    Stéphane Mahé – Somewhere

    Stéphane Mahé photographs as he likes to get lost, with the greed of abandonment. His series of 37 photographs takes us into the maze of alleys that lead to dead-end shores. The photographic material is triturated, kneaded, and the granulation becomes language. The work includes an original text by Arnaud Le Gouëfflec, like a mise en abyme extending our wandering. "It is a place where time fades. A place where the physical contours of the matter fade away. Is there a place for reality in these images of Stéphane Mahé? No. Somewhere is a remarkable work, almost spiritual, which opens a window on an impalpable elsewhere. An inaccessible place whose photography echoes, somewhere behind the artist's retina, where everything is at stake. First the perception, then the emotion, the intention and finally the gesture. Stéphane Mahé wants to "feel the life" that surrounds him to "capture its essence". Somewhere is a sequence of images that are articulated like a feverish breath. The talent of the photographer is to have been able to amplify the intensity of these moments of existence that he modestly gleans. For him, photography is an epiphany of being. He is not content to show, he inspires. Marie Moglia

    Jean-Michel Leligny – Tentation de disparition

    "Once you enter the mountains, no one meets anyone else. That is just the total activity of the mountains. There is no trace of anyone left once they have entered the mountains." Master Dogen Temptation of disappearance is the fruit of a solitary, difficult journey in search of the present time which imposes itself in images that are sometimes rough, but always of a brilliant beauty. They reveal the fragility of a strong and wild nature that reminds us how much we must respect it. Tentation de disparition is also a quest, an attempt to reconcile with a painful past, to which the author invites us. Photographs and text support and answer each other in the delicacy of the mist as in the power of the torrent.

    Richard Volante – Trace

    Traces is the second part of the residency on the site of the future ecocity ViaSilva, in Rennes. The views that emerge reveal the desire to keep a visible trace of a world in upheaval. The extension of cities is part of our daily life. This human flow that empties the countryside and fills the cities, to the point that they absorb the rural world that surrounds them, is a subject that affects many of us. The ViaSilva photographic meetings offer photographers, each year, the opportunity to look at the metamorphosis of the outskirts of a city in France. From this insistence on seeing a landscape evolve through the filter of the artists' poetry, a new relationship to the world can be born and open us up to a new way of inhabiting a territory. This year, Richard Volante has taken the baton passed down by Jacques Domeau and Christophe Simonato, who intervened in 2017. Fascinated by the imprint, he seeks the traces of beings who have preceded him on a place and tracks down clues that he reconstructs for us through a fiction in images. His need to be anchored in the reality of the world is visceral.

    Paul Cupido – Mukayu

    "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. Limited edition of 540 numbered copies.

    Terri Weifenbach – Des oiseaux

    Made in her personal garden space in Washington DC, Terri Weifenbach's photographs reveal the secret world of nature populated by birds that nest in urban gardens. Oscillating between fantasy and reality, her images seem to be taken on the sly as the birds race, dance, or settle, freeze, and congregate in the parliaments. Seasons come and go, the colors of the garden change. The saturated light and colors, the play of fuzzy and crystalline details, the freeze-frames depict a "supra-reality". Terri Weifenbach immerses us in the infinitely small, transporting us into a particularly vivid and wonderful world. This publication is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the vision of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now vulnerable. To accompany these photographs, the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre writes a special essay. For this title, he sheds light on the adaptation of birds to the urban environment.

    Bernard Plossu – Des oiseaux

    Bernard Plossu has been traveling the world for years, capturing through his lens furtive moments where birds are caught in full flight forming immense clouds, standing alone in the middle of a body of water, balancing on electric wires or hovering solitary among the peaks. Flight fascinates the photographer, from the exhilaration of the swallows' speed to the hypnotic immobility of the great birds of prey carried by the wind in altitude. He shows fragments of the world, a world where birds reinvest our space. The essay by the ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre evokes a fundamental aspect of the life of birds: migration, highlighted here with the photographs of Bernard Plossu. This book, together with the one by Pentti Sammallahti, inaugurate the collection Des oiseaux, celebrating, through the eyes of different artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile.

