“I travelled to Normandy and to Brittany. I took pictures of Paris and I understood that I wasn’t interested in just any landscape, that in fact I was incapable of photographing the ‘beautiful’ French countryside. It was only in Lorraine, where the new steelworks had greatly transformed the region, that I really started taking photographs. I realized that it was precisely with this kind of landscape, transformed by contemporary men, that I felt a true affinity.”
That’s my kind of photographer.
