Images Plurielles : Céline Ravier : Déperdition


Images Plurielles publishes Déperdition, a book by Céline Ravier.

Throughout the pages, the author takes us on an intimate journey through an enigmatic forest shrouded in mist, where each step resonates with the echoes of childhood fears. By mixing photographs and texts, she evokes the disturbing experience of loss, that of losing oneself in the twists and turns of nature, but also in the folds of one’s being.

The reader is invited to follow in the author’s footsteps, to let himself be carried away by the torments of the landscape and the emotions that emerge from it. Between poetry and mystery, each image tells a story, each word resonates with the melancholy of wandering.

Déperdition is much more than a simple book of photographs. It is a moving testimony of self-exploration through the landscapes of the soul, a meditation on loss, and the hope that emerges at the bend of the path.

“The world around me no longer has substance. It’s just a succession of crazy repetitions. There, where everything is similar, duplicated, superimposed, where the sole purpose of the elements is to lose me entirely, in my body, in my veins. I run blind under my own weight, my heart beating, in a confused landscape. – Book’s excerpt

“(…) Now alone in the heart of a forest into which, I quote, “one enters like a church”, and which reminds me of the splendid and infernal one immortalized by Lars von Trier in Antichrist, I let myself slide into the margins of the images and I am in turn “She” and “He”, a devastated couple who, in the film, try to get back on track both “good” and “bad”. » – Excerpt from the preface by Philippe Bresson