    Yoshinori Mizutani – Des oiseaux

    Yoshinori Mizutani, a leading figure in young Japanese photography, revisits the urban space of his city, Tokyo. Deeply imbued with the Japanese pictorial tradition, the photographer explores Tokyo's daily life and captures scenes that border on the fantastic. His framing and acid colors give his images a certain strangeness. Shapes, textures, colored nuances, depth of field elaborate a visual vocabulary that is both poetic and pop. Visions of dreams or nightmares, Yoshinori Mizutani's birds saturate the world of the city with their presence and restore its mystery. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. The ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. For those of Yoshinori Mizutani, he highlights the gregarious behavior of birds.

    Byung-Hun Min – Des oiseaux

    To make visible the silence and simplicity of nature, the sensation of time passing. Korean photographer Byung-Hun Min's photographs, taken around the world between 1998 and 2020, have the evanescence of a pencil drawing: low contrast, playing with silky tones, they seem to show a fleeting moment between clarity and dissolution. The birds of Min inhabit an impalpable space. They seem to be wrapped in a white veil, in a silvery light. The almost monochrome image, the uniformity of the tones oscillating between white and grey, the absence of perspectives and contrasts, the simplicity of the construction and the minimalism of the forms restore a reality that has become fantastic. The long work during the printing of the negative allows the photographer to render not only what he has seen but also perceived. Min's birds invite contemplation. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. The ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. For this book, he is interested in the relationship that binds man to the bird from the first representations of prehistoric times to the domestication of certain species, to the bird as a hunting instrument to the pure observation of this inexhaustible subject of study and wonder. This book is part of the collection Of Birds which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. Other titles in the collection include: Michael Kenna, Yoshinori Mizutani, Bernard Plossu, Pentti Sammallahti and Terri Weifenbach.

    Michaël Serfaty – Je vous écris avec la chair des mots

    Michaël Serfaty is a gynecologist. For 30 years, he has been welcoming women in his practice. He is also a photographer. Over the years, he has collected women's words, phrases of pain, sadness, suffering, in their bodies, in their lives, in their hearts. Sentences that moved him. He opened a notebook and put these words in it to make images, with his photographs, but also with ink, thread, paint... The notebook became an enormous object, swollen with secrets, shame and wounds. Impossible to hold, nor to go through. It had escaped him. Michaël Serfaty does not betray, he testifies, he does not reveal, he insists, he does not reveal, he shouts "I write you with the flesh of words".

    Michael Kenna – Des oiseaux

    A master of black and white landscape photography, Michael Kenna presents an almost evanescent world that he invites us to contemplate. "In all my work, there is an underlying theme of memory, time, change, and atmospheres that seem to be linked to place. Birds hover, drawing aerial figures in cloudy skies, waiting wisely on branches... Suspended flights, stopped moments: time freezes, becomes immutable. Gradients of gray, tones with a slight sepia tint and depth of field give Michael Kenna's photographs a certain melancholy. The world is silence. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. Other titles in the collection include: Michael Kenna, Yoshinori Mizutani, Bernard Plossu, Pentti Sammallahti and Terri Weifenbach.

    Graciela Iturbide – Des oiseaux

    Graciela Iturbide, a leading figure in Latin American photography, creates images that oscillate between documentary approach and lyricism. Off-center framing, graphic effects and the power of shadows create a poetic universe where the feeling of strangeness is mixed with that of a raw reality. The powerful balance of his compositions shows skies saturated with birds, funny and unexpected situations where chickens wait quietly on market stalls, where pigeons argue with monkeys, and elsewhere are moving swarms that look like real living organisms with supple and fluid movements. For Iturbide, living birds represent freedom. But death is never far away and neither is a certain surrealist spirit. From India to Mexico, from waterfronts to urban terraces, seagulls, eagles, pigeons, herons, crows invade human space or slip in unexpectedly and solitarily. Graciela Iturbide's birds arouse both attraction and repulsion: their fragility but sometimes also their power. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. Ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre offers an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs. Other titles in the collection include: Michael Kenna, Yoshinori Mizutani, Bernard Plossu, Pentti Sammallahti and Terri Weifenbach.

