Presentation by Atelier EXB:

" How do we perceive our environment, what is our relationship to the sensitive world? How to capture the elusive in photography?

For this new series, Terri Weifenbach has examined living things, nature, water, air, light, fire, and questions the ability of photography to capture the evanescence of natural and sensitive phenomena. Based on data from scientific instruments that measure meteorological manifestations such as cloud formation with great precision, the American photographer invites us to explore a nature perceived through its intimate variations of light, humidity or heat with all the poetry and delicacy that characterize her work: from the salt marshes of St. Catherines Island, to the deep valleys of Montana, from the immemorial parks of Nara, in Japan, to the Jardin des Plantes of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. The photographic gesture becomes perception. Where are we ? The reader will not know until the end ... 

An essay by Luce Lebart, photography historian and curator, on the emergence of Renaissance artists' interest in meteorological phenomena until the first scientific studies on clouds published at the dawn of the 19th century, inscribes Terri Weifenbach's photographic approach in the long artistic quest to try to restore the sensibility of our world. "

Weifenbach, Terri

Terri Weifenbach is an American photographer and teacher, who states herself that the photobook is central to her artistic practice. She now resides in Paris, France. Terri Weifenbach is a photographer of nature, and one could say of its gentleness. She uses depth of field and blur to create a dreamlike atmosphere in photographs that are in a way suspended in time... Among her important photobooks, the first one of them "In Your Dreams" (Nazraeli, 1997) was included by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in their book "The Photobook: A History volume II" (Phaidon, 2007). She then also published, among others, "Hunter Green" and "Lana" (Nazraeli, 2000), "Between Maple and Chestnut" (Nazraeli, 2012), "Gift" in collaboration with Rinko Kawauchi (IMA, 2014), "Des oiseaux" (Editions Xavier Barral, 2019) and "Cloud Physics (Atelier EXB, 2021). In 2015 she received a Guggenheim Fellowship. © Portrait taken from the Guggenheim Foundation website

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...
