2008 Signs of cities: Tel-Aviv, road of Ariel to Jerusalem
Israel 60 for 60 book pages with 6x7 medium format camera in 3 days of shooting. The French photographer brings us closer to the inherent beauty of the ordinary in those contested lands, and allows us to see something common, deeply ingrained in the life of all human beings.
Through these photographs, one rediscovers a landscape thought familiar, and even the banal takes a new
dimension, in turn lyric, mysterious or simply of an insolent and previously unseen beauty. Yannick Verdier-Monsegur, through the lens of his medium format camera, becomes an enabler of this beauty, at the price of an implacable honesty of one with oneself.
