"For this Crossing of the Massif Central, on the invitation of the association Clermont 2028, I chose to take the road 89 which crosses three departments, the Loire, the Puy-de-Dôme and the Corrèze, between September 2021 and February 2022, with a small film camera with random settings and a use of sensitive films generating a more pictorial invoice thanks to the grain by forgetting the technical codes if need to go quickly, to lighten for the few steps by moving away a little from the road.
To take the 89 is to choose another time, to choose the slowing down. It is to choose the landscape and the meeting in front of the speed. To take the 89 is also to say to oneself that stops are possible, it is to believe in the power of serendipity, in the chance of stops and turns, to criss-cross landscapes and to create this availability for the meeting with people who work, transform, live these territories. It is to let oneself be surprised by their stories, to be surprised with them of these impromptu meetings and of the portraits, taken on the spot, which result from them whereas they were not initially planned in a first intention, like an evidence."
