The AlaReLa (Alaotra Resilience Landscape) Madagascar project started in November 2013, with a project life of three years. One of the objectives is to understand the complex human-environmental system of the Alaotra. The project consists of three phases: understanding, exploring, communicating, with the latter ongoing, from inception to end of the project, and beyond. […] In the following we present some of the photography taken during the first session of the photographer in the Alaotra. Lucienne Wilmé provided the caption text from a researcher’s perspective, Patrick Waeber drafted this Introduction and Ihoby Randriamalala translated it into Malagasy.
The Tokyo Subway is immense. Ignoring all the train lines, suburban links, etc. it is over 300km. Everything about it is dizzying, the scale, complexity, signage. You can travel for hours (without purpose…) and never get bored.

Despite Tokyo’s image as a “future metropolis” much of the system is showing it’s age. Where the old and new meet it can be jarring: changing from an old to a new line can mean going from aging yellow tile, to sleek white panelling.

Here is presented this exhibition.

Discount Fuel project. Two thousands miles of ride in the south, one camera and the idea to gather visual prints of what can actually be seen in the USA. Four days to wipe out thirty years of exposure to American culture, four days to rework, reshape my vision of USA.

Arnaud’s work around the Alaotra lake have the great merit to show locals from the inside. He depicts their vast diversity, placing them in the precariousness, the resourcefulness and the fragility of their existence.
