Following the footsteps of an unknown World War I photographer, Bertrand Carrière photographed the contemporary landscapes that once were the scene of infamous battles. His resulting photographic series, titled Lieux Mêmes has recently been exhibited at Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto. Although the show has ended, I’m certain this won’t be the last time we’ll be seeing this series. I interviewed Carrière for the occasion, trying to get a sense of its preoccupations and process.
