“The photographs of Francis Deladerrière represent objects despised, abandoned the confines of an unknown territory In fact, this area is quite known and mapped.. These images were taken south of Arles, Camargue It s’ is the largest delta in Europe, including the Rhone carries huge amounts of mud. it looks like the river gave up on its shores these objects, awaiting their fate Or it could be that human hands got rid of these unwanted objects, leaving to time to do its work of destruction. So some afterlife we speak this area, where different materials are reduced to the most basic forms of material gradually broken down by the forces of nature. Who knows, some of them may be recycled to create new objects. “
