By reconnecting with the tangible, photography is entering a period of transition.
This book reveals the vitality of a new part of contemporary photographic creation. For a generation, many photographers have been developing original practices, concerned with ethics and ecology. Far from embodying marginal experiences, these alternatives form on the contrary a powerful groundswell.
Some artists value old processes, a slow temporality and forms of co-creation. Many appropriate vernacular archives by hybridizing photography with manual arts such as collage and embroidery. Still others amplify photography through installations.
Activism and poetry mix to propose worlds where it is a question of materiality, gesture, reconciliation and resilience: it is in the body of photography that artists seek to reread the world and invent new ones, through utopias where the imaginary allows to go beyond the cult of images. By reconnecting to the tangible, photography enters a period of transition.
