    Yohanne Lamoulère – Faux Bourgs

    Marseille in the lens of Yohanne Lamoulère : a decade of intuitive and sensitive observation. Marseille fascinates as much as it disturbs. Since 2009, Yohanne Lamoulère has been tracking the city's upheavals, portraying its disasters and shattering its representations in order to better reinvent them in the company of those who live there. The photographer roots her obsessions in it: the peripheral neighborhoods - which are for her the vibrant heart of the city -, youth, self-image and the identity link that one maintains with one's territory. Everything here is shown of the reality of relegated neighborhoods, with the precision tinged with poetry of those who know what they are photographing. In the end, it is indeed a particular energy that emerges from these "false towns" and testifies to their universal belonging to untouched worlds, those from which possibilities, love and dreams emerge.

    Kourtney Roy – The Tourist

    "Some contexts make our intentions so clear that we don't even need to express them to be understood. With The Tourist, Kourtney Roy once again distinguishes herself as a virtuoso of contextual creation. The Tourist contains all the Roy trademarks we have come to love and expect: self-portraiture, a cinematic approach, her distinctive color palette, and a tension between the witty and the sinister, the conventional and the bizarre, the chic and the fake. We also discover with pleasure that the boundaries between reality and fantasy are blurred. But the outstanding quality of The Tourist lies in the meticulous organization of the moment when we leave our extensive world and enter his intensive one. Roy creates a visual metaphor for a world we think we know. Yet his masterful use of juxtaposition tells us that this is not the world we thought it was. The details are meticulously chiseled and arranged, the scenes both familiar and strange. The diving mask over the mouth from which a cigarette hangs, the pool boy's mop abandoned near a fake temple; the furry mules near the water are never a good idea, nor are the stilettos on the slippery edge of a pool. The overall effect is that of a big hammer blow to the vacation cliché. According to many studies, most people prefer the anticipation and memory to the actual experience of their vacation. That's why photos are so important to them. They eliminate disappointment and create a pearly memory of pleasures that never happened. Roy reverses the ritual by taking us to a setting that is seemingly glamorous, but is actually much closer to our own experience: one-night stands turned into romantic affairs; boredom that leads to emptying a bottle of booze in an extreme version of the cocktail enjoyed poolside; ice cream that melts and sinks among the knock-off jewelry; a sense of trepidation, as if someone is about to yell "Shark!", but not to signal the presence of a turquoise plastic bladder..."

    Pierre de Vallombreuse – Badjaos

    Lost on the borders of northern Borneo, Indonesia's Sulawesi archipelago and the southern Philippines, sailing the Sulu and Sulawesi Seas, thousands of nomads in the Badjao Sea are seeing their way of life threatened, as are their sedentary cousins and all the people of the region who make a living from fishing on the shoals. Millions of people are concerned. In this region, a real powder keg, where pirates, Muslim extremists now linked to Daesh, corrupt police officers, traffickers of all kinds (human, drugs, cigarettes, weapons ...), these few thousands of stateless nomads try to survive, victims of these armed groups.

    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.

    Albarrán Cabrera – Pale Blue • 95.00

    Pale Blue · is a tribute to an emblematic photograph and an emblematic character, the astronomer Carl Sagan.

    This photograph is the one showing the planet Earth, taken on February 14, 1990 by the space probe Voyager 1 at a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers, part of the Family Portrait (set of photographs of the solar system taken that day). It is called A Pale Blue Dot, after the title of a book inspired by this photograph, written in 1994 by Carl Sagan, because the Earth appears in it as a tiny blue dot. The book Pale Blue - by Albarrán Cabrera is a symbolic journey starting from the origins of the planet Earth. The different layers of this Earth help humanity to better understand its own origins and evolution, and this "memory" seems to want to tell him that their destinies are inseparable, but that it is the responsibility of humanity to "preserve and cherish this pale blue dot, the only home it has ever known.

