Josef Koudelka started using a camera in panoramic format in 1986 while participating in the photographic mission of the DATAR, whose objective was to “represent the French landscape of the 1980s”. He thus criss-crossed France, then the entire world, to take stock of modern humanity’s influence on landscape.

This exhibition gathers 40 panoramic photographs selected by the artist with François Hébel. These images bear witness to major manmade works, ranging from factories to quarries, or enormous mining complexes and abandoned zones. They carry the viewer into inaccessible and little-known areas, between sublime and disarray, to witness the imposing reality of industry that we try now to erase.
