A tale of Claudine Doury’s quest for almost thirty years, Amour unfolds in the form of a newspaper in which several eras are mixed. The photographer’s journey, begun in 1991 on the banks of the Russian River, continues in 1997 and again in 2018: the generations succeed one another, the river’s surroundings are transformed and the traditions of the descendants of the Siberians – fade away .
During this “odyssey”, the bonds patiently woven by Claudine Doury with the families and landscapes of the banks of the river are fixed in recurring images with troubling timelessness. By collecting black and white and color photographs mixed with archival images, this book reveals the photographer’s deeply intimate and sensitive relationship to a territory and its history.
The photographer will sign Amour, a poetry extract edited by Chose Commune.