    Rémi Coignet – Conversations, vol.3

    Conversations is a book of interviews with contemporary photographers, conducted by Rémi Coignet, photo book critic. Since 2014, when the first volume was published, the aim has been to give a prominent place to photographers, so that they can make their voices heard in the publishing field, often forgotten in favor of those of critics, journalists and curators. Photographers, editors and graphic designers are invited to revisit their work and reveal their intentions. In the course of these interviews, a geography of contemporary photography is sketched out, in the continuity of the two previous volumes, Conversations, published in 2015, and Conversations 2, published in 2016. This third volume focuses on photographers who are particularly interested in publishing and editorial work. The photographers discuss their editorial project, their vision of the photo book and its importance in their photographic practice. Rémi Coignet also interviews photo book publishers to give voice to an underrepresented sector. Interviews with : Laurence Aëgerter Julian Baron Sophie Calle Edmund Clark Antoine d'Agata Amaury da Cunha Mishka Henner William Klein Susan Meiselas Pino Musi Sophie Ristelhueber Dayanita Singh Carlos Sporttorno Kajta Stuke & Oliver Sieber Pierre von Kleist Donovan Wylie

    Raphaël Dallaporta – Équation du Temps

    Équation du Temps restores an experiment both artistic and scientific initiated in 2018 at Paris Observatory by photographer Raphaël Dallaporta. Conducted jointly with researchers from Syrte (Système de Références Temps-Espaces) at Paris Observatory, the "Equation of Time" experiment aims to verify the differences between true solar time, indicated by sundials, and mean solar time, indicated by clocks. While the meridian of the true solar time is a straight line, the meridian of the mean solar time has the shape of an elongated eight. During one year, Raphaël Dallaporta realized every day at midday a shot of the image of the sun entering the Cassini room of the Paris Observatory. The accumulation over the year reveals the 8-curve of the equation of time ∞ figured by the image of the Sun on the Earth. About the equation of time The equation of time is a concept that reflects the inequalities of solar time. The notion of "mean solar time" corresponds to an ideal, fictitious time when the Sun returns in the same direction after 24 h. Every day when the Sun is visible, the Sun passes at the meridian of the observatory, in this Cassini room. One sees there this spot of light which cuts the meridian of Paris at the solar noon. Each of the first 365 pages of this book is centered on the position of the image of the Sun at the time of its passage at the local midday in the Cassini room of the Paris Observatory (48°50'11''N - 02°20'14''E). The shots were taken by Raphaël Dallaporta at the eyecup located at 9.933 m south of the meridian. From this point of view, the image of the Sun appears circular, the perspective reducing the variations of its elliptic projection during the year. The astronomer and historian of science Denis Savoie explains in the following pages the principles of the equation of time, according to the drawing of the figure eight curve when the revolution of the Earth around the Sun after one year is accomplished. Conceived as a playful flip book object by the studio Kummer & Herrman, the reader discovers the figure eight curve that is formed over the pages. In the afterword, the astronomer Denis Savoie explains the principles of the equation of time, according to the curve in eight, the revolution of the Earth around the Sun after one year. The book was produced as part of the Niépce Gens d'Images Prize, of which The Eyes Publishing is a patron since 2019, in collaboration with Picto Foundation.

