    + PHOTOGRAPHIE #2 – Catalogue 2021

    Every year, thousands of photographs and objects (prints, negatives, albums...) enter French public collections. National or regional museums, major cultural institutions, Fracs, archive centers or libraries have a dynamic acquisition policy, the richness of which this collection aims to show. This second volume focuses on the acquisitions made by institutions in 2019, both in the field of heritage and contemporary creation. Major national institutions participate in the work along with unexpected or little-known places. Rare works by great masters - Gustave Le Gray, Man Ray - rub shoulders with established contemporary artists - Susan Meiselas, Bernard Plossu or Wolfgang Tillmans. Exceptional historical pieces are presented alongside remarkable curiosities and discoveries: images of the Guadeloupean photographer Adolphe Catan, color fashion photographs from the 1930s, albums of prisoners, archives of major agencies that have forged the imagination of the 20th century ... Through this selection of works placed in their context of creation and acquisition, +Photographie revisits the history of the medium, from its origins to its most contemporary uses, and intends to become a reference collection on the diversity of photography today. THE PHOTOGRAPHERS This book presents the photographs acquired during 2019. It brings together some 180 authors and artists belonging to the heritage and contemporary fields. THE AUTHORS OF THE TEXTS The texts are written by the various curators or people in charge of collections of institutions and museums. The book is prefaced by the Minister of Culture, Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin.

    Michel Denancé – ARCHISABLE 2

    Curator Tina Bloch has invited 34 European architects to rediscover the gestures of the sand castle builders. On the beaches of Deauville and Benerville, astonishing monuments have risen between sky and sea, mandalas and labyrinths as far as the eye can see have had a fleeting but intense existence. Both land art and sand painting, the proposals, maturely elaborated or improvised according to the inspiration of the moment, are of an amazing diversity. Digging, building, sculpting, molding, scarifying, raking, drawing, modeling... sand lends itself to all poetic inventions. Between two tides, the photographer Michel Denancé has captured their ephemeral beauty, mixing eye-level perspectives and aerial views for a result of great aesthetic strength. THE PHOTOGRAPHER Trained as an architect, Michel Denancé takes more pleasure in observing the work of others than in producing it himself. His reports simultaneously highlight the building itself (both a volume defined by its walls and a living space installed in a site) and the architects' intentions. His photographs appear in the specialized press, sometimes in generalist publications, and accompany monographs of architects (Renzo Piano, in particular), books devoted to a building or thematic reviews. The photographs executed outside of the commissioned work also concern the landscape or the city and are sometimes the subject of books: Dogon Doumbo Doumbo (a micro-territory of the Dogon country), Mille milliards de milieux (landscapes of Seine-Saint-Denis), Un si parfait jardin (Algiers), Petites Agonies urbaines (walled facades in the Paris region), all accompanied by texts by writers and published by Bec en l'air. Tina Bloch is a curator, at the initiative in 2016 of the Archisable project which was the subject of a first book (Éd. Xavier Barral, 2018).

    Hugues de Wurstemberger – SÈTE#21

    Release May 21, 2021 ImageSingulières is a festival of documentary photography created in 2009 in Sète. Each year, a photographer is invited to look at the city and produce a series of images that is published in a book. In 2021 the carte blanche is entrusted to the Swiss photographer Hugues de Wurstemberger. Known for his work that emphasizes the links between humans and territory - whether it be his children or the people of Africa - it is once again through the prism of the relationship to the land that he approached his residency by surveying the banks of the ponds (Thau, Vic, Ingril...). Listening to nature, probing the wild grasses of the paths and the lagoon posidonia to the horizon, he transfigures the banality of the ordinary, that of the daily life of the fishmongers, seed growers and other dreamers of the basin. THE PHOTOGRAPHER Hugues de Wurstemberger is a Swiss photographer, member of Agence VU' since its creation in 1986 and represented by Galerie VU'. He first became known for his photographs of the interior of the Swiss Guard. For a long time he worked on the daily life and intimacy of forgotten populations throughout the world. In 2005, he published AOC, une identité retrouvée (Infolio), as well as Pauline et Pierre (Quo Vadis). His work was awarded the Niépce Prize in 1990, the World Press Photo in 1991, and the Silver Award in 2002. THE AUTHOR OF THE TEXT Christian Caujolle is artistic director and curator of numerous international exhibitions. A key figure in the world of contemporary photography, he has written the texts of numerous catalogs and monographs of photographers. He directs the PhotoPhnomPenh festival in Cambodia and has just been appointed artistic advisor to the Château d'Eau (Toulouse). In Sète, along with Gilles Favier, he is the artistic director of the ImageSingulières festival.

