    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.

    Noémie Goudal – Soulèvement

    The book Soulèvements is the continuation of a vast photographic project related to the history of science and theories of the formation of the Earth. Originally inspired by the ancient discoveries that revealed the presence of fossils on the top of mountains, the series Soulèvements is the result of a reflection on the interpretations that have been made over the centuries, based on the observations of these fossils. Based in part on the imaginary, Soulèvements is a reinvention of scientific representations of the formation of the Earth's reliefs and the movements of the mountains revealing a form of choreography of the landscape. Composed from an installation of thirty mirrors, each of the photographs sculpts the space and the landscape challenging the viewer's gaze and his imagination. Not as a simple edition of photographs, the book is built as a mirror of the process of creation of the work, revealing the details, the materiality of the supports, the mechanisms, and interprets the theoretical research underlying the images. The book is composed of a large-format edition exposing the photographs in all their details and an independent booklet. Slipped into the book, this booklet mixes a scientific iconography, images of documentation of the shots and a text by Emma Lewis emphasizing the theoretical and scientific process that accompanies the artist's project.

    Albarrán Cabrera – Des oiseaux

    The poetic universe of the Spanish photographic duo Albarrán Cabrera is presented here through a dreamlike journey to the land of birds. Between reality and illusion, the image questions our relationship to the tangible world and becomes a sensitive vibration through different chromatic shades and photographic processes: platinum print, palladium, cyanotype, silver gelatin, pigmented print ... Each image is like a stopped story. The birds seem to come straight out of fantastic tales; they take flight on shimmering surfaces, scatter among dark foliage while some tight framing underlines their physical presence. The birds become almost abstract, sometimes represented by dots or shadows. Albarrán Cabrera leaves the interpretation of their images to the viewer's memory to let our imagination fly. This book is part of the collection Des oiseaux that celebrates, through the eyes of different 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. For this book, he is interested in the different habitats of birds and their ability to adapt to their environment whether it is celestial, marine or in the heights.

    Sandrine Elberg – JÖKULL, la mémoire des glaciers

    On August 18, 2019 in Iceland, a memorial plaque was unveiled in honor of Okjökull (officially decommissioned in 2014), the first disappearing glacier on the subarctic island. The monument A letter to the future was erected on the site of the former glacier marking the first fateful observation due to climate change in the world. On this plaque in gold lettering can be seen the words 415 ppm CO2, referring to the record level of carbon dioxide concentration recorded in the atmosphere in May 2019. According to researchers and scientists, Iceland loses about eleven billion tons of ice every year. Those too fear the disappearance of 400 glaciers on the island within two hundred years if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate. The photographic corpus JÖKULL is a tribute to the sublime, to the glaciers of Iceland with their faults, scars, whirlpools, mills and crevasses. The different views of the glaciers are erected under the moon and the starry skies of the island for an invitation to contemplation and reverie. This work contributes in a poetic way to the memory of the glaciers.

    Leila Jeffreys – Des oiseaux

    In this book, Leila Jeffreys invites us on a journey through the tropical forests and jungles of the world to meet the amazing species of birds she has been photographing since 2008: "I have always noticed that many birds have particular expressions. To capture them, I had to find a way to photograph them in a way that would bring out their own character. My favorite way to photograph them is to set up a portrait studio in a place that is familiar to them. I talk to them as I work so they interact with me. Cultivating this art of waiting, Leila Jeffreys delivers a gallery of whimsical yet hyper-realistic portraits populated by cockatoos, wild parakeets, five-colored diamonds and other exotic species of colorful animals. In turn, graceful, mischievous, fierce, proud, shy, posers: each bird photographed lets its personality shine through and seems to want to dialogue with the viewer. His practice underlines the anthropomorphism shared between man and animal. This book is part of the Des oiseaux collection, which celebrates, through the eyes of various artists, their immense presence in a world where they are now fragile. The ornithologist Guilhem Lesaffre proposes an unpublished essay to accompany each set of photographs.

