Item description for Martin d'Orgeval: Paques by Martin D'orgeval...
Of this, his first book, Martin d/Orgeval--who studied at the Sorbonne and has worked as an assistant to Fran ois-Marie Banier--says, "I traveled to Easter Island in the winter. In July. The isolation, the climate and the elements as well as the statues, all created an oppressive atmosphere a long way from the tourist images. I wanted to face that, to grasp this uneasy mixture through my own contemplation... Language of stones, of water, of earth, planar writing. Note it down, gather a vocabulary out of natural elements and human traces. Solitary objects, away from the world... The texture of a rock resonates in me like the vibration of a string. Roughness, buzzing, racket, or, soon, respiration, silence, emptiness. I photograph the permanent. What has always been and will always be; what is constant."
