Since April 2020, photographers Ambroise Tézenas and Jérémie Léon have surveyed the Seine valley from Paris to Moisson and taken 400 shots as part of the photographic observatory of the landscapes of the Seine valley in Ile-de-France.
This work is part of a rigorous methodology which consists of selecting strategic and renewable points of view to observe a territory and measure the evolution of its landscapes over time.
111 points of view were retained out of 400 initially selected, 40 of which will be followed by new pictures at regular intervals.
A program offered as part of the Île-de-France Architecture and Landscape Biennial (Bap!). Four events to better understand our environment, its changes, its richness and the capacity for resilience offered by the Seine Valley. These exhibitions and their related events for all ages are offered in order to make as many people as possible aware of a common territory.
The richness and multiplicity of the landscapes of the Seine valley, from the bend of Nanterre marked by the towers of La Défense to the natural amphitheater of the bend of Moisson, highlights the notions of territory. Natural, agricultural, economic, urban, industrial territory… are all concepts addressed during these exhibitions. Unfolding from one side to the other the face-to-face, the intersections and superimpositions of an economic, inhabited and moving river, such is the challenge of the photographic observatory of the landscapes of the Seine valley. . To better understand in a context of climate change, the questions that arise for us: to which territory do we belong? what defines it? what are we attached to? What resources will ensure the survival and development of this territory?
