Opale et Albâtre

 

 

Opale et Albâtre is a photographic

 

exploration of the Picardy and Normandy

 

coastline, from north to south, from the

 

dunes of Berck to Ault, where the cliffs

 

start all the way down to Le Havre.

 

 


The cliffs, the bunkers and the post-war

 

reconstructions, combined with the old

 

villages and towns, make this a fascinating

 

coastline, with stunning landscapes - very

 

sculptural landscapes.

 

 

Out of season these towns are desolated

 

and show purely what men have made of it.

 

The shutters are closed, the sea is always

 

near and next summer is in sight.
