A stairway to heaven
Time has come to leave this earth,
this life, to say adieu to loved ones,
to ascend this stairway to heaven,
the unknown – artificial paradise ?
Through its various questionings,
the passage from life to death recalls
the transition from inert to living.
Does this endless night consists in
a mere return to the stagnant shape ?
Alternatively, does the eternal rest
lay in the continuity of the living ?
Moreover, will any trace
of our existence survive to
our departure ? If so, which one ?
A few scattered bones,
like the very first hominids ?
Various architectural complexes
reminding the huge buildings
erected since ancient times ?
A philosophical, literary,
artistic or even scientific oeuvre,
whose originality, creativity, quality,
confers on it a special durability
and a probable scalability ?
Since contributing to the evolution of society
- rather than to its inertness or withdrawal,
can offer a real meaning to our life ...

Text on the back cover : « In their studio nestled in the heart of the Lauragais, between hills and valleys, Karine Gadré and Monique Samson meet their scientific and artistic views of the landscapes they have photographed. At heart, they have criss-crossed the Lauragais area, in the Occitanie region, and created a new artistic language called PhotoGraphism, which offers a renewed vision of our environment: three-dimensional, animated and poetic at the same time. This is followed by the creation of works of art structured in linear networks, modular grids and other undulating deformations, which, we hope, will propel the reader into an imaginary world that is at once luminous, dynamic and aerial, far from the reality photographed, yet everywhere present. »
