A tribute book to Bobby Sands who died on May 5, 1981 at 1:17 in the morning.
Bobby Sands was previously arrested and sentenced to 14 years in prison for possession of firearms. On March 1, 1981, he began a hunger strike followed by nine other political prisoners who were members of the IRA (Irish Republican Army) and the INLA (Irish National Liberation Army).
Their demands: to obtain the status of political prisoners to which they are entitled. They all died, the last one in almost general indifference.

With texts by Christian Caujolle and François Cheval

May 68, it is of course the events which will ignite France, but it is also the birth of an important photographer who with some other companions and Christiane his wife will create the agency VIVA a few years later.
On the evening of May 3, Claude Dityvon heard on the airwaves the announcement of the first riots in the Latin Quarter, and the next day, he left the apartment in which he painted again in order to earn a living, to go photograph his May 68.
He photographs for himself, and will propose a “press antiphotography”. As he said: “I allowed myself all the audacity, blurred, moved, close-up. I photographed freely, without any constraints.” It affirms a tone, a way of seeing and creates a “visual writing”. Thus, one night, he will offer us this extraordinary image of a young man sitting on a chair, at 2 o’clock in the morning, wrapped in tear gas on Saint-Michel Boulevard, seeming “to mock the ultimate assault of a CRS squadron”.

Regla by Nicola Lo Calzo

Couverture de Regla par Nicola Lo Celzo
“In ‘Regla’, Nicola presents a magnificent view into current Cuban uncertainty, where the themes of marronage and resistance offer an alternative to the twin towers of communist regimentation and touristic exotica, both reliant on folkloric kitsch. Instead, the autonomous and historically continuous Abakuá represents self-curation and definition, answering the Cuban Kongos rhetorical question: ¡¿Somos o no somos?! (‘Are we, or are we not’!)”

Faubourg Treme by Alexis Pazoumian

Couverture de Faubourg Treme par Alexis Treme
“There are many similarities between Louisiana and my country of origin, Armenia. That they are a victim of a natural disaster or a crime against humanity, a doggedness of the history(story) bruised these populations, but never overcame, on the contrary even, their fighting spirit… Here, as in my travels, I have witnessed a people faced with a key issue : the reconstruction. A survival instinct transcend these women, men and children. It is this vital force which I wanted to retranscribe in this series, bringing me to these people, where the strength of their expression view each of my portraits.

Ève Réincarnée by Colette Pourroy

“These images seem haunted by the train of memory that inexorably pursues its course from childhood to adulthood. Dormant yet resistant, they recount a story that until now remained on the threshold of words and whose photographic transposition constitutes a palliative remedy to the pain of enunciation”. Héloïse Conésa

Nordic Noir by Sébastien Van Malleghem

Couverture de Nordic Noir par Sébastien Van Malleghem
“In ‘Nordic Noir’, with breath-taking and timeless landscapes, scenes of life and harsh portraits, the series is closer to a constellation than a linear path. In the explosion of emotions that is the series, Sébastien Van Malleghem finds the right balance between the sublime and the banal, between the grandiose and the intimate.” Marie Papazoglou (extract).

L’autre rive by Émeric Lhuisset

The photographs will not be fixed, they will evolve with the sunlight, to be replaced by blue monochromes. The blue of this sea in which so many vanish, but also the blue of Europe.
