Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral :
"While hitchhiking across the length and breadth of France, Antoine Bruy met men and women who, in Ardèche and Lozère, aspire to live in the most self-sufficient way possible.
Inspired by this approach, he volunteered within a network that lists initiatives based on biodynamic agriculture and permaculture. He was hosted in communities that enabled him to meet these men and women, in France, Romania, Switzerland, Spain, or the United States – sixteen locations in all are present in his work, scattered over two continents.
In these locations where Bruy travels with no more than his backpack, he photographs both nature, whose infinite nuances he meticulously captures, and habitats, disparate assemblages, characterised by their simplicity and rusticity. He also creates portraits of men and women who have chosen to isolate themselves in these places."
This book was published following the « Prix HSBC pour la Photographie » awarded in 2018 to Scrublands and to the series Liparo by Petros Efstathiadis.

Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral: "“The slow ruin of a man with no ties, a refugee from a long expedition, which repeats itself from room to room.” Antoine d’Agata does not stage the world he photographs, he is merely the silent witness, the assiduous spectator. He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these ordinary or...
