PhotoPhnomPenh 2011 –Matthieu Gafsou


Admittedly, for each of us, an original landscape, a space of departure exists. But when it comes to landscape, the one who looks at it and parcels out the space, invents it by putting it into a form. Gafsou is Swiss, but he has produced equally remarkable work in Mediterranean countries, in Tunisia, and in the conflicted space of Israel and Palestine. Here he offers, with a precision sometimes tinted with humor, another look at what the Alps have become today. A mountain that is no longer untouched, even though its boulders and glaciers remain impressive. Tourists, winter sports enthusiasts, a whole crowd hurries into these spaces which the photographer reconstructs, in rigorous alternation, expansive views and small significant anecdotes. As always, his color is done with an extreme delicacy, and he invites us to go beyond contemplation to reflect on our own behavior.
