Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral:

"From Lebanon in the 1960s to Marseille today, via Alexandria, Valence, the beaches of Palavas, Naples, and Rimini, Raymond Depardon offers us golden moments in the Mediterranean, comprising many previously unpublished photographs.

On the occasion of the exhibition Un Moment Si Doux [Golden Moments] presented at the MUCEM in Marseille (2014), Raymond Depardon re-immersed himself in his archives and selected over 80 photographs taken within the Mediterranean perimeter. Constantly attuned to reality, the photographer presents this region with a sharp and benevolent eye. He allows us to relive a condensed version of the Mediterranean through the ages. The new colour photographs that Raymond Depardon took in Marseille in the spring of 2014 feature in the final section of the book.

A text by Claudine Nougaret completes this photographic selection and invites us to follow Raymond Depardon’s wanderings in the streets of Marseille."

This book is co-published with the MUCEM museum in Marseille, on the occasion of the exhibition Un moment si doux (Golden Moments) held in the Fall / Winter 2014-2015.

Depardon, Raymond

Raymond Depardon is a French photographer and film director. He founded the Gamma press agency in 1966 with fellow French photographer Gilles Caron, and later joined Magnum Photos in 1978. He was a photojournalist covering war zones in the 60's, 70's and 80's (Algeria, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Chad, Lebanon, etc.) He directed many documentary films, in the political world ("1974, une partie de campagne" about the presidential election of Valéry Giscard-d'Estaing), the industrial world ("Numéros Zéros", about the creation of the newspaper "Matin de Paris") and the judicial and carceral system ("Faits Divers", "Délits Flagrants", "10ème chambre, instants d'audience") before turning his camera to rural France and the disappearing world of very small farmers with his triptych "L'Approche", "Profils Paysans" and "La Vie Moderne". The list of his publications is very long, Raymond Depardon being one of the French photographers to have published the most photobooks (on a side note, he is still far from Bernard Plossu's count...) A short version could include: "Notes" (Arfuyen, 1979), "Correspondance New-Yorkaise" (Libération / L'Etoile, 1981), "San Clemente" (CNP, 1984), "La Ferme du Garet" (Editions Carré, 1995), "Désert, un homme sans occident" (Le Seuil, 2003), "La Terre des Paysans" (Le Seuil, 2008), "Méditerranée" (Editions Xavier Barral, 2014), "Glasgow" (Le Seuil, 2016), "Depardon USA" (Editions Xavier Barral, 2018), "Rural" (Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, 2020), "La Chambre" (Atelier EXB, 2020). © Self-portrait, 1992.

He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these...
