Champs de bataille [Battlefields] is a phenomenal book authored by Yan Morvan. The book is published by Éditions Photosynthèses. Yan worked on this project for ten years, photographing in the present day the sites of battles that shaped our history. For ten years, he thought of nothing else. I’ve known Yan for forty years, since the publication of his first images in Photo au milieu in the 1970s.
