The investigation started with creating a photographic observatory and a first campaign of interviews with urban production actors of logistics activity areas in four sites in France and Germany. This approach was inspired by photographic observatories set up by the Ministry of the Environment in several French municipalities at the end of the 1990’s. The selected shooting protocols were thus used to offer a sensitive look on these areas:
– Cécile Cuny worked on the interface between warehouses and public space by reconstructing facade shelves.
– Nathalie Mohadjer went in search of the fragility of people and things, deconstructing the imagery of ”non-place” often associated with logistics areas.
– Hortense Soichet crossed the zones on foot by systematically taking a shot in the direction of the four cardinal points, then installed her camera in two places of sociability.
