Eric Tabuchi and Nelly Monnier by their meticulous photographic documentation, reveal the unobvious image of France.

In 2017, the couple of artists started the Atlas des Régions Naturelles, an exhaustive and idiosyncratic inventory of France. Their plan is to take 50 photographs of each of the country’s 500 “natural regions,” a geographic unit borrowed from an obsolete pre-1789 map.

The purpose was to create a photographic archive documenting the great diversity - but also their progressive standardization - of the landscapes and more particularly of the buildings that we find on French territory. The project is expected to be completed in 2024.
