    Stéphanie Solinas – Dominique Lambert

    Dominique is the most common mixed name in France, and the twenty-seventh most common. Combining it with Lambert, the twenty-seventh most common surname, Stéphanie Solinas defined as her study population the one hundred and ninety-one Dominique Lambert listed in the private individuals' directory (Pages Blanches, France). She asked each of them by mail to fill out a Chinese portrait. From this, for the Dominique Lambert who responded, she elaborated a written portrait, with the help of the Advisory Committee for the Description of the Dominique Lambert (composed of a psychologist, a statistician, a police inspector, and a lawyer). This text formed the basis for the portrait drawn by the painter Benoît Bonnemaison-Fitte. The drawn portrait was then transformed into a sketch by Dominique Ledée, a police investigator from the Identité Judiciaire. Stéphanie Solinas then looked for a model with an obvious resemblance to the composite portrait to photograph. Slipped into the book jacket, a crystal pocket contains the identity photos of the "real" Dominique Lambert, author of the Chinese portraits, and thus closes the chain of representations imagined by the artist.

    David de Beyter – Damaged Inc.

    For three years, David de Beyter followed the "Big Bangers", a community in Northern Europe that practices car crashing as a way of life. On the circuits, the parking lots, the bare fields, the artist captured the essence of a practice that shapes the landscapes of his childhood. This long-term project mixing films, photographs and sculptures will result in 3 editions (2 books and a vinyl). Damaged Inc. the first one, with its black and white printing, its double-page collages that render the cars by fragments, and the slogans that illustrate the philosophy of the followers of this practice, is directly inspired by the aesthetics of the original fanzines created by the "Big Bangers".

    Erwin Wurm – Photographs

    Erwin Wurm Photographs is published on the occasion of the first retrospective devoted by the Maison Européenne de la Photographie to his photographic practice. The book sheds light on the work of Erwin Wurm, an internationally renowned artist, from this new perspective. Bringing together some 600 photographs taken since the late 1980s, this comprehensive publication will also present original contact sheets and prints from the artist's personal archives, which have never before been made public. The book explores the artistic process by which the Austrian artist created such major works as the Dust Sculptures, Fabio Getting Dressed, and the famous One-Minute Sculptures, as well as recent large-format Polaroids. This monograph highlights the unique role played by the photographic medium in Wurm's work: far more than a means of immortalizing his performances, photography is for him a form of "sculptural" expression in its own right. Erwin Wurm was born in 1954 in Austria. He lives and works between Vienna and Limberg.

    Laurence Aëgerter – Cathédrales

    The book Cathedrals and Churches of France, published in 1949 by the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Tourism, is the origin of Laurence Aëgerter's Cathedrals facsimile. The artist placed the work near the window of her studio, and allowed the incidence of natural light to affect a reproduction of the facade of the Cathedral of Saint-Etienne in Bourges. She then re-photographed the image every minute for two hours, obtaining one hundred and twenty photographs of light variations on this single image. The play of light and shadow that outlines the Gothic architecture in the original photograph is superimposed by a new shadow that slowly evolves over the cathedral and, in an almost imperceptible but irremediable way, ends up engulfing it. Aëgerter's photographs thus contain three times.

    Hassan Hajjaj

    From the diversity of his influences, Hassan Hajjaj, Anglo-Moroccan artist, has created a form of artistic crossbreeding, a whimsical and eccentric universe that engages in a dialogue between tradition and modernity, culture and pop culture. Known for his ultra-colored portraits at the border between documentary practice and fashion photography, he also associates in his compositions African loincloths, cans, logos or monograms diverted. He thus elaborates a kind of visual reappropriation of globalized consumer products and proposes a critical interpretation of oriental exoticism. Simply titled Hassan Hajjaj, this book published on the occasion of the retrospective that the MEP is devoting to him in September 2019, is the first major monograph devoted to his work. It includes all of the series that have made him famous as well as his previously unpublished B/W work.

    Mazaccio & Drowilal – The happiness project

    In 2014, the artists Mazaccio and Drowilal travelled to Silicon Valley in California, the now mythical territory where the majority of the digital tools we use daily are designed. The book The Happiness Project- A journey through Silicon Valley - restores in the form of a photographic sequence, the subjective and chromatic documentary of this trip. It is about counter-culture and the link that computers have with it, but also about New Age, ecological awareness, or intensive sports practice. The still lifes, a kind of contemporary vanity that punctuates the work, symbolize the Californian ideology and the relationship to work maintained within the companies of this region.

