Bertrand Carrière, Berneval-le-Grand, France (Stairs and cliff), 2003

Bertrand Carrière's Caux captures muted aspects of a turbulent history along the Normandy Coast, particularly the beach at Dieppe, where many Canadian soldiers fell in the Dieppe Raid. His photographs uncover the ruins of the strange legacy left behind in the landscape, where cliffs rise up in an impenetrable fortress of harsh and arid beauty.
Curated by Marnie Fleming.
