La montagne qui marche (*signed*)

Presentation of the book project by the author:

[translation L'Ascenseur Végétal]

" La montagne qui marche, a photobook about erosion and our relationship to the coastline.

I peeled the dune like you peel an onion. Layer after layer, stratum after stratum. For almost two and a half years, in Soulac-sur-Mer, I followed the gusts of wind and the winter storms, the back-and-forth of the trucks in charge of bringing new sand to the beaches, the hand of the archeologists digging deep into those beaches, and the repeated waves of tourists in the summer.

I observed the dune's complex and fragile ecosystem, the incredible diversity of its fauna and flora, and especially its perpetual movement. "

Sébastien Sindeu is a French photographer based in Bordeaux, member of Divergences. A natural attraction draws him regularly to the ocean coastlines and the realm of the seas, but he is also passionate about the matters of flows and mobility. His work about the main European straits was published as "Détroits" (Le Bec en l'air, 2012). In 2023, he publishes the photobook "La montagne qui marche" ["The Mountain that Walks"] (Studio Kochab) about the erosion of the coastline along the Atlantic coast in the Médoc region. Sébastien Sindeu was part for several years of the collective LesAssociés with whom he published " D'ici ça ne paraît pas si loin " (Le Bec en l'air, 2020), a survey of the new French region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine in the times of the fusion of regions in France and arrival of the fast-train TGV line in Bordeaux. © Portrait taken from the Divergences website
