    AFP, une épopée photo

    A sensitive diary of history through AFP photos After a relentless search through the 6 million film photos produced by Agence France-Presse over the course of its history (starting with the creation of the Havas agency in 1835, which became AFP in 1944), Marielle Eudes, director of AFP's special photo projects, and Christophe Calais, the project's editorial director, have come up with a historical and photographic fresco that is largely unpublished. The images they have brought to light - thanks to the complicity of the institution's Documentation Department and the expertise of its photo lab - travel back in time like "time capsules", to quote Michel Poivert, a photography historian who wrote the preface to the book. Questioning the French touch of the agency's reporters, he questions the heritage of humanist photography that the authors sublimate by combining it with the culture of current events. The approximately 300 photos gathered make up an "immediate collective memory that resonates with each of us," Marielle Eudes analyzes.

    Carolina Arantes – First Génération

    First Génération reports on several years of research on the expression of a post-immigration identity in Europe. In 2014, Carolina Arantes began First Génération, a long-term project that revolves around the first generation of French women from West Africa. In the desire to offer them more visibility, the photographer went to meet these women. At the heart of the book, their voices cross the pictures and the archival documents used echo each other, and reveal a reality often hidden. In contact with them, the artist's Brazilian traditions - imprinted with theirs in many aspects - then resurfaced in the common past of colonization. "It gave me a broader view of the world. I hope that this work will allow others (especially those not involved) to have a better understanding of our identities, of our humanism. Because times are changing. It is a committed generation that no longer accepts certain mores stemming from a colonialist vision. These women are aware of their own value and the value of African culture in history," she said.

    Clara Belleville – Entre nous

    All the ambiguity of human relationships in their essential, dangerous and marvellous aspects. For more than seven years, Clara Belleville has viscerally photographed the intimacy of those around her and herself. She has observed people who love each other and sometimes turn their backs on each other, a woman reading, so happy to be alone, and men who embrace each other with tenderness. Clara has captured these moments which show that intimacy is often a gift, sometimes a temporary state, sometimes an escape, and most often a quest for happiness which is always threatened. She has extracted 75 photographs from them, divided into three chapters, in her first book "Entre nous". This book offers the reader a world of friendship and ties, into which he can enter, for the time of a glance, without ever feeling like a voyeur.

    Quentin Pruvost – Inland Voyage

    A journey on the edge of a dream Inland Voyage is a book of openness, adventure, and a quest for the unknown: it explores the work of the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, who wrote An Inland Voyage in 1878: this short travelogue recounts, with humour and modernity, the canoe trip of Stevenson and his friend Walter Grindlay Simpson on the rivers and canals of the Sambre and the Oise from Antwerp to Pontoise. The first few pages take us gently down the water. We go down the river bed, on the Sambre and then the Oise, we follow forgotten ghosts, we explore the memories of wanderers and travellers. Quentin Pruvost's images navigate in the shadows and trace a trail of light. A will-o'-the-wisp to follow. In the wake of Robert Louis Stevenson, we are carried away by the current, carried along by dreams, suspended like tightrope walkers between the tangible and the invisible. It is in the middle of a flood that we learn to stabilise. Balancing between two worlds, we recognize the mystery, we welcome the uncertainty, we embrace the initiatory journey. And as the book expires its last page, we understand that nothing is quite the same as before. The book ends with two postfaces, one signed by the writer and journalist Hervé Leroy, which establishes a dialogue between the (photographic) eye and the (literary) word, and the other signed by the journalist Jean-Philippe Mailliez, which takes us to the heart of Stevenson's travelling life and talent for storytelling.

    Patrice Dion – PAN

    A sensitive experience that plunges us into the dimension of a Book-Tree. The PAN book was born in a garden in the summer of 2019. On the leaves of the trees that surround him, the catalpa, the amaranth, the Japanese mulberry, the vine... Patrice Dion patiently experiments and reproduces his photographs thanks to the action of the sun alone. Without chemistry or electricity, he improves his process and obtains a precise image on each tree leaf used instead of photosensitive paper. This approach echoes the photographic experiments of anthotypy. The beauty of the PAN book itself lies in the relationship between the thin tree leaf, the support for Patrice Dion's photographs, and the sheet of paper chosen for their reproduction. It is a question of finding with the texture of this object-book the same sensation that our fingers can feel when touching a natural leaf. Printed on a very delicate paper (Pergamenata) or on a textured paper (Arena Natural), each photograph follows the curves and veins, catching here and there a memory, a sensation, an encounter that each sheet seems to preserve tenderly in its veins. As the pages turn, a narrative is discovered with the characters, animals and abstract figures of the photographs, some details of which are isolated and put in relation to others. The reader is immersed in a dreamlike atmosphere, with a sensual, vegetal essence, which echoes the inherent fragility of nature, its ephemeral essence. A few words from the author and creator of the L'Intervalle website Fabien Ribery appear on the pages, which are transformed under the reader's fingers into a sensory and intimate experience. Beyond being an astonishing editorial object, PAN questions our place as human beings in this natural world, today marked by the anthropocene.

