Landscapes. Territoires revEs
A walk through time and space with Jean-Yves Camus
Alliance Française, Eildon GalleryFree admissionNo official opening
To end the year with quiet beauty, the Alliance Française is delighted to present its new exhibition of photos by Jean-Yves Camus.
Dismayed by the thought of global warming and rising water levels, Camus tried to discover “these new lands we could consider settling in”, places that Man could “colonize”, shedding an optimistic light on modern-day concerns.
Through these landscapes, it is Man who is really called into question: what has he done to his environment? What will become of him? To these questions, Camus answers with hope and faith.
From 2010 to 2012, the artist travelled to Iceland, Switzerland and France to capture these moments in the story of the earth.
'Landscapes' has already successfully toured in France, and is now touring Australia, in the Alliances Françaises de Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide.
Camus’s book, Land(escape). Un sentiment de paysage, which includes more than 40 pictures and an essay by Antonio Guzmán, will be sold at the Alliance Française on this occasion.

Specialized in landscapes, Jean-Yves Camus has had a dozen solo exhibitions and published two monographs. He was awarded a prize by Fondation EDF Diversiterre / Espace Électra in 1994. His research, centred on the representation of the territory, has led him from Central America to Northern Europe.
