 Chili: Les routes de la mémoire
Chili: Les routes de la mémoire
by Patrick Zachmann
Photographer Patrick Zachmann devotes himself to the observation of groups of humans, as a means of questioning their identity and their culture. In this book, he rediscovers Chile, three decades after Pinochet seized power. His images of abandoned villages and derelict industries lost in the desert, which can be reached only by driving endless roads, help us understand the anxiety of the place.

You must feel an affinity for what you are photographing. You must be part of it, and yet remain sufficiently detached to see it objectively. Like watching from the audience a play you already know by heart.