    Simon Vansteenwinckel – Wuhan Radiography

    An experimental journey through a distant and strangely familiar city Wuhan Radiography is a surprising book about a series of black and white film images taken by the Belgian photographer Simon Vansteenwinckel. From the very first pages, doubts arise... The images seem real, yet ghostly. They are beautiful, overexposed, sometimes radiant. It seems that the photographer has used a special film. A filter or a glossy film? The illusion is total and indescribable. The scenes of life, the places and the urban characters, are mysterious, as if captured between two universes, frozen between day and night. Here and there, a luminous halo hovers over the city, like an observing star. Through his enigmatic modus operandi, the photographer creates a disturbing dismantling of our preconceptions. We no longer know where we are. The city is indeed Wuhan, now known worldwide. But was it before or after the pandemic? When did the photographer get lost there? Did he ever go there? The text by the philosopher and poet Johan Grzelczyk, which accompanies the images, gradually takes us into this artificial and glittering night. His words follow one another, break up and hide under the shadows, questioning our way of populating a world adrift. The dystopian atmosphere questions our freedom of movement in a land where distance no longer exists, shortened by technology, where fog is already taking over forgotten landscapes. Like an echo of Chris Marker's La Jetée, the book takes us on a journey of discovery of a distant, strangely familiar city that holds its breath under the threat of an immense sun. It echoes our resistance, our ability to reinvent ourselves, to find new ways of residing in the city.

    Yannick Cormier – Tierra Mágica

    Journey through the masquerades of northwest Spain Tierra Mágica deals with the rituals and masquerades of northwest Spain. Every year, the sound of bells emerges from the mists that surround the villages and try to announce the end of winter, we also hear cries and distant music. As we approach, we begin to distinguish walking trees, fantastic birds and more disturbing figures. These processions seem to come from far away, from the depths of time, from under the earth. Photographer Yannick Cormier's book captures the astonishment we feel when confronted with these figures, which are both frightening and attractive. The book is built on a rhythm that alternates black and white photographs (taken in medium format on film) of misty landscapes and sudden apparitions. These masquerades have survived the centuries and wars with little change. They can be seen now as the resurgence of an animistic world preceding the Christian expansion. One could almost say that these costumes embody the pagan earth, in opposition to the divine sky: all the wild nuances are reinterpreted in the animal, vegetable or chimerical finery. A parade of sensations follows, oscillating between dream and nightmare, with Yannick Cormier opening the ball. The black and white film photographs are complemented by a text by Candice Moise, an academic and specialist in the study of masks.

    Olivia Lavergne – JUNGLES

    « The jungle offers in its exuberance a plant festival, a nature as if drunk with its autonomy. » Extract from the preface by Xavier Canonne, director of the Musée de la Photographie de Charleroi The forest is an ecosystem whose autonomous breathing produces the oxygen it consumes, a living environment where fabulous plant species can grow. In our imagination, the forest is also the stifling, cruel or marvellous setting of many dreams that fade in the morning but are taken up and amplified by storytellers. Olivia Lavergne is a visual artist who has been roaming the landscapes since childhood, oscillating between reality and fiction. She followed her photographic path by venturing alone into the jungle with her lighting and has now been creating unique images for ten years, captured in the middle of trees. The book JUNGLES organizes the photographs like a cinematic sequence that builds to a crescendo on the crossed threads of emotion and desire.

    Thibault Lévêque – Tchachachao

    Spontaneous fragments of life Behind the glittery cover of Tchachachao are hidden moments of joy and freedom. Thibault Lévêque crystallized them and then recorded them in a full-page format, as if he wanted to abstract everything that might seem superfluous. Like the reminiscences that are superimposed in the blurred mind, the festive pictures are thus thrown together in a spontaneous way. According to the memories, some vagabond poems slip here and there, on the images or on transparent paper. This haphazard succession is also embodied in the book-object which, by its absence of binding, shows a great flexibility. Like a road book that one would fill in as time goes by, the book opens flat. It immerses us all the better in these fragments of life, sublimated by the eye of the seasoned photographer.

    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.

    Théo Gosselin – Roll (Second edition)

    Following its successful publication in 2021, the book is being republished this year with changes in content and design. 10 years of travel, 10 years of photography. Fisheye presents Théo Gosselin's new book, Roll, with a retrospective look at a decade of photography. Roll gathers about a hundred images, iconic or unknown, from the beginning of the photographer's career to the present day. We discover the maturity of a vision from a generation eager to escape, to travel, to listen to music and to share moments with friends or acquaintances made on the road, simply in passing. With the United States as a backdrop, the photographer invites us to dream of a permanent road-trip in landscapes where the soundtrack seems to impose itself.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.
