This time, Françoise Huguier brings back « En route pour Behring – Notes de voyage en Sibérie. » from the other side of the earth, le Great North. What was this "adventuress" looking for? Was it, at firts, to be elsewhere? Things seen and perceived. Naked landscapes, snow and ice, inhabited landscapes near industrial workshops ou sea ports, little towns, villages, huts, tents, sleeepy gulags, gaveyards. Reindeers, , morses, whales, a white bear. Colours, smells. And faces, lives… Nenets, Tatars, Dolgans, Nganassans, Inuits, Bouriates, Russians, Armenieans, Lituanians… Françoise Huguier took six months to approach the mythic frontier beetween her childhood's geography and an adult dream. « En route pour Behring » is her log of this journey.
