Les Jardins de mon père [My Father’s Gardens]
Bernard Joseph photographs the gardens of a miner, his father. There he reveals all that tends towards plenitude, harmony and fertility. Small plots of land become a veritable cosmos, a private space exposed to the passing of time.
Gisèle Bienne writes based on a visit to Bernard Joseph’s photographic gardens, summoning her own spaces.
A writing between recollection and poetry.
