Reluctant Monoliths, 2009

Conceived and developed in France, in 2009, these images examine the radical transformation of the Loire River Estuary and its traditional industries.
The work focus on the totems/symbols of a myriad of declining industries.
Reluctant Monoliths calls to our attention that all is flow, all boundaries are provisional, all space is permeable. In this realm, we are in a landscape of uncertainty, within a cultural landscape of permanent flux, transition and opposition. Spaces are primed with a sense of purpose yet they are marginal, fragmented and dispersed.
