And then goes... Meeting Eric Franceschi


And we are indeed invited to a meeting with, as its starting point, "Et puis s'en vont... [And then goes...]", a book that is home to many political photographs taken by French photographer Éric Franceschi. In the harsh Pre-Alps where he now lives, the photographer speaks simply to camera about his professional journey, his attachment to humans, to landscapes, to the so-called off-camera that he always included, the constraints of the commission. An unusual take, between press photographer and auteur, which reflects his way of being in the world.
