Arno Brignon, the first resident to open the way, walked to connect the two spaces of the Terre et Territoires residence. From Tavers and Thoré la Rochette, he photographed, he surveyed the deserted landscapes of Beauce then the undergrowth of Perche Vendomois. On his way, he met the women and men who work, who live here between the Loire and the Loir, between the majestic river and a discreet and mysterious river. From these encounters, he brought back an account which evokes a changing world, which attempts to understand what is the exploitation of the earth by man, ecology, “living here”. This mutation, he delivers it to us in image through an affirmed photographic technique, with expired silver films. And the shots were taken with an outdated amateur camera.

Terre et Territoires is a residence of photographic creation, an invitation to travel in the Centre-Val de Loire Region, from the Loire to the Perche Vendôme via Beauce.
