For ten years, Nicolas Giraud and Bertrand Stofleth crisscrossed a modest but exemplary corner of France, a succession of valleys joining the Loire and Rhône rivers that were one of the cradles of the industrial revolution. La Vallée is the result of this vast photographic project in which each image works like a cross-section of time, bringing together within the frame objects that are distant in time. La Vallée creates a dynamic between the constitutive
elements of a landscape, which also bear witness to its history.
