    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.

    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.

    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.

    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."
