Photographs by Bertrand Fleuret.
J&L Books, 2012. 64 pp., 32 color illustrations, 7x10".
French photographer Bertrand Fleuret (born 1969) has made some of the most poetical and beautifully produced photobooks of the past ten years-among them The Risk of an Early Spring and Landmasses and Railways, published by J&L Books, who brings us Fleuret’s latest volume-a continuation of Landmasses and Railway’s exploration of the moods and imagery of imaginary worlds. Several years ago, Fleuret had an unusually intense dream that began with him standing by a wall of dark cliffs. When he awoke, he found that the details of the dream remained oddly vivid, and he decided to reconstruct it in photographs. This volume reproduces the sequence of color photographs along with Fleuret’s account of the dream.