    Tomoko Sawada – Recruit

    Following in the footsteps of Cindy Sherman, Tomoko Sawada embodies the second generation of female artists who choose the photographic mise-en-scène to explore the question of identity and denounce contemporary cultural conventions. This young Japanese artist is particularly interested in the photographic practice within our society such as class, wedding or fashion studio photography. She disguises herself as a multitude of characters to bring out the stereotypes of these customs and habits. With Recruit, Tomoko Sawada continues her work on self-portraiture in contemporary Japanese society. This time she explores the identity photographs that Japanese students take at the end of their studies, in order to look for a job. She has kept the established formal conventions (costume, posture, neutral facial expression), but to thwart them by introducing a subtle variation. From a strict photographic device, taking up the codes of the photo booth (a light always similar, an invariant framing, the same pose), she multiplies the images by playing on her hairstyle, her make-up, and the expression given to her face. She amazes by the difference she makes possible and visible on her face, and demonstrates the relative character of all appearance. Arranged in a grid in the book, the three portrait plates offer a global vision of their number, at the same time as they invite the eye to scroll from one face to another.

    Tiane Doan na Champassak – Censored

    For the past ten years, Tiane Doan na Champassak has been collecting Thai erotic magazines dating from the 60s and 70s. As nudity in magazines was forbidden at the time, the photographs were censored with care and creativity. The artist used his collection of over 4000 photographic details to create the book Censored addressing the themes of eroticism and censorship. An Instagram account dedicated to the 4200 photographs of the Censored project was created in July 2017. This principle of censorship today very common on social networks takes on a particular content with these images from the 1960s-70s. www.instagram.com/censored.book

    Thomas Mailaender – Gone Fishing

    Gone Fishing tells, in the form of a collection of fictitious correspondences, the modern epic of a young man who prefers vacations with friends to his new responsibilities as a father. In the course of the letters, Thomas Mailaender paints an unflattering portrait of a teenage Ulysses more inspired by beer, big game fishing and ping-pong than by the joys of fatherhood. Each of the 19 letters collected here is illustrated with a portrait of the young father performing a feat of appalling banality to excuse his absence. These images are photomontages made by the artist from amateur photos collected on the internet.

    Erwin Wurm – Self-Portrait as 47 Pickles

    The pickle is a recurring figure in Erwin Wurm's work. In 2008, he created an installation entitled Selbstportät all Gurken (Self-portrait in gherkins), in which he placed all the gherkins from the contents of a jar, replicated in painted resin, on their pedestals. Each condiment was then photographed with the same shooting protocol. The artist's book Self-Portrait as 47 Pickles brings together this series.

    Michaël Duperrin – Odysseus, l’Autre monde

    The Odyssey is the story of a man who wants to return home and discover the world of others at the same time. Ulysses holds both ends of his desire, at the cost of ten years of wandering. It is himself that he discovers at the end of the road. If the ancient epic still speaks to us, it is because it deals with current issues: identity, otherness, hospitality. Since 2012, Michaël Duperrin has been visiting the supposed places of Ulysses' wanderings. He travels through multiple strata, between here and elsewhere, now and then, real and fiction, weaving echoes between mythical past and present reality. This experience is modelled on the temporality of Odysseus' return, ten years. Odysseus, the Other World retraces the first part of it, and immerses us in the world of gods, monsters, the underworld and mermaids. The photographs in Odysseus, the Other World are printed in cyanotype, one of the first photo printing processes, which owes its name to its color. While we see the Mediterranean and its intense blue sky, the word "blue" does not exist in the language of Homer. The adjective that later designates a dark blue refers in the Odyssey to the world of the Night and the Underworld, that is to say, the Other World. The international standard of printing in CMYK would not have allowed to reproduce these images well. The photo-engraver Eric Guglielmi has therefore invented for the work a process, the BMJN, in which cyan is replaced by a blue. This flow, in the middle of which a storm is unleashed, intertwines the images and the words of Michaël Duperrin. His text is woven from three threads: the story of Ulysses, what is happening today in the places of the Odyssey, and the experience of the journey, which transforms the one who takes it.

