Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral:  

" This monograph spans over 40 years of photography and long journeys off the beaten track. Beyond any chronology, it unfolds like a tale rooted in a reality with dystopic accents. Between fear and serenity, Alain Willaume’s photographs take us into the tension and precarious beauty of our world.

An introduction written by David Chandler (author, curator, and critic) as well as texts by Gérard Haller (writer) contextualize Willaume's practice along with detailed captions written by the photographer at the end of the publication. "

We are offering two copies signed by the artist.

Please note: only the introduction by David Chandler is translated into English. French only otherwise.

Willaume, Alain

Alain Willaume is a French photographer, member of the Tendance Floue collective since 2010. He is also a curator and teacher. The Tendance Floue website indicates: « Alain Willaume develops an unusual work in tune with the world which he crosses and observes for many years. Under the influence of long journeys and away from the main streams, he draws up a personal cartography made of enigmatic images, which all tell of the violence and the vulnerability of the world and the human beings who live in it.  » He won the Kodak Photography "Prix de la Critique" Award in 1979 and a Sony World Photography Award in 2011 in the Portraits category. He was one of the curators of the series of exhibitions themed INDIA at the Rencontres d'Arles 2007, and was the editor of the monography "India Now : New Visions in Photography" published by Thames & Hudson (and Textuel in France) in 2007. In 2019, he publishes "Coordonnées 72/18" with Éditions Xavier Barral, a survey of his career as a photographer. © Portrait taken from the website "Crossing the Line Festival" by the Alliance Française Institute (not credited)

  • 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...
