" AZIMUT is a photographic walk over an 8-month period across the French territory, organized as a relay of 31 photographers, and initiated by the collective Tendance Floue.
Everyone's itinerary is free. Trails or paved roads, straight lines or winding tracks, the walkers-photographers have only one imperative to comply with: be on time at the appointment made with the one taking the next relay. Following these paths, the photographers made the paradoxical experience of the freedom and the constraints of walking. The slowing of time, the submission to the weather conditions and to the exhaustion of the body change the relation to the places they go through, to the landscapes they discover, to the encounters made during these slow journeys.
Each photographer contributed to a collective log on Instagram and to a Moleskine log book transmitted from one stage to the next. A selection of these texts is interspersed throughout the book, combining talented narration and poetic wanderings. "
The project was initially self-published by Tendance Floue in 6 volumes - each titled with a single letter from the project name - between June 2017 ("A") and October 2018 ("T"). NB : You can still find some of these original publications on our website; the currently listed titles following this link (please inquire for additional volumes as they are not all listed).
This project should have been on display at the Rencontres d'Arles festival in 2020 (canceled) and is on display in France during the Fall / Winter 2020/2021 in Clermont-de-l'Oise (Photaumnales festival - Sept. 19th to Nov. 8th, 2020) and in Chalon-sur-Saône (Musée Nicéphore Niépce - Oct. 24th 2020 to Jan. 24th 2021).
