Police et paysages
Police and Landscapes is a uncommon photographic journey amidst the worlds of maintenance of order versus resistance.
The book explores and questions the increasing militarization of our society and of our lives through a hundred photos taken between 2012 and 2018, in the hedge groves of Notre-Dame-des-Landes and the streets of Nantes (France).
♦ The photographer
Yves Monteil is a photographer from Nantes. For more than ten years, he has and continues to be productive in various photographic spheres, notably as assistant photographer as well as documentary photographer.
♦ The providing association
The association Les Ateliers Boh’m was created in 2016 by Claire Leleu and Yves Monteil. Claire works in book editing and Yves is a photographer. Both have a passion for the visual in all it forms, for words, textures, volumes and contrasts.
To edit photographic and literary works, merging both, and taking into account our artistic sensibility, is the Ateliers’ signature.
Police and Landscapes is our first self published book.
♦ The book
We decided to self publish to guarantee our total creative freedom, in both editing and selecting the photos.
It is important to us to create this book as we imagined it, with great care regarding the quality of photographs processing, choice of paper, with the accompaniment of local collaborators known for their expertise.
