This was our editors’ pick of the week. The fantastic, maniac creativity of Pierre Leblanc’s series Le Banc (The Bench) was particularly impressive. The photographs were accompanied by this short text:
"It couldn’t go on like this. Things were turning for the worse. A long process of destruction had begun. It became uncontrollable, and spread like lightning… and what should have happened happened, a flash and then nothing. Overtaken by the events, men became afraid, entrenched themselves, isolated themselves. A resistance was organized, but in vain. What remains is ‘The Bench,’ which will tell you of those responsible for this tragedy. What remains is a bench, to learn to be reborn… to gently, slowly rebuild the obscenity of our incoherence and leave a trace behind."
