From his first journeys to India and Egypt to the observation of the French southwest landscape, as part of the DATAR project, the book offers an exploration into Pierre de Fenoÿl’s work through about 150 photographs. Haunted by the question of time and memory in photography, de Fenoÿl tirelessly photographed landscapes and revealed their historical and sacred memory.
Alongside the visual exploration of his work, three texts signed by Peter Galassi, Virginie Chardin and Jacques Damez shed light on the multi-faceted figure that was Pierre de Fenoÿl.
