The project

Marseille / Mer is the second publication of the Seriti editing compagny. It also is an experience of collaboration between Marie Lan and Thomas Boivin, a graphical an editorial work to get the most out of what we wanted to show,  both as an editor and has an author.


"This book come from several short trip I made at Marseille, during spring to autumn 2011, from may to octobre. I was there first to visit a friend, but, a bit suffocated with Paris - a city that I love above all - I came also with the idea to see the sea, perhaps with Plossu's work in mind. So I took with me an old nikon with a 50mm, a lens that I was almost never using at that moment. I like the pictures I took these first 4 days so much - very different from the one I was making in Paris - that I decided to come down to Marseille every month as long as there will be light. This book is a selection of the images I took during theses moments, far away from the work I was doing in Paris. And that's why I was mainly aiming at the horizon, the light, the sea - more than toward the city itself. I came there to be in peace and see far away. Marseille looked to me as a blacony over the sea, and that's what I wanted to remember from it, and to show"

Why fund it?

The founding will help to pay both a part of the printing - along with money from the editing compagny and the author - and the shippment. It will also help to make wet prints for the oppenning exhibition.

If we'll ever collect more than we ask, it will be directly invested in new books to come.


Les Éditions Seriti were born from the desire to conceive books with a sensitive and uncompromising approach. Each published book is designed as a privileged dialogue with the photographer. It’s the unique outcome of a photographic and editorial meeting.