    Josef Koudelka – Ruines

    Through nearly 200 photographs, this important work traces the entirety of Josef Koudelka's work on the ancient sites around the Mediterranean. The result of 28 years of peregrinations through 20 countries, Koudelka photographed 200 archaeological sites in the same panoramic format. For some, he returned several times, sometimes even ten times, over different periods, in search of the "best image". Beyond a romantic and picturesque vision of these sites, Josef Koudelka's astonishing framing, often flush with the ground in plunge or counter-plunge, and his black and white with powerful contrasts make us rediscover some mythical places like Delphi and Pompeii. Among Koudelka's photographs, some show sites that have disappeared or been mutilated as a result of recent conflicts in the Arab world, such as Palmyra or Bosra. This exceptional corpus reveals the homogeneity of an empire, ruled from Rome, for centuries, the fascination we have for the ruins and for a civilization founding ours. To accompany these photographs, the Hellenist Alain Schnapp has drawn from ancient literature and that of travel writers ancient and modern quotations that cast a different light on antiquity and its ruins, and put into perspective our vision of the past. Several texts also shed light on this work: Héloïse Conésa examines the photographer's singular approach and recontextualizes it in the history of art, Bernard Latarjet recounts Koudelka's interest in the panoramic format and his fascination with ruins, while Alain Schnapp traces the history of ruins and what they have represented for societies over the centuries.

    Sergio Larrain – Londres 1959

    This book brings together the photographs of Sergio Larrain taken during his stay in London during the winter of 1958-1959, nearly half of which are unpublished - not published in the first edition published by Hazan in 1998. A selection expanded by the author himself. In London, the Chilean photographer constituted his first important series during his four-month residency thanks to a grant from the British Council. Curiously, these photographs, taken in the mode of a stroll, have been little reproduced in the press. An essay by Roberto Bolaño, written especially for these images in 1998.

    Francesca Todde – A Sensitive Education

    With A Sensitive Education, photographer Francesca Todde explores, through the figure of bird educator Tristan Plot, the possibilities of empathy between different natural species. The narrative, far from being a naturalistic documentation, is rather focused on the emotional sphere and the sensitivity of birds and humans. The photographic research develops in resonance with the delicacy of this wordless dialogue. Tristan is a bird educator specializing in gentle methods. He prepares birds to participate in theater and dance performances or film documentaries. He is also working on the new concept of ornitotherapy and animal mediation, creating contact between birds and disabled people, elderly people, prisoners, in order to promote new sensations and create a deep reconciliation between birds and humans. As a child, in the forest behind his parents' house in Touraine, Tristan noticed that if he stayed still for a long time, animals would come out of the vegetation and it was possible to observe them. Today, this practice of slow approach, respecting the rhythm of nature, remains essential in his teaching method. Since studying ecology, biology and ethology at university, he has developed a teaching technique at the intersection of imprinting, traditional training and positive training. His method is a set of observations and predispositions of the mind in harmony with the environment, according to the sensitivity of the other and in relation to codes of expression and behavior different from those of humans. Tristan, through the intuition of animality as something delicate, subtle and minimal, defines the relationship with birds as an exclusive link capable of reconciling the rhythm of the species with that of the individual. His research is based on the understanding of the sensitivity of birds and aims at recovering that capacity, lost in the course of evolution, to perceive the minimal variations and the micro-movements that constitute the expressive world of animals.

    Casper Faassen – Recollection

    I remember drawing the athletes I admired, sunsets on vacation, or paintings like Rembrandt's "The Night Watch". Since my early childhood, it has been a way for me to assimilate moments of connection, to understand what makes these impressions precious. And today, in searching for 'life' or 'stillness' in a still life, I feel more than ever that I am stopping time, by enclosing these objects that belong or once belonged to collectors, artists, scientists or museums. By their mere presence, each object brings its own story. By focusing on the time, spirit and value of these objects, I began to integrate Japanese beliefs and philosophies such as animism, kintsugi or mono no aware into my work. Between my studio in Leiden and working on my collection and Japan, I inevitably crossed paths with Dr. Philipp Franz von Siebold who had lived in Leiden and Dejima in the 19th century. He had started collecting flora and fauna for scientific purposes but soon his project had grown and he had created his own Japanese cultural center: The Siebold House. And although I do not physically own most of the objects in this book, they are now all part of my collection: I surround myself with old Jomon vases, rare ginger pots from the Edo period, and wisteria plants brought to the Hortus Botanicus garden in Leiden by von Siebold. I rework, add my language, question and admire. I remember.