We discover the maturity of a look from a generation eager for escape, travel, music and moments shared with friends or acquaintances made on the road, simply in passing. With the United States as a background, the photographer invites us to dream a permanent road-trip in landscapes where the soundtrack seems to impose itself.

    Pauline Alioua, Chris Garvi – Tableaux d’Iran

    Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi (photographs) - Jean-Christophe Béchet (text) The paintings of Iran by Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi, bordered by intriguing grays and velvety colors, are of a very Iranian calm: muffled silence in its desert heart, urban murmurs, muffled echoes on the edge of a sea so little visited, discreet joy of children, solitude while waiting for a bus, furtive silhouette in an alley... The deliberate absence of any toponymy doesn't lead us astray. In response to the reality of their discoveries in film, an unsuspected part of our imagination opens up. THE PHOTOGRAPHERS' AUTHORS: PAULINE ALIOUA and CHRIS GARVI Pauline and Chris met in 2016 in Marseille. Their sensibility, their origins, their interest for art and particularly photography spontaneously echo. From then on, they consider common photographic projects. In summer 2016, they undertake a first long trip to Eastern Europe. In 2017 they travel to Morocco and explore a common family anchorage there. In 2017 and 2019 they travel to Iran, whose culture, history and mystery inexorably attract them. Already published: Plein Cœur, Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi (self-published 2016 out of print)-Dans le creux du manque, Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi (Arnaud Bizalion Editor 2018) THE TEXT'S AUTHOR: JEAN-CHRISTOPHE BECHET Jean-Christophe Bechet is a French photographer, writer and journalist born in 1964. He is one of the most important French photographers of today, author of more than 20 monographic books, and of about sixty exhibitions in France and abroad, and has developed throughout his career the idea of "inhabited landscapes" and "poetic documentary". His photographs are present in numerous private and public collections.

    Renato D’Agostin – Harmony of Chaos

    Renowned for his unique style, exhibited worldwide, featured in prestigious private and public collections, and the subject of numerous best-selling publications, Renato D'Agostin's work has held a very special place in the world of photography over the years. With his new series, Harmony of Chaos, the artist raises the bar even higher, discovering new horizons. In Harmony of Chaos, Renato D'Agostin depicts the vibrancy and claustrophobia he felt in the streets of Shanghai. Far from a simple portrait of the city, he draws from this sensory experience a series that highlights the DNA of postmodern cities at large. The photographs emphasize the anonymity generated by urban structures in a controlled vocabulary that constantly plays with scale. The series gives us a glimpse of the rapid changes that have occurred in these cities and questions the place of Man in these new megacities. Theo-Mario Coppola, who wrote the preface to the book, describes the atmosphere of the series perfectly: "Abstractions of cement, blown by the wind, drowned in fog, the dense and moving facades stand out, without foundation, without sky, like immense painted backdrops of a theater set. The actors - the passers-by - come and go in this fluid mass where one moves to live. Their appearance is furtive. Their actions are made up of simple gestures, reduced to the choreography of silence and the harmony of chaos.

