Arpenteurs – by Anne Favret and Patrick Manez

The series “Les Arpenteurs” presents a photographic account made at the observatory of the Calern plateau, located on the heights of Grasse. From this place in which they immersed themselves, the two photographers construct the vision of a contemporary utopia where the production of knowledge becomes a place of the imagination.

“Is there a world where your past reappears as if it were reality? This world is known to fans of fantasy literature and moviegoers, including admirers of Andrei Tarkovsky or Steven Soderbergh. (…) Anne Favret and Patrick Manez are a bit like the hero of Solaris. They took a closer look at a strange city, the Calern Plateau astrometric observatory located between earth and sky, not so different from a space station.” Michel Poivert
