Bertrand Fleuret: The Cliffs


Featured image is reproduced from <I>Bertrand Fleuret: The Cliffs</I>, where it appears alongside the caption, "I am standing by a wall of dark cliffs. They form a circle of about 100 meters in diameter."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.

FROM THE BOOK
"I am standing by a wall of dark cliffs. They form a circle of about 100 meters in diameter. Waterfalls, very white, fall into a series of ponds/lakes. There are no visible rivers as if the water eventually disappears into the ground. The rocks have sharp angles and are almost black. They have very little texture and are wet, they look slippery.
There is no noticeable noise, there is a presence of someone else, I do not know who and I cannot see him, or her, or them. The nearest cliff is the highest. For some reason I have to climb, it is a ‘normal’ passage that other people would climb too. There is a destination behind the cliffs…"

- Excerpt is from Bertrand Fleuret's description of the dream upon which The Cliffs is based, reproduced from the book.
