Concrete forest

Editorial

Concrete Forest (Forêt de Béton) is the culmination of an artistic exploration of the Champel plateau, captured through a harmonious blend of visual and literary elements. In collaboration with the writer Lily Mabura, this book offers a sensory immersion into an urban environment often overlooked. I had the privilege of bringing this experience to life by working on the editorial text-image relationship at HEAD, under the guidance of Alban Thomas. The book is a deliberate fusion of Mabura’s evocative prose and captivating visuals, thus creating an intimate dialogue between the reader and the urban environment of the Champel plateau. « Concrete Forest » transcends conventional storytelling boundaries to provide a unique aesthetic and literary experience, uniting the artistic perspectives of photography and writing.
