Jean Gaumy: D'Après Nature


A student of modern literature, Jean Gaumy started his professional career as a newspaper editor and photographer for a daily newspaper in France. His first publication was L'hôpital (The Hospital, 1976), a stark statement on the French health system. His 1983 study of French prison life was likewise considered pioneering. In 1977 Gaumy joined Magnum and became a full member in 1986. Since then, Gaumy has made both films and photoworks. This beautiful, large-format publication is based upon Gaumy's hikes and climbs in the Occitan Piedmont and the French Pyrenees. Superbly printed in black and white on matte paper stock, Gaumy's photographs detail the pitted mountainscapes of these regions, both up close and from afar, in an austere but luxuriant document of geologic time. The volume closes with excerpts from René Daumal's great mountaineering novel Mount Analogue (1937). D'Après Nature will delight all connoisseurs of the photobook.

Jean Gaumy: D’Après Nature

Jean Gaumy: D’Après Nature

The product shot for Jean Gaumy’s D’Après Nature shows an oversize landscape-format hardcover, with a jacket cover image that might be a photograph or an abstract drawing, like one of Henri Michaux’s scratchy calligraphic ink works. Encountering the volume physically in a bookstore, one would at first fare little better, as the cover only resolves into legibility once your nose is about six inches from it: then suddenly a black-and-white photograph of a snowy mountainscape, striated with bare pines and zigzagging paths, snaps into focus.
D'Après Nature (Xavier Barral, 2010) is one of the most superbly designed and printed photography monographs currently available on the D.A.P. list—from the jacket to the linen binding to the beautiful printing of Gaumy’s beautiful photographs of the valleys and mountains of the Piedmont and the French Pyrenees. With their alternations of snow and rock, these images nudge the viewer into a perceptual gear that at times feels closer to character-reading than image-gazing, insofar as the eye, wandering across these heavily pitted black-and-white landscape views, tends to be scrutinizing “marks.” Lest this imply an extremity of contrast that dispatches each image into poles of black and white, many of the photographs also offer amazing tonal nuance: one somewhat atypical image of a small lake—in fact the scale is weirdly elusive—endows the water with such luminosity that the many shades of grey among the rocks surrounding it come as a pleasant second wave of surprise. continue to blog