    Hélène David – Noces ou les confins sauvages

    Noces ou les confins sauvages is a photographic narrative, an invitation to the deployment of bodies, to the sensory experience, to the listening of the invisible. Since the dawn of time, the wild coastline is the place where the sea, the animals and the men dialogue. This space of porosities and encounters with the Mediterranean nature has inspired bestiaries and mythology. Noces ou les confins sauvages, a contemporary and fabulous tale, tells the story of a common future, enchanted and vulnerable. "And, so that no part of the world was frustrated of its share of living beings, the stars occupy the celestial plain, in the company of the gods with bodies; the fish with shining scales established their residence in the waves, the earth appropriated the still wild beasts, the mobile air, the birds ". The purpose of Noces or the Wilderness brings together a community of people beyond the world of photography. With a first launch in December 2017 planned at Au Bal - a place dedicated to the document image, the book will be presented at the Librairie Maritime in Marseille and at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature on January 20, 2018 as part of the Festival écouter la nature.

    Ella Vuillaumé – Hypothetical death of exarchian alpha

    Hypothetical Death Of Exarchian Alpha offers the reader the opportunity to read the sociological, historical, and political upheavals of a country, Greece, through the epigraphy on the walls of a neighborhood that has the added distinction of being one of the historical foci of the anarchist movement in Athens. This book is composed of four parts: - the diary of the author who immerses himself in the environment of his study, - the collection of photographs of Alpha letters found on the walls of the neighborhood - the different Alpha letters isolated from their context to keep only their form and their typographic interest in relation to their hypothetical death (disappearance) - a sequence of mini-disappearance scenarios e.g. Alpha disappears under a #stayhome poster, Alpha is covered by a graffiti, Alpha is covered by a poster offering courses to refugees, Alpha is ripped off by a priest, etc. The study revolves around the idea of the disappearance of the letter Alpha from the neighborhood of Exarchia and gives awareness that every thing or fact observed can be transformed by the observer. This research, transcended by the multifaceted aspect of daily life and the destinies that intersect on the walls of the neighborhood, is embodied in a graphic and anthropological detective story. The investigation Hypothetical Death Of Exarchian Alpha, while focusing on a neighborhood on a micro scale, reflects broader realities on a macro scale: the turmoil and metamorphoses that cross a country and which are not without echoing the current situation in Europe.

    Françoise Chadaillac – La reine de la patate ou les cantines du détour

    Françoise Chadaillac leaves for Quebec in 1979 to prepare a thesis, with photos, on urban spaces. While there, she was intrigued by the small wooden shacks and other recycled vehicles that, set up on the side of the road, offered hamburgers, hot dogs and fries. They are true institutions and are called "French fry stands". "Photographing these "stands" made me discover a social phenomenon, very specific to Quebec, truly anchored in the life of Quebecers. And as someone said to me during my meetings: "There is not a Quebecer who does not have a potato stand in his heart! "To each his own stand and his best potato, his best poutine, his best hot-dog or his best pogo! But above all, I met a small piece of humanity, simple, lucid, full of humor, who, speaking to us about herself, spoke to us about the whole of humanity. The words I gleaned during my shooting modified my project and appeared to me as indispensable as the images. For those who do not yet know Quebec, allow yourself this little "detour", a journey through its vast expanses. For the others, allow yourself a stroll back in time thanks to these images and words that would not have disowned the cohort of poets: the Gaston Miron, the Félix Leclerc, the Gilles Vigneault, the Robert Charlebois, the Michel Tremblay and many others who have so well known how to make their country exist and be loved by their French cousins. With this book of photos and texts, lunches at the "food truck" around the corner will inevitably have a taste and a smell of the "Belle Province".

