I was recently reading about “The Open Road” by David Company. This new photo book published by Aperture illustrates through four generations of American photographs, the influence of the road in the American photographic culture. On the eve of publishing this new set of images, it makes me think of “No Postcards Here” and the similarity with the spirit of The Open Road. Exploration is at the heart of the beginning of this project. Exploration and photography. The close relationship between the two words is certainly the reason for my photography and without it I wouldn’t be a photographer now.
These photographs illustrate a two week trip between the Aubrac and Haute Loire areas.
