BIRDS - Christophe Maout

EXB Workshop -

Book signed by the artist.

Format 20,5 x 26 cm. 96 pages, 45 color photographs.


In Des oiseaux, photographer Christophe Maout invites us to rediscover the birds of the cities from the windows of his Parisian apartment while the country is confined in 2020.

He sets up a very particular device associating a pair of binoculars and a camera that takes us back to the origins of the medium: the image circle of the optic projected on the sensitive surface. Varying the time of day, the orientation of the sun and the species of birds, Christophe Maout revives the ornithological tradition of observation, while adding an artistic gesture in the framing and the color. He thus transports us into a world of lightness, alternating points of view, between skies and building roofs, with the clouds and the horizon as the only visual reference points.

This twelfth title of the collection "Des oiseaux" is an ode to the freedom of birds that makes us look up to the sky.

Accompanied by a text by Guilhem Lesaffre.
