D'ici, ça ne paraît pas si loin

Presentation by Le bec en l'air :      [all texts in the book in French only]

" D'ici, ça ne paraît pas si loin is the story of a map of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, an administrative one, one that is essential. It is a map with hazy borders, which raises questions: is it a territory in its own right? Does it federate its inhabitants? It combines documentary and artistic photography, portraits and landscapes, the collection draws us into an abstract geographical ensemble which becomes a pretext to rethink the notions of shaping culture and society.

Les Associés is a French collective of the following five photographers who worked on this project: Joël Peyrou, Sébastien Sindeu, Olivier Panier des Touches, Alexandre Dupeyron, and Elie Monferier.

Les Associés

Les Associés is a French collective of six photographers: Elie Monférier, Olivier Panier des Touches, Sébastien Sindeu, Alexandre Dupeyron, Joël Peyrou, and Mickaël Parpet. Presentation by Les Asssociés: " Friends, we became partners. Sort of as a joke. Chance presented us with the opportunity of writing a story, and we jumped on that possibility, without discussing goals, structure, or statement. Since 2015, we enjoy meeting, exchanging, thinking about projects in today's photography, that has become a theater of constant changes. The members of Les Associés come from the tradition of documentary photography. However, each of their practices has evolved following their personal aspirations, each photographer illustrating in the evolution of his work the transformations of the medium and the shifts in its uses. " In 2020, Les Associés published with Le Bec en l'Air the photobook "D'ici, ça ne paraît pas si loin" ["From here, it doesn't seem so far"], from a four-year work in the French region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine on a project initially titled "The Map and the Territory".
