Publisher's presentation:

"Au cours des cinquante dernières années, l'espace urbain a connu des transformations sans précédent, et notamment le développement de zones périphériques dans lesquelles la ville traditionnelle se défait. Scattered City ("La ville dispersée"), réalisé entre 2001 et 2004 à travers le monde, s'attache à rendre visible, dans un environnement apparemment informe, des ruptures et des perspectives. Des buildings modernes, parfois remarquables, voisinent avec des constructions anciennes ou provisoires, et l'architecture devient partie d'un ensemble formé de routes, de rails, de bouts de nature, d'espaces en attente. Du fait de la précision attentive du regard, c'est finalement moins le chaos que la dignité d'une réalité complexe, voire sa beauté inattendue, qu'on éprouve."

A beautiful book, quite rare, by one of the greatest photographer of architecture and the city.

  • Présentation de l'éditeur : "Ces photographies, anciennes ou récentes, ont été réalisées en Europe et au Japon. Mais le temps et le lieu, en l'occurrence, importent peu. Il s'agit essentiellement de rencontres ramassées en elles-mêmes, qui ne contiennent aucune information, ne désignent aucun contexte. Le caractère poétique, si on veut risquer ce...
