Presentation by Atelier EXB:

" For over ten years, Basque photographer Jon Cazenave has undertaken a long-term project questioning his identity, entitled Galerna (storm in Basque). Devoting himself to his close surroundings: the sea, the mountains, the woodlands, and its prehistorical caves, Jon Cazenave renders the experience of his native land with all its geological diversity and spirituality. The photographs, mostly in B&W, with deep contrasts, immerse the viewer in a multisensorial experience filled with symbolism.

Galerna is an initiatory journey where the power of nature acquires a universal dimension, questioning the concepts of transmission and cultural legacy. An essay by author Kirmen Uribe examines the Basque linguistic founding principles as well as their resonances in Cazenave's work. A text by curator Fannie Escoulen offers an enlightening grasp into the photographer's quest. "

A first self-published version of Galerna was released in 2011. This new enlarged version co-published by Dalpine (Spanish / Basque version) and Atelier EXB (French / English version) on the occasion of an artist residency and the exhibition "Galerna" by Jon Cazenave at the Tabakalera Museum in San Sebastian in 2020.

Cazenave, Jon

Jon Cazenave is a Spanish Basque photographer. Presentation on the artist's website : " His approach to photography starts from an intimate anthropological perspective and develops into a language that incorporates the ancestral sign and symbol to contemporary creation. He works in the field of introspective questioning and the apprehension of knowledge through doubt and inner investigation, taking place in the universe that surrounds him. An attempt of a better understanding of the world but created through the internal study of oneself. " Jon Cazenave has published several books, including "Ama Lur" (Dalpine, 2015), and "Galerna", co-published by Dalpine and Atelier EXB in 2020 in an enlarged version,  after an initial self-published book of the same name in 2011. © Portrait taken from the artist's biography on the website of Tabakalera

He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these...
