L’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. Started five years ago, its ambition is to document in an equal way the 450 natural regions or “countries” composing the French territory.
Starting from these small geographical and cultural entities such as Artois, Morvan or Béarn, Eric Tabuchi and Nelly Monnier patiently and meticulously describe our ways of investing the landscape, of inhabiting it, of shaping it. The roads, the houses, the shops, the activities, the typography of the signs, the names of the villages: they trace at the same time the invariants, the typical things and the deviations from the norm – which, crossed, define a physiognomy of our ways of life and our identities.
The Atlas of Natural Regions Vol.1 is composed of 16 chapters following the rhythm of three regions followed by a theme. On 384 pages, there are more than 650 images that tell the story of architecture as well as its relationship to the landscape. The book is completed by a map serving as an index at the end of the book
