Native Land
Publisher's Description
Published to accompany an exhibition in Paris, Native Land explores human beings' attachment to the Earth and the planet's role in forming one's identity, as well as the paths and consequences of human migrations and displacements. The book features photographs, movie stills, multiscreen installations, and press articles, and the subjects range from Tuvaluans forced to leave their Pacific island due to flooding to a human cannonball who catapults himself over the U.S.-Mexico border.

The issues and ramifications of having a homeland are explored by Raymond Depardom, film director and photographer, and Paul Virilio, urban planner and philosopher. There are also texts by Michel Agier, Bruce Albert, and Marc Auge.