    Paul Cupido – Mukayu (Book + First edition)

    "An empty room will be filled with light by its emptiness. This is how the concept of "Mukayu" is defined by the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi. Paul Cupido's recent, poetic and very intimate photographic work in Japan is inspired by this concept of "Mukayu", which also refers to "non-existence", to "things as they are". Mukayu is part of the larger philosophical concept of "Mu", which has been a source of inspiration for Paul Cupido since his first artist book Searching for Mu. Mu could be translated as "not having" or "letting go". Through his images, Paul Cupido explores the themes of emptiness, metamorphosis, transience, and ephemerality in relation to our emotional experiences. His images, true visual poems, sometimes melancholic and surrealist, question our relationship to reality and our ability to dream. His desire to understand and embrace nature permeates his work, which is nourished by his native island, Terschelling, and the bond between its inhabitants and nature. The double-booklet system allows for a multitude of image associations, printed on 4 types of paper. Mukayu is a book that offers an emotional experience, just like the artist's organic works, that can be felt, like a meditation.

    Margaret Lansink – Borders of Nothingness – On the Mend

    In Borders of Nothingness, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink (b. 1961) explores the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter's decision to suspend all contact with her, photographing landscapes and naked women whose ephemeral presence questions the same torment: is this the moment you left? Over time, Lansink and her daughter reconnected in an attempt to mend their relationship. Lansink then revisited and reinterpreted Borders of Nothingness to materially reflect their emotional efforts to heal. Inspired by the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics with gold leaf, she gathers her images, tears them apart and then glues them back together with gold leaf to give hope to the possibility of recreating a bond that is all the stronger and more beautiful for having once been broken.

    Aurore Bagarry – Roches

    Going, on the French side, from Calais to Brest and passing by Varengeville, the Pointe du Hoc, Cape Levi in the Cotentin and a number of towns in Finistère and Côtes-d'Armor, Aurore Bagarry photographed a landscape "at point-blank range", to use an expression that can justify the notion of photographic shooting, but that says well the sensation of brutal presence felt when looking at these images. In England, on the other side of the Channel, in the same way, the artist has symmetrically travelled westwards along the coast from Eastbourne to Lizard Point in Cornwall, and then, having reached the end of the peninsula, back to Maer Cliff near Bude, in the north-west of Dartmoor National Park, opposite Wales. What we see here is of an indeterminate nature and is as much a topographic survey as a landscape photograph. There is very little sky, if any, in these images, which are almost impossible to locate unless one has located on a map the place where they were taken. Whether one is in France or on the other side of the Channel, nothing allows one to really understand it. The coast seems to be a gigantic palette on which the sea has tried its colors: the mauves marry with the yellows and the greens of chlorophyll and mud mixed, the leprous ochres sprout of dwarf bushes, the greys notched of bluish depressions seem to incline under the push of the winds, the dark sandstones veined of pink cut out on the gray sky, the cliffs raise the crenellated profile of their white walls stripped by the salt, their turrets topped with short grass, sometimes stained with dark lichen, or streaked with vertical bands drawn by the runoff.

    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.

    Eric le Brun – Un lion derrière la vitre

    From Venice to Istanbul, then Jerusalem, Alexandria, Sarajevo and back to Cordoba, Eric LE BRUN's texts appear and circulate between his own photographs. He draws the outline of a vast country of the sea where, in the course of history, softness and threat alternate and spread. In the guard of the book, the old songs and the poems of Anouar BENMALEK chosen and interpreted by Emmanuelle BUNEL for "Un lion derrière la vitre", join and specify the framework of the whole: in the borders of the legends and the stories, in the east as in the west, the cities survive to the men who create them or mistreat them, like arrows thrown in the passage of time. The preface is written by Anouar BENMALEK, an Algerian writer often described as the Mediterranean Faulkner by the literary press. The CD is included in the guard. Multilingual edition: each text in French is translated into English and into the language of the city.

