Caimi & Piccinni in Normandy - In the presence of the absence

It is through a personal, fluid and almost literary narrative that the Franco-Italian duo of photographers interweaves the life of men in their present and past history and that of nature, plants, animals, sea and tides. . This dialogue between man and nature, strongly present in their work, constitutes the scenario, the framework of the stories they tell through their contrasting images. A book published by Pierre Bessard accompanies the exhibition.