    Gaël Bonnefon – Elegy for the Mundane

    For a long time, Gaël Bonnefon has titled all his images About Decline. A body of photographs spanning more than 10 years, which pays tribute to the beauty of the banal and the everyday. He explores the interstices, between the visible and the invisible, where ordinary life reveals its shadows. His work has evolved over the years, but his writing remains consistent: here, landscapes (waterfalls, forests or large deserted areas) vibrate with the same force and intensity as scenes or portraits of people who are worn out, exhausted, out of breath, but still very much alive.Gaël Bonnefon, a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Toulouse, has exhibited at the Villa Pérochon, 104 (Paris), Arles, Photo Espana, and at the Musée des Abattoirs de Toulouse. His work is present in the collections of the FRAC Midi-Pyrénées, the Château d'Eau and the Kiyosato Museum (Japan)... The first retrospective work of his, Elegy for the Mundane presents the diversity of a work always homogeneous, being able to approach the violence and the decline as much as the softness and the tenderness. Here, the feelings are not fixed but resonate with each other...

    Gilles Roudière – Trova

    "Gilles Roudière belongs to this family of intuitive and sensitive photography, he does not tell the world as it is, but as he feels it. Also in the images of Cuba that he delivers, there is neither intention of testimony, nor documentary intention. Nothing is descriptive. No clues, no geographical or social studies. That is not his intention." "With Trova, Gilles Roudière signs a photographic stroll through Cuba in the manner of the Spanish-American trovadores going from town to town to perform their songs. He lets himself be carried along by his journey and delivers powerful black and white images, with an explosive grain. Without ever stopping at the surface of things, free of clichés and any exotic temptation, his photographs play between fiction and reality and compose a story that seems to come straight out of a movie. Photographs often at the border of surrealism, carried by a fascinated and fascinating look."

    Stéphane Lavoué – Les Mois Noirs

    "I encountered the land of the Bigouden only a few days after meeting my partner, Catherine. I was in my twenties, we had just decided to spend our life together and I had already had to go to Malaysia for several months. To seal our very young relationship, she decided to submit me to the "bigouden test", an initiation ceremony of a few days, at her grandparents' in Kérity. From the first moment, I was literally bewitched. The smile of her grandmother welcoming us on the sidewalk, the blinding white light on the front of the house, the tray of steamed langoustines on the living room table ... then the strolls on the shore, the silhouette of the lighthouse, the stories of sailors lost at sea Everything, my retina printed everything. Twenty years later, here we are again at Kérity. With our two daughters. After more than a decade of life in Paris, we are yearning for profound changes. We have considered everything: Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Montreal. Finally, it was at Cap Caval, the southern tip of Finistère, that we decided to settle. In Kerity, in the house of Catherine's grandparents. Quickly, this small familiar territory provoked the long-awaited Copernican revolution. The end of Parisian commissions has enabled me to practice a more personal photography and our new environment becomes my main source of inspiration. It's about trying to express the emotions I can feel living here on the edge of the world. I grope around, experiment with several photographic forms to escape the worn-out iconography of the seashores, boats and fishing nets. Luckily, I'm too sick at sea to photograph on board! So I stay at the quay and push the door of the hangars: auctions, shipyards, marine forges, canneries, coolers ... I discover the "On land " sector fed by the successive tides of trawlers, trolling boats and netters. Community. Manual work. Painfulness. The economic and social architecture of the territory. And there are young people . Those who have not left "the country" but cling to it, viscerally. They intrigue me, I photograph them: the young self-employed fisherman, queen of the embroiderers, miller, fish-scaler, surfer ... why do they stay when the majority leave? They guide me on new paths and help me complete my “Bigoudene" mind map. That’s how Les Mois Noirs was born, a fictional photographic story, an intimate representation of the territory in which my “bigoudène” and I had decided to live." – Stéphane Lavoué