    Antoine d’Agata – Francis Bacon

    Aesthetic parallel of two visceral works. This bilingual French-English double-book is a collection of 27 photographs by Antoine d'Agata and 25 graphic works by Francis Bacon. It establishes an artistic parallel between the contemporary work of photographer Antoine d'Agata and the expressionist painting of painter Francis Bacon. The two books, bound together, can be consulted side by side, creating a vis à vis between the works of the two artists. The texts are presented in independent notebooks so that it is possible to read the text while browsing the visual narrative. Antoine d'Agata is a photographer who lives on the edge. He immerses himself in his personal worlds, until he exhausts them. He transforms reality with the help of time, and shows us facts, events, mixed textures or diffuse colors that shape human forms that get lost. We perceive in some of Francis Bacon's works these photographs of D'Agata, the same worlds full of chiaroscuro, of continuous ups and downs towards hell, and this attempt to lengthen the moment of elation or solitude. Does the deformation of the bodies, caused by the trembling of the images, go as far as the dehumanization familiar to the painter? Antoine d'Agata would undoubtedly not refuse to affirm it. Is it not precisely the animality that he claims with insistence of the sexual relations that he photographs. Gilles Deleuze, philosopher, would have spoken of his "becoming-animal", a becoming-dog, to be precise. Integral part of his work, the man and the work struggle to exist. A chromatic struggle that is reminiscent of the colors of Francis Bacon, whose deformed flesh is also found, as if spread-evaporated. After a book devoted to the correspondence between the portraits of photographers Nan Goldin and Julia Margaret Cameron with the historian and collector Marwan T. Assaf, in this second volume, The Eyes Publishing proposes an encounter between the works of Antoine d'Agata and Francis Bacon with the complicity of the author Perrine Le Querrec, the art critic Léa Bismuth and the gallery owner Bruno Sabatier.

    Mathias Depardon – Transanatolia

    TRANSANATOLIA is a peregrination to the borders of Anatolia. For 5 years, Mathias Depardon has been photographing the new Turkey, right up to the borders of the Caucasus. From the recently settled urban areas in the west of Istanbul to Turkish Kurdistan, where a civil revolution is brewing and a real water war is raging, he questions the notion of peripheries and borders. These remote places help to understand the great mutations that agitate the region. Through portraits and landscapes, Mathias Depardon probes a country torn between modernization and Ottoman reminiscence. The "New Turkey" of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in power since 2003, is the affirmation of a power and an ambition. Thanks to its strategic geographical location and imperial history, Turkey wants to play a central role in the march of the world. Erdoğan sees himself as the caliph of a vast Turkish-Islamic space whose contours, "the borders of the heart," evoke a mythologized past. The fragmentation of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War remains a trauma and the Turkish leader imposes an authoritarian, paternalistic and police state to regain the lost territories. The method is often brutal. The transformation of society that he imposed was radical. In this book, Mathias Depardon attempts to image the borders of the heart evoked by the Turkish President. To probe the "Turkish soul" and perceive the complexity of its identity construction, one must project oneself to its borders and even beyond. In Azerbaijan or in Crimea, Turkey remains the "mother country". It radiates, spreads its "soft power" from the Balkans to Asia, from the Black Sea to the Red Sea. It exports its washing machines and its very popular television series to dozens of countries. Its influence extends to all the former Ottoman territories and, beyond, to the borders of China, in Central Asia, the distant homeland of the Turkish people.

    Myop – Sine Die

    (*without seeing the end) A photographic chronicle, conceived as a line, to document this historical moment. An artistic, plural and collective response to remember the common time of the pandemic and the containment. Every day, since the announcement of the containment, on March 15th 2020, the photographers of the MYOP agency put together their images of the day before. Each day, 6 to 10 images are selected and sequenced together in the form of a line highlighting the richness of situations, statements and photographic writing. Each day the "line" formed by these images is posted on instagram, thus drawing, like a leporello, a vast temporal fresco. Every day... sine die. The work takes the form of a leporello of 120 pages with on one side an image per page and per day or 56 images and on the back we find the complete selection of images in their chronology from D to D + 55. Michel Poivert was freely inspired to write a series of photographic anti-legends.