    Julien Mauve – Titanic Orchestra

    Titanic Orchestra is an instinctive reaction to the wave of violence that struck Paris in 2015. Like so many metaphors, these organic images tell of the fall of a world and the struggle to emerge from the state of stupefaction that followed. The city that is shown has kept the appearance we know, and yet everything has changed. After the impact, chaos reigns, a veil has fallen, the center of gravity has been shaken, a disturbing nature seems to have taken over. Looking for an anchor point for lack of an answer, the photographer shifts his lens alternately towards the sky, the earth, a fleeting object or an obstructed horizon. The artist's bodily presence is palpable here: he is the seismograph that records the pulsations of this hallucinatory universe. Everywhere he looks, the threat hovers: the engulfment, the fall, absent, inert bodies. His spasmodic vision stumbles against walls or screens, debris lies at his feet, voices are disembodied in loudspeakers, and if he looks up, it is the blind eye of a camera that he meets. The irreversible has happened, but the impulse of life remains. And it is in the meeting with bodies in resistance, desiring, powerful, that the repair will be able to engage.

    Lola Reboud – Les Climats II (Japon)

    Les Climats II (Japan), Lola Reboud's first book, is based on the relationship we have with Climates - human environments, and where the geography of territories, like the cycle of seasons, is as important as individuals. Following exchanges with the volcanologist Patrick Allard, researcher at the Institut du Globe de Paris, Lola Reboud went to the Kyushu region to photograph the volcanic observation laboratories and the sites of Sakurajima and Aso San, as well as Beppu, where geothermal energy is particularly visible. This photographic ensemble forms a narrative in which a human figure is mixed with his environment. The geothermal energy that characterizes the Nippon archipelago is also at the heart of the subject.

    Collectif – Flux, une société en mouvement

    Following the eponymous photographic commission initiated by Cnap in 2018, Flux, a society in motion presents the work of fifteen photographers or artist duos who bear witness to the multiple flows irrigating the world today and their environmental and societal consequences. This possibility or impossibility of movement is the basis of the conditions of existence of each form of life. But financial flows, logistical flows, human flows, electrical flows, data flows, raw material flows are all intertwined, get carried away and sometimes end up overflowing. The text that introduces the book, written by Bruce Bégout, philosopher and novelist, great explorer of our planet under the influence of globalization, is conceived, in the form of a carte blanche, as a sixteenth participation in this project. Each of the artists has freely laid out their images and chosen an author to put them into words. This photographic book, through these singular artistic and critical languages, thus exposes a wide range of today's French photographic scene, which represents and documents to produce an updated knowledge of all aspects of life, from the most visible to the most minute. The collection also illustrates the importance of the commission in the history of contemporary photographic practices, which have initiated essential moments, particularly in times of crisis.

    Raymond Depardon – La Chambre

    Signed and numbered edition from 1 to 500 In La Chambre, signed and numbered to 500 copies, Raymond Depardon invites us on a journey to the family farm of Le Garet, where he grew up, through a selection of iconic images taken in color, with a view camera. This large negative format, with its long exposure, transforms each image into a painting, a silent passage in and around this farm that has marked the family's destiny. The smallest details, seemingly insignificant, become a photographic subject. A chair, a table, a wallpaper pattern, each element is a fragment of the photographer's memory that transports us through his memories in a permanent tension between past and present. The work questions this relationship to time and the universal concept of memory, both highlighted in a text by philosopher Jacques Rancière, written especially for the book. La Chambre is presented as a carefully crafted artist's book with a stunning form. Each photograph is hand-glued only to the top edge of the paper and positioned in a dry-marked bowl identical to the format of the original negative. The images are thus reproduced to scale 1 and appear like a print glued in an album.

