For the exhibition the desert presented in June 2000, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain asked six artists to go off into the desert and produce a work that would reflect their vision of it.The works executed for the occasion reveal the contradictions of the desert: a space of unity and contrast where the static contrasts with the perpetual movement of the dunes shifting in the wind. Threatened with obliteration and disappearance, the urgency of capturing the trace of the desert finds an answer in photography and drawings. This book proposes a set of previously unpublished works by Raymond Depardon, William Eggleston, Titouan Lamazou, and Andrei Ujica.
