Title: NOS FEUX NOUS APPARTIENNENT Photographer: Marine Lanier Publisher: Co-Publication between Poursuite Éditions (Paris/Arles) & Éditions JB (Genève) & Date of publication: 2016 Pages: 80 pages, relié, offset quadri + cover Dimensions: 210 x 280 mm Edition:N/A ISBN: 978-2-918960-93-5 Nos feux nous appartiennent (“The Fires That Bind Us”) gathers together different series that have been echoing each other. This collection explores the theme of the clan and by extension the concept of belonging, through the narratives that run through it and the remote imaginary places that family legends recount. (…)I come from a family of gardeners, landscapers, plant breeders, horticulturists, and florists. For five generations the men of my clan have organized space, and sought to maintain and discipline it. They have pruned trees, carried off and burned plant waste; kept a watchful eye over fires; towed away roots; raked the leaves of yards littered with gravel; planted hedges; delivered flowers; adorned funerals, baptisms, birthdays and weddings; and participated in all the rituals that shape lives. The scent of orange blossoms has a transfixing effect on our family. Its perfume leaves us stunned and brings to mind withered flowers, green moss, sheared stems, and rising sap. Fire is the crux of this structure. It is a highly symbolic catalyst that acts as a rallying force. The landscapes of Armenia are made up of great charred deserts, military viewpoints that are depopulated of bellicose events. They are places of gunshots and lookouts, spots from which shots are fired. We see my brother’s soot-covered face (…) Marine Lanier

Shane Lavalette was commissioned by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta to create a new series of photographs for their 2012 exhibition, “Picturing the South.” Lavalette’s monograph, One Sun, One Shadow, is an extension of this body of work. Native to the Northeast, it was primarily through traditional music — the sounds of old time, blues, and gospel — that Lavalette had formed a relationship with the South. With that in mind, the region’s rich musical history became the natural entry point for this project and the resulting photographs. One Sun, One Shadow includes a text by artist and poet Tim Davis.
