their convictions: exiled from Crimea to Georgia, they founded several villages in the Javakheti region. But to escape reprisals, a large part of the community chose to leave for Canada at the beginning of the 20th century, supported by Tolstoy and his supporters.

    Arnaud du Boistesselin – L’esprit de l’escalier

    Arnaud du Boistesselin has lived in Cairo for fifteen years. His photographs are devoted to the richness and diversity of building interiors. They highlight a heritage that is much less visible than the façades. He transposes into his medium the plastic universe that permeates the soul and daily life of the inhabitants of downtown Cairo, something of a past history that continues to weave strong links with the present. Because taking the path of the spiral designed by this or that staircase every day, perhaps several times a day, is also physically inscribing in one's own body the memory of the design conceived for us by an architect. On the pages, Jean-François Galletout's mini-novellas give a very Cairo-like humanity.

    Raymond Depardon, Kamel Daoud – Son œil dans ma main

    Algeria 1961 Raymond Depardon, at the age of nineteen, was sent by the Delmas agency to report on a country in turmoil - the last stirrings of the Algerian war of independence. The young photographer captures his images at high speed; he collects about a hundred of them, all of them striking. He readily says that his awareness and sensitivity were decisively forged during this journey. Raymond Depardon exhumed these photos (some of which were published in "Un aller pour Alger", Points, 2010), and in a very strong and generous gesture, offered them to Éditions Barzakh and then to Images Plurielles, two publishers of numerous authors with an international reputation. The idea was born that Raymond Depardon should make another trip in 2019 to complete the 1961 photos with a "postscript". This he did from 15 to 24 September 2019. He photographed Algiers, still in black and white, in its abundant contemporaneity. He also spent five days in Oran, where he met up with the writer Kamel Daoud for long strolls through the city. These proved so powerful that it was decided to keep about 30 of them. Kamel Daoud, delighted by the project, wrote several texts. They are almost disjointed from the photos, they will be meditations or wild reveries. If we take up the distinction elaborated by Barthes, dear to Raymond Depardon: far from being "anchor-texts", they will be "relay-texts", autonomous in relation to the latter, without any apparent link with it, like "vision" texts.

    Liu Silin – Celine Liu

    Liu Silin creates through herself a character, Celine Liu, who traverses history, culture, politics and identity, while asserting that Celine Liu is in fact no one: she can be anyone, and anyone can be Celine Liu. In an age of image overload, Celine Liu uses herself as a medium to push back the boundaries between the real and the fictional, the mundane and the ritualistic, the private and the public, the individual and the universal, allowing the fictional character to circulate, evolve and be "consumed" in the virtual world of the Internet. In "I'm everywhere", the artist "falsifies history" by inserting herself seamlessly as Céline Liu into old photographs of celebrities, travelling in and out of major historical scenes, or chatting and laughing with them in private. In "Appme", she creates a series of hybrid self-portraits of Celine Liu using a selfie app, and depicts people from various decades and identities of the 20th century. In the "Siren" series, she travels through cities and villages looking for passers-by who can lip-sync and imitate the sound of mermaids with her. These people come from different parts of the world, have different identities, are well known or completely anonymous. While many artists choose to focus on the "art" aspect, Liu Silin instead diverts attention away from "art", trying to dissolve the "elitism" and limitations of art itself, in an effort to bridge the gap between art and the general public. As she said when working on the "Siren" series, "Everyone should have the right to express themselves and the awareness to do so." Through her self-constructed images, Liu Silin re-examines historical narratives and cultural memories, and reflects on the obsession with cultural icons and the value of commodity culture in the mass media environment. In his artistic practice, Liu Silin investigates and reinterprets the traditional social conventions of the "image cult", conventions that are constructed and shaped precisely by the mass media environment and our digital life.

    Li Lang – 1974

    Each has a unique starting point in their own memory. For Li Lang, it all began in 1974. This work, "1974", consists of 390 slides played in a loop, accompanied by the artist's voice-over, 4 stories from his memory of 1974, and a summary of the important events of that year. Li Lang's work reconstructs his imagination from his memory, through a voice-over and old photos. The images and texts are no longer just traces of the past. They also explore the potential dialogue with reality, in the space between light and shadow. Li never asks the audience to accept his account of history. Instead, he invites us to join him as an explorer of the past.

    Wang Juyan – Uncharted+

    "Uncharted+" continues the dystopian character of Wang Juyan's work. As the title suggests, the book presents a series of unexplored landscapes, either through their physical existence or through digital collages, from Wang's "2084, 2085 and 2086" project. Somehow, through a bird's eye view, the perspective seems to be inhabited by a power. "Uncharted+" is inspired by the ambiguity of the power of aerial images, which do not contain a linear narrative but monumental and metaphorical landscapes.

    Sun Yanchu – Even Us Even Me

    In the "Lost Souls" series that Sun Yanchu began in 2013, the subject, or object, can be a priori described as a landscape, but it seems to be much more. As through the evolution of 'shanshui' painting in China, in his work nature serves as a metaphor or vehicle to convey a state of mind. It may be the photographer's state of mind, but also that of his or her generation, the society in which he or she lives or the general aura of the time. A mix of "Obsessed", "Lost Souls" and Sun's latest work, "Ficciones", "Even Us, Even Me" is most appealing for its underlying sense of confirmation of the existence of a world outside ourselves. These quivering images attract us. We feel the vibrations of the elemental energy that flows through the vistas and carries us away in its currents. We lose ourselves in their movement, we step out of ourselves, while remembering moments when we found ourselves in the embrace of nature, braving the wind and realising how good, though sometimes difficult, it is to be alive.
