Eric Tabuchi, Nelly MonnierARN ; L’Atlas des Régions Naturelles, Vol. 4
With this fourth instalment of the Atlas of Natural Regions, Eric Tabuchi and Nelly Monnier are continuing their long-term project begun in 2017: the global documentation of the 450 natural regions – or “countries” – that make up the French territory. This extraordinary photographic adventure is set to continue for several years, with one publication every six months.
Travelling around these small geographical and cultural entities, some of which have fallen into disuse in the face of the administrative division of France, the duo collect the visual elements that make up a region. They combine both the distinctive features created by man – traditional architecture, place names, local aesthetics, traces of history – and natural motifs, such as relief, landscapes, colours, vegetation, and so on.
In 384 pages and over 500 images, the Atlas of Natural Regions Vol.4 brings together 12 “portraits” of natural regions, punctuated by 4 thematic entries. As with each volume, the work is accompanied by an index map at the end.
Chapters in the fourth volume:
Argonne, Bresse bourguignonne, Champagne berrichonne, Écussons, Crau, Flandre maritime, Grand Ried, Garage, Minervois, Perthois, Plateau de Saint-André, Silos, Saintonge romane, Vallespir, Velay, Tours Eiffel.