    Didier Bizet – Le grand mensonge

    Travel to North Korea, the country where everything is true, but false. A trip to another world, which as soon as you cross its border transforms you into a visitor of the strange, can only be the one in North Korea. Officially "Democratic People's Republic of Korea", this country is the most secret state on the planet. Ruled since 2011 by Kim Jong-un, son and grandson of the previous leaders, the nation's official doctrine is Juche, based on autocracy and self-sufficiency whether military, economic or political. And that's about all we can say with certainty about this country... My photographs are an ironic metamorphosis of North Korean daily life. "The Truth if I Lie" or "The Big Lie" is a projection into the absurd, a ballad into the unreal or the real, it's up to you! This book is a photographic fable, a nonsense full of meaning, a satire of the true false, a visual poetry that changes the norm and that suspects Pyongyang of leading us astray. North Korea has invented the offbeat reality to keep us on our toes. Behind this great masquerade with benevolent decorations, where is this affabulation?

    Cyril Abad – In god we trust

    A journey into the eccentricities of faith in the United States. I grew up in a non-practicing Catholic family environment and I experienced, after having loosely validated certain stages of the Christian "curriculum", a form of emancipation. But the religious question has always aroused my curiosity. In 2016, when I was struggling to find new ideas for stories, I went back to reading Douglas Kennedy's 1993 documentary In god'country, a mocking immersion in the world of Christian fundamentalism along the Bible Belt in the southern United States. When I walk the streets of the Tenderloin, it's in search of C. Card, the loser detective, an unusual character in Richard Brautigan's A Private in Babylon, and when I walk under the damp, fragrant foliage of the Appalachian forests, it's because Ron Rash's words have led me there.

    Miho Kajioka – So it goes

    This edition is a revised and simplified version of the 2019 Nadar Prize winning book so it goes. In this book, Miho Kajioka presents work relating to the concepts of time, memory, and place. As in her previous works, the series reveals intuitive images of fragments of her everyday life, in different eras. Miho Kajioka's interest in this subject was sparked by reading Kurt Vonnegut's novel Slaughterhouse-five. Miho Kajioka has long been fascinated by the chronology and meaning of events. According to her, photography captures moments and freezes them; displaying impressions is like playing with the sense of time and getting lost in that chronology.

    Sète#20 – Clémentine Schneidermann

    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 the subject of a book. In 2020 the carte blanche is entrusted to Clémentine Schneidermann. At the crossroads of fashion and documentary, this young artist plays with the codes of both disciplines by mixing reality and fantasy. In Sète, she boldly set off in the footsteps of Georges Brassens, a native of the "singular island" and an unavoidable figure in the local imagination. The places he frequented, the groupies of the first hour, the last friends of the poet-singer, his look-alikes, nothing escapes the photographer who metamorphoses Sète with humor and poetry, revealing, beyond the attachment to the singer, a whole part of the popular culture of the city.

    Sète#19 – Vanessa Winship

    ImageSingulières is a festival of documentary photography created in 2009 in Sète. Each year, a renowned photographer is invited to look at the city and gradually build a portrait of it. Photographers as well known and different as Anders Petersen, Richard Dumas, Bieke Depoorter or Stéphane Couturier have lent themselves to the game. All of them have given birth to a photographic series, each of which was the subject of a book. A remarkable collection, like a lesson in photography, showing that there are multiple visual writings and thus revealing the different facets of contemporary photography. The 11th carte blanche has been entrusted to the portrait and documentary photographer Vanessa Winship, known for her long-term work, particularly in the Balkans, Anatolia or the United States, where she tracks the jolts of reality with immense sensitivity in landscapes and portraits. It is therefore in Sète that the photographer continues her rigorous work, both classic and contemporary, through which she seeks, by listening, to understand how the link between a territory and a person is articulated. It is in Sète, but it could also be elsewhere, as her vision is personal and can be seen as a winter stroll with melancholic and sweet accents. As with all the titles in the collection, Christian Caujolle, critic, international curator and artistic director of the ImageSingulières festival, accompanies this body of images with a text.