    Yves Trémorin – Monica

    A figure of French contemporary photography, first known in the 1980s as a member of the mythical and sulphurous trio Noir Limite (with Florence Chevallier and Jean-Claude Bélégou), Yves Trémorin has been building a rigorous body of work for several decades, both in its procedures and its processes. In a practice at the origin as much as at the margin and at the heart of his work, he has not ceased, for more than 40 years, to photograph his companion Monique. Several series have thus been created, often exhibited or reproduced in a fragmentary manner: "Les Amants magnifiques", "Chambre close", "Un dimanche" and "Monica". They are finally published in their entirety in this book, accompanied by numerous unpublished photographs from the 1980s and 1990s, selected with Yves Trémorin from his archives, showing their work process as sketches and preparatory sketches. Through the intimate photographic practice of the artist, who constructs the portrait "from Monique to Monica", companion, actress or myth, this book shows how a loving and photographic relationship constituted the beginnings of the major axes of his work. This book, born from a proposal by Caroline Bénichou (VU' gallery), includes an interview by Yves Trémorin with Michel Poivert.

    Julien Coquentin – Tropiques

    With this new work, Tropiques, Julien Coquentin further explores his favorite themes of childhood, family, territory and otherness. It is after a trip to Reunion Island that he elaborated his new series. Having left to work there as a nurse, with his wife and three children, he spent two years taking photos and writing texts, considering that photography and writing are two sides of the same creation. As he said in an interview, "I believe that my writing resembles my photography and that it is therefore possible to confuse them." This is also the editorial interest of this book: to give the same role to the texts (5 short stories, like tales) and to the images, without one being an illustration of the other. Texts and photographs will thus be the two actors of the same story, each with its own particularities, thus allowing to say what cannot be imagined and to image what cannot be said. Julien Coquentin lets vibrate, in images where the dampness of the island is almost palpable, the themes of the relationship between man and nature, the intimacy of the family caught in a foreign territory, the difference of the other culture...

    Jérémie Lenoir – Dust

    In the previous work, NORD, published in April 2016 by Light Motiv, photographer Jérémie Lenoir flew over the axis of industrial heritage reconversion between Arras and Antwerp. With this new series DUST, he travels the boundary between water and land all around Utah's Salt Lake, where human mining of sodium, magnesium, potassium, and petroleum takes place. The amazing colors result from the concentration of salt, algae, microorganisms, or are artificially generated by additives accelerating evaporation or by some discharges from the few facilities. Protocol of realization: during several residencies spread over 3 years, Jérémie Lenoir photographed the contours of the salt lake, multiplying the flights above each selected space to follow, trace and understand its transformation. The photographer always takes his shots at the same time, around noon, when the sun is at its zenith; this light that crushes the reliefs and the colors offers a neutrality and a flatness essential to obtain this confusion between photography and painting. All the images are also captured at the same altitude, around 450 m / 1500ft, and with the same fixed focal length to obtain a consistency of scale. By combining aerial point of view and abstraction, the artist continues his work of anthropology of the landscape while experimenting, even more intensely in this new series, the limits of the photographic medium; a sensitive and unique look on our contemporary world.

    Harry Gruyaert – India

    India is disconcerting, it destabilizes you and makes you lose your bearings. It stimulates you intellectually. There is an energy there that is born of an impression of constant chaos: the people, the cities, the swarming of the crowd. What immediately interested me was the multiplicity of elements with which one can compose and this orgy of colors that one must try to control in order not to fall into the easy way. - Harry Gruyaert Through a dozen trips over more than 40 years, Harry Gruyaert has tirelessly traveled the Indian peninsula and in this book gives us a testimony of this country in tension where tradition and modernity, effervescence and tranquility, permanently coexist. Multiple details, different layers, are intertwined in these photographs, mostly unpublished, which oscillate between chromatic power and an almost monochrome palette. The air is saturated with color, light, noise, and sometimes silence. By restoring the multi-sensory experience that he has perceived over the years in the face of the mysteries of this country, the Belgian photographer paints a contrasting picture that is far from exotic. Harry Gruyaert recounts, in the introduction, his discovery and fascination for India. While various excerpts from Jean-Claude Carrière's Dictionnaire amoureux de l'Inde punctuate this visual exploration of the Indian peninsula.