    Lionel Jusseret – Kinderszenen

    Kinderszenen gives a glimpse of the intimacy of autistic children, their way of apprehending space and the world. It paints a portrait of so-called "autistic" children in the interlude of their vacations in the countryside. Far from the violence of the walls, this work is a dreamlike and mysterious journey, sometimes naive, which lets you discover the enigma of these "kids". In 2012, Lionel Jusseret started photographing autistic children after two years spent as an educator at the association J'interviendrais, which offers profoundly autistic children the opportunity to live in a group vacation in different country houses. It took Lionel Jusseret seven years to collect these portraits, because the physical and psychological exhaustion generated by such an accompaniment did not allow him to work for more than two consecutive weeks. "The meetings with the children, non-verbal for the most part, were of an unspeakable power. I felt like I was on a real journey into foreign territory. I liked to say that I was going to Autistan, in reference to Josef Schovanec Or at least, on the edge of Autistan. In this work, he gives a look at autism. No, autism. He explains. "According to one of my colleagues, you can't talk about autism. I mean, as a subject. Simply because we don't know much about it and it's still very broad. The word autism means everything and nothing at the same time. It is therefore difficult to talk about it. At best, we can tell stories about autistic people. The nuance is very important." This book has received the support of the Fondation l'Estacade, the Vocatio Foundation as well as the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

    Franck Gérard – En l’état

    " 1+1 = 3. It's written on the window of a women's underwear store presenting, hanging on clotheslines, pretty little panties. For the price of two, you get three. And in front of the window, an elderly couple observes this offer which, at first sight, was not addressed to them but which nevertheless fascinates them. It's a photo of Franck Gérard. It's all him. A situation that could have been staged but which is very real, well framed, clear, without any headaches, just delightful." Jean Blaise En l'état is an evolving work, a work in progress, begun on July 13, 1999 after Franck Gérard almost died. Since that date, the artist's photographic practice has radically changed: the image has become a vital, incessant act, and the thousands of photographs accumulated have come to constitute a state of seeing the world, also posing a state of the world. The notion of abundance, of too many images, asserts a presence in the world based on perception. Through an observation as methodical as hazardous of the real, linked to the wandering of the artist in the public space, Franck Gerard captures situations, without apriori nor preliminary: offering just "what he sees". More of an observer than an interventionist, the photographer's eye draws up, territory after territory, city after city, a veritable lexicon with a universal vocation where the slightest incongruous gesture, the slightest banal or extraordinary situation, the slightest incident, are listed as so many states constituting our daily life, and through it, the very movement of the world as it goes, as it is. 21 authors were invited by the artist to react to this photographic set: Dominique A, Philippe Bazin, Jean-Christophe Béchet, Jean Blaise, Ronan Bouroullec, Blandine Chavanne, Gilles Clément, Julie Corteville, Olivier Delavallade, Françoise de Maulde, Raymond Depardon, François Hébel, Jean-Yves Jouannais, Jacques Leenhardt, Laurent Le Bon, David Moinard, Jean-Luc Moulène, Michel Poivert, Mélanie Rio, Guy Tortosa, Felice Varini.

    Chris Rhodes – Hotel Mermaid Club

    Hotel Mermaid Club, Chris Rhodes' first book, is an ode to everyday life. The English photographer transforms reality to create a poetic and soothing universe full of melancholy. His sense of color and framing creates a very personal aesthetic of banality. Although the portrait in the traditional sense of the term does not appear, the book finds its humanity in the narrative, the occupied spaces and the everyday objects to which we no longer pay attention.

    Douglas Mandry – Équivalences

    Douglas Mandry explores the photographic medium in the age of digitization and the technological acceleration that follows. Still using analog processes, his interventions on the image are done by hand, either by applying different historical photographic processes, or by physically cutting and pasting them. For the Unseen Sights series that makes up the book Equivalences, the Swiss photographer was inspired by early 20ᵉ century Middle Eastern postcards, and colored large format black and white prints of landscapes in Cappadocia, Turkey, using acrylic and airbrush. These compositions then being rephotographed. Rather than reproducing these images, the book is a pretext for another interpretation. By playing with the layers of color in the print, the artist creates a new machine-generated representation, a mechanical intervention this time. The original images merge with those transformed and sketch a sequence claiming non-narration. Its title pays homage to Stieglitz's famous "Equivalents" series of vertically shot images of pieces of sky and clouds, known as the first series of abstract photographs. Douglas Mandry is a young Swiss photographer. A 2013 graduate of Ecal, he combines his photography practice with plastic reflection. By mixing visual elements and color, Douglas creates images that lie between art, sculpture and still life.