    Naoya Hatakeyama
 – Terrils

    The origin of the word "Terril" is rather mysterious and divides historians. Its sonic force is a good representation of the earth extracted, raised. Like blocks of memory, their silhouettes mark the landscape of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais mining basin. An artist sensitive to geographical and industrial transformations, Naoya Hatakeyama crisscrossed these large spaces in 2009, flush with the sky. As a photographer of precision, he made an astonishing journey between the black mountains. Following him, he takes us through the mastery of lights, framing, in his deep images that evoke other worlds, Canada, Iceland, the Camargue ... The slag heap, often ignored or bypassed, takes the central place in the landscapes transmitted by Naoya Hatakeyama. Standing on the flat country, it acts as a call, an imaginary jump.

    Jean-Christophe Hanché – Les enfermés

    Les Enfermés is a book that takes the reader to the other side of our society. In prison, in psychiatric hospitals, in detention centers... Based on the photographic observations of Jean-Christophe Hanché, photographer and controller of places of deprivation of liberty, the book is instructive, shocking and sincere on the often undignified living conditions, reported from these little visible places. All the images are regularly corroborated by terrible extracts of letters sent by the prisoners to the CGLPL, and by argued extracts of visit reports or emergency recommendations issued by the CGLPL. Thus, a "landscape of the gap" takes shape that the book shows, the raw reality of the places where the prisoners live. Adeline Hazan, head of the CGLPL, signs a committed preface, in the image of the courageous action she is leading. "This book is both a vehicle for information and a lever for improving the situation of persons deprived of their liberty. [In the light of the images, observations and testimonies contained in this book, I invite the reader to ask himself whether the conditions of confinement that France has experienced over the last ten years are a relevant preparation for a return to freedom for the 'locked up'." Adeline Hazan "To have access to places of confinement, for as long as necessary, without any restriction of access, is a rare opportunity in my profession as a photographer. I kept telling myself that in order to give an account of what I saw as closely as possible, as accurately as possible, without adding or subtracting anything. [The sensitive immersion in most of my photographs is not due to my audacity or to a reckless commitment, but only to the time, invisible and patient, of meeting the people who become the subjects of my images. If confinement is unfortunately the main means of punishment, it is also the most excluding. [...] Photographing these people allows me to take them out of invisibility to the outside world, to turn their situation towards a salutary outside, thus highlighting their fundamental rights." - Jean-Christophe Hanché

    Frédéric Cornu – La Ligne d’eau

    The Water Line is published in connection with the author's solo exhibition at the Institut Pour la Photographie from September 10 to November 15, 2020. The series focuses on the construction project of the Seine-North Canal, which raises questions about major development projects across the landscape of northern France. This North-Seine axis, rich in history, a front line during the First World War, will trace a new water line in the heart of this territory, the stakes of which will be as much cultural, economic and geographical. In the spirit of the photographic work commissioned by the Observatoire Photographique du Paysage, Frédéric Cornu travels through the rural areas affected by the canal's route and takes stock of the situation in order to measure the landscape impacts. This work is part of this new documentary approach, in which the author's eye is sensitive to the imprint of human activity on the landscape. The project has benefited from the support of the Hauts-de-France Region and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques.

