Basque country

Insights into the Basque country.

Whoever says the Basque country will risk its sens with prudence. For it is a rigged country, filled of myths, folklore, and twaddle; A convenient fiction, a carpet of postcards that must be shaken.
But for this land flooded with mist and populated by legend, one must also forget its precautions and its uses. For in the Basque country there can be no evidence, but only impressions; No itineraries but simple wanderings.
It is this intimate and generous spectacle that Gabrielle Duplantier's photographs attempt to illustrate.
Her journey merges through this incomplete inventory of roads that leads to nowhere and to abandoned roads, blackened by silent rains.
To say this Basque country that accepts only looks made of slowness and humility.
