Reissued for the first time in pocket format, Atlas des Régions Naturelles Vol.1 is, as its name suggests, the first volume of a singular photographic adventure, as much by its dimensions as by its duration. Begun five years ago, its ambition is to document in equal measure the 450 natural regions or “countries” that make up the French territory.
Eric Tabuchi and Nelly Monnier have patiently and meticulously set out to describe the ways in which we live in and shape the landscape, starting with such small geographical and cultural entities as Artois, Morvan and Béarn. Roads, dwellings, businesses, activities, sign typography, village names: they track down invariants, typical features and deviations from the norm—which, when combined, define the physiognomy of our lifestyles and identities.
The Atlas des Régions Naturelles Vol.1 is made up of 16 chapters, each following the rhythm of three regions followed by a theme. On 384 pages, over 650 images tell the story of architecture and its relationship with the landscape.