    Naoya Hatakeyama – Kesengawa

    March 11, 2011 - From the very first pages, Naoya HATAKEYAMA, a photographer, speaks to us, sharing his actions, his impressions, his feelings, at a time when his life as a man is in danger of being turned upside down. He writes his diary, on his way to the North of Japan, after the announcement of the tsunami which submerged the coastal cities. His mind is preoccupied with the fate of his family and friends. Up there, there is the house where his mother lives on the banks of the Kesen River, there is the society of the inhabitants who celebrate the same rituals every year, there is the metal bridge like a stable figure on the passing of time. There are Naoya's memories. The first part of the book is the story of Naoya HATAKEYAMA's journey to the North, a motorcycle journey made difficult by the lack of fuel, the snow, the detours imposed by the destroyed accesses. Parallel to the text, images of happy days in his city, Rikuzentakata, the days of vacations, scroll by. These are the photographs that he began to take in large format, a few years ago, of his native country, thinking that they were a way for him to maintain his own reflection on the past, on time. These images, these memories, suddenly become unique testimonies of what will have disappeared. The first part of the book is a logbook that gathers the thoughts, gestures, memories, and images of Naoya HATAKEYAMA on his way to a new encounter with his destroyed city. The second part has no text, only the photographs after the disaster are shown. The extent of the erasure creates amazement, both for Naoya HATAKEYAMA who discovers it and for the reader who accompanies him. Finally, the essential afterword allows the photographer, and no doubt anyone confronted with an equivalent tragedy, to lay the stones of a possible consolation, between memory and transmission. Naoya HATAKEYAMA's entire photographic work is oriented towards the harmonic search between human and natural landscapes. From UNDERGROUND, one of his first books, which reveals unprecedented views of underground and urban rivers, to the astonishing work BLAST, a stunning account of quarry explosions, Naoya has never stopped questioning the boundary between human activity and natural cover. With patience, he explores the industrial traces in ATMOS, LIME WORKS or TERRILS. This last book was also published by LIGHT MOTIV. It is this same man, placed in an observation outpost, who sees an unexpected cataclysm, of a terrible silent brutality, arise in his own life. Without human cause, without divine explanation. It is this man, photographer and watchman, who continues to watch, without understanding the sanction of the chance that overwhelms him, and other men with him. It is this man who inscribes life, the thought of life, in the derisory harmony, and so human, in solidarity, that he finds on every subject he photographs. Since the disaster, Naoya HATAKEYAMA has been involved in the action launched by Toyo Ito's architecture studio in order to invent places of resource and appeasement for the tsunami survivors. The "Home-for-all" house built by Toyo Ito's studio in Rikuzentakata was presented in conjunction with Naoya's photographs at the Venice Architecture Biennale in September 2012 and was awarded the Golden Lion at this event.

    Corentin Fohlen – Karnaval Jacmel

    Every year, in the city of Jacmel in the south of Haiti, takes place the most important carnival of the country, during the Gras. Most of the inhabitants create and renew their costumes, freely inspired by everything that crosses the Haitian reality and imagination. Since 2014, thanks to this intangible and artistic heritage, Jacmel has been recognized as a creative city of crafts and popular arts by UNESCO. To transmit this magic, Corentin Fohlen chose to isolate each character of the carnival crowd by installing his studio outdoors, and by composing each time its own light. His amazing and precise work reveals beyond the beauty of the costumes, the inventive talent of a people always on their feet. This work was done in 2016 and 2017 during the Jacmel carnival parade, a street photo studio set up for the occasion; it was published in GÉO, LA VIE, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.COM, RENDEZ-VOUS PHOTOS, LFI (Leica Fotografie International), A/R magazine traveler.

    Charles Delcourt – Isle of Eigg

    Eigg is part of the Inner Hebrides archipelago. In 1997, the inhabitants bought back their land together from the Lord who owned it. June 12 was declared Independence Day on this territory of 35 square kilometers, where about forty families now live, all concerned with the governance and fate of the island. Since 2007, the island is in complete autonomy thanks to sustainable resources (hydroelectric, wind and solar). This autonomous territory emerges as a utopian skiff in the world of shared information, a skiff in motion at a time of growing climate concerns. The island of Eigg offers a possibility, a solid local alternative in a drifting world that is simultaneously looking for the lost paradise and the future path. When he landed on Eigg in 2015, Charles Delcourt felt a kind of love at first sight, like a call. Both for the magnificent landscapes of this Scottish island but also and above all for the way of life, rough and committed that the inhabitants develop. During his regular stays on the island, he discovered and documented their way of life. The book is conceived as a gradual acclimatization to the nature of the island, a gradual increase in the surprise and variety of both the landscapes and the inhabitants. It leads the reader to discover a different way of living collectively.
