-----------------------------------------------------------------

La Montagne neuve (the new mountain) is the former name of a province located in the French department of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, gateway to the Alps, a territory very familiar to me. I have so often surveyed its summits, skirted its torrents and crossed its forests, that these elements seem to have a language. This deeply rural and sometimes hostile territory is home to small, geographically deprived communities whose landscape blends reality and imagination. A growing population, aware of the announced agony of a landlocked, isolated and desertified rural society, is becoming aware of the need to invent new ways of living in the territory. It’s a world that I photograph for its appearances and aspirations, before they can escape me.