    Delphine Parodi – Out of Sight

    The Fukushima nuclear disaster has permanently disrupted the once intense relationships between individuals, their communities and the cycles of nature. How then to live in a new environment? This is the question that this book evokes in a dialogue with several voices: that of the photographer Delphine Parodi, whose diptychs, between intimate landscapes and portraits of inhabitants, suggest the alteration of their relationship to place and the importance of individual memory. And the Japanese writer Yoko Tawada who, with 24 poems brought back from Fukushima, achieves a subtle balance between visible and invisible. By giving form to what remains a constant but imperceptible threat, this book is a universal reminder to the collective conscience in times of pandemic.

    Adrien Selbert – Les bords rééls

    The Bosnian war ended 25 years ago and the country seems to be plunged into a lethargy where everyone is wandering in their own time and in their beliefs. The dead and the living, the Bosnians, the Serbs and the Croats, the veterans of the conflict and the youth born in its rubble. Bosnia revives old demons, plays with fire. It is no longer war, it is not peace. How to translate into photography the strange feeling of a time that never ends dying, the muted violence that runs through the country? How to summon the ghosts that stand in the background of the images? In this sense, this work is a state of time, more than a state of the place. The Real Edges is the image of Bosnia today: fragmentary, ghostly, disoriented, vibrant and chaotic at the same time. The photographer takes the bodies as witnesses. Gestures and postures translate the way the country stands, revealing the splintering into myriad communities and beliefs, as if after a blast. By investing this evanescent territory, it is the very limits of his practice - documentary photography - that Adrien Selbert challenges here.

    When she was a child, Shiraz Bazin-Moussi spent her summer vacations with her family on the Kerkennah Islands, a rural and preserved Tunisian archipelago, where Farhat Hached, the independence leader assassinated in 1952, was born. A few years ago, she discovered that Google had forgotten to "map" one of the islands of the archipelago and that it had disappeared! Since then, the oblivion has been repaired, but the photographer has returned to the traces of her childhood, in search of the carefree images that her memory has blurred, just as the official images of the Tunisian national narrative were at the time of colonization, and then of the dictatorship. Using the Fresson printing process, she manages to give her photographs a dreamlike character and also questions the relationship between cartography and power.

    Denis Dailleux – Juliette

    In Denis Dailleux's childhood village, in Anjou, lived a woman of character, a true character of a novel: Juliette, his great-aunt, who died in 2017 at the age of 100. Between the photographer and his model, between the old woman and the young man, a unique complicity has established for more than 15 years a serious and funny game, a mixture of seduction, harshness and malice. Like a model, Juliette accepts Denis' stagings which take advantage of the farm's decor, play with objects and plants. Over the years, the photographs become more daring and reveal an unexpected personality that seems to blossom under the lens. Through Juliette's portraits, magnificent in their accuracy, the reality of a modest and precarious rural world appears, with its social codes and values, where harshness sometimes prevails over wisdom. With her strong character and her refusal to accept what others say, Juliette is a resilient person, driven by her intuition and a sensitive intelligence. From then on, the act of photographing becomes a tribute to a modest but vibrantly human existence.

    Geoffroy Mathieu – La mauvaise réputation

    The bad reputation is the latest work of photographer Geoffroy Mathieu. If at the beginning of the twentieth century the Aygalades stream was still a place of vacation, a century of urbanization and industrialization have taken away its continuity, its flow and its ecological balance to such an extent that some inhabitants have even forgotten its existence. Thus, in 2017, an expedition made up of artists, residents, researchers, and developers undertook an ascent with their feet in the water of the stream. They were all seized by the hidden beauties of the Aygalades. At the bottom of the bed of this damaged river, between two bushed segments, unfolds a space of luxuriant nature flooded with a zenithal light in which the primary colors of waste, plastics and heterogeneous objects, form with the vegetation paradoxical pictures. In Geoffroy Mathieu's photographs, bursting with color and extremely precise composition, the creek thus becomes a motive for poetic speculation on issues related to ecology, land use, and public space.
