About the Publisher 
ARP2 éditions is a publishing house dedicated to photographic art. More specifically, ARP editions defends the work of author photographers who have a relationship with the landscape – whether this relationship is poetic, philosophical or documentary. Created in 1993 by Gilbert Fastenaekens, himself monitoring publications with the collaboration of graphic designer Joël Van Audenhaege, ARP2 editions has chosen to focus on quality, generating an intimate approach to images. We thus continue to highlight photographic works and authors who, through their deep relationship to the world and the landscape, bring a wealth of reflection both on the status of photography and on our environment in the broad sense of the term.