    Thomas Klotz – Northscape

    The LOCI collection proposes to participate in the universal memory of a place by telling in the most open way the history, the horizon, the geography of a place through the artistic and literary narrative.Northscape is the second’s LOCI publication. Thomas Klotz develops urban landscapes from the north of France where wobbly geometry and chromatic saturation give testaments to his personal commitment. As rigorous as this series of photographs is – in laying out before us a series of façades, one after another, which intersect with a few fleeting glances at some remains of nature or more rarely yet with the glimpse of an interior, to produce a cold mood that could almost be called despair – the conceptual framework never appears to have defined a priori the visual perspective of the image. - Sonia Voss Text in French and English

    Akihito Yoshida – Une Double Absence

    A true photographic tale, this book tells the story of a young man, Daiki, whose life was entirely dedicated to his grandmother, Yukimi. Fascinated and touched by this unique relationship, photographer Akihito Yoshida, Daiki's cousin and also Yukimi's grandson, decides to document this story. He photographs daily life and over the years, we see a rare relationship being created between the grandmother and her grandson: attention, kindness, trust and attachment draw a bond of extraordinary strength. But one day, Daiki disappears without a word. Yukimi collapses, Daiki's presence fades away. What remains of this story, of their relationship, of their affection? Akihito Yoshida shows the impermanence of beings, the fragility of the bonds, the appearances that deceive, the obsessive absence of our loved ones. This work has been presented at the Kyotographie International Photography Festival, the Lianzhou Foto Festival, both in 2017, the Singapore International Photography Festival in 2018 and the Fisheye Gallery in January 2020.

    Charlotte Abramow – Maurice, Tristesse et rigolade (signed and numbered edition)

    Charlotte Abramow’s father is an atypical and eccentric character, a doctor and a dreamer. Following a cancer and a coma that will leave him neurological after-effects, he must relearn everything and will not be the same, living in his inner world. But this whimsical character has an accomplice relationship with his daughter. And the progress in the remission of Mauritius, experienced as a true renaissance, will be a great source of energy for Charlotte to carry out this project become like a photographic game between a father and his daughter. Surrealism surfaces in many of the images that, far from sinking us into painful pathos, transport us to a parallel, light and joyful world. In the form of a fairy tale, Charlotte presents her father in the studio in metaphorical tableaux that compose seven chapters: "The Coma", "The Room", "Disorientation", "The Langage", "The Kingdom", "Surrealist interview", "The Next World". This tale doesn't translate a desire to understand this mystery, but to pay homage to it. This edition is signed and numbered on 1000 exemplars.

    Stéphane Lavoué – The Kingdom

    "I arrived there by chance one evening, following the winding curves of the North Ridge Road, a muddy, bumpy ridge road that connects the farms of West-Burke and Sutton to each other. Without ever having the impression of having crossed a border. It wasn't until the early morning hours, when I left my New England-style wooden house, that I accompanied my hosts to their Sunday mass in Barton, in the North East Kingdom of Vermont. Intrigued by the idea that in the heart of the United States of America, I had illegally penetrated into royal territory, I decided to undertake the journey that would lead me to its confines, from the southern shores of Lake Memphremagog to the slopes of the Green Mountains, to meet the sentinels and subjects of the Kingdom. I came across the desolation of these gutted houses, as if blown down by time, abandoned by their owners, victims of industrial decline. I came across young utopian farmers who had come to experiment with an alternative life of decline, refusing mechanization, whispering in the ears of oxen and horses an unknown language. I met bear hunters with bows and arrows, taxidermists in wolf skin, the princess of the slaughterhouses, an old explorer and the woman with the log. I went from farm to farm, some opening the doors of others. And, transforming little by little my path between lake and hills into a royal quest, I asked each one the question: But where is the King?
