Pages Paysages (No 7): Anamorphose

  • Comment
192pp. £32.95. Available from Triangle Bookshop, tel 0171 631 1381

Pages Paysages, published at irregular intervals in Paris in a French- English edition, is a large-format landscape periodical with the international outlook and quality-control of Topos. Attractively produced, it is Catholic in its inclusions, with projects as various as Alain Provost's Parc Diderot near La Defense in Paris, urban insertions by Alvaro Siza and Roberto Collova at Salemi in Sicily (see right), and a poetic garden of pines, ivy and hydrangeas in Belgium.

Alongside these are articles that focus on historical example (famous Chinese gardens) or practitioners from related fields who engage with the land in some way, such as light artist James Turrell. A balance between hard and soft landscape emerges; it is the former that features in striking photographs by Patrick Ecoutin, who attends to 'forgotten places...that society has divested of positive values' - a rain-drenched dual-carriageway at dusk, for instance, smeared with lights.
