Bamako 2011 –François-Xavier Gbré


Migratory movements have produced “no man’s lands” throughout history, but never more than today, due to worldwide demographic expansion and growing urban sprawl. My photos show some of these residual zones, documenting their past and questioning their future: Tiberias in Israel, the Modibo Keita pool in Bamako and, in France, high-rise housing on the Duchère estate in Lyon and the Poyaud factory in Sugères. Although abandoned, these places are still worth a thousand words.
