This June 26th, the island of Madagascar will celebrate 60 years of independence.

Between 1994 and 2010, photographer Bernard Deschamps made numerous trips to Madagascar. After crossing the island from north to south and east to west, he delivers to us an intensely personal vision, soaked in poetry, of this land on the fringes of the African continent.

« The light of Madagascar, the skies, and the moments of daily life for the Madagascans are the ingredients to these photographs. Behind their charm lies the simplicity, gentleness, and elegance of these people. The closeness I wanted to achieve with them directed me toward a portraiture where the intimate moments that only photography can communicate are transmitted. »

Bernard Deschamps takes from his successive travels a series of images that he constructed and developed with the delicate touch that also characterizes his photography and his connection to the world.
