Photographs by Raphael Dallaporta.
Editions GwinZegal, 2013. 10 pp., colro illustrations throughout, 9½x13".
In autumn 2010, Raphae¨l Dallaporta travelled to Bactria, northern Afghanistan, with a specially created pacifist drone. Designed to give a French- Afghan archaeological team a new perspective on its fieldwork, it photographed the historical palimpsest on the ground, capturing Achaemenid Empire-era fortifications and the remains of an aqueduct built by a long-extinct civilization, as well as surveying the strategic mountain passes used by Alexander the Great. Ruins is a photographic record of the drone’s flights and the traces left by history, as well as a testament to a unique adventure.
