Neige (French Edition)
by Bernard Descamps
Publisher's Description
Snow. Endless snow, like a sheet of untouched Arches cover paper, waiting for the markings of pen and ink—a materia prima broken only by the protruding rocks and denuded trees that create such dramatically different vistas in Spring. These photographs are easily confused with dry point etchings or softground intaglio works, each tree shadow and granite outcropping rendered in shades of black so similar to a well-made engraving. Descamps describes his experience making these photographs. "I walked for days on end in the beautiful light, wrapped in the silence of the snow in the valley of the Champsaur, in the Valdegaudemar, the Queyras, and the steep cirque at Prapic. I crossed the Devoluy with its ski resorts lost in the fog, I hung around car parks invaded by snow and danced with a few stray dogs..." Neige has been printed as a small exhibition catalogue.
