Full title : Dystopia - Main basse sur l’agriculture ("Dystopia - The Hijacking of Agriculture")
Publisher's presentation :
"In the aftermath of the Second World War, governments drove farmers to embrace a headlong rush to modernization. A half-century later, utopia has become a dystopia: 60% of farmers have disappeared, soil erosion is getting worse, pesticides are ending up on our plates…
In a series of photographic scenes, Dystopia denounces the downward spiral of a deadly system and shows what awaits us if nothing changes."
Next to each photo by Alexa Brunet, a text by Patrick Herman, a farmer and independent journalist, explains one of the things going wrong in today's agriculture "productivism". The image illustrates the subject, often in a satirical, ironical or "deadpan" manner. (Texts in French only).
