"Retour, mais vers quoi ? Revenir sur ses pas, mais dans quel but ? La vérité est que tous deux avons partie liée depuis longtemps avec ces confins de l'Afrique et de l'Arabie; cette Corne fameuse qui, des sables de Mersa Tekle au cap des Aromates, des splendeurs haut perchées du Wollo abyssin aux sauvageries bantoues de la vallée de l'Omo, dessine comme un accent circonflexe coiffant l'Afrique orientale. A chacun son initiation. La mienne fut éthiopienne. Et cruelle : le monde était effectivement méchant. On pouvait y mourir au pied des maisons où festoyaient les riches. Pendant dix années au moins, cette Corne fut, pour moi, le canton privilégié d'une géographie personnelle, quelque chose comme un secret personnel, un lieu fondateur où je reviens sans cesse. Dix fois, quinze fois ... Aucun ailleurs, nulle partie du monde, aucun lieu ne compta dans ma vie autant que celui-là. J'ai toujours su qu'un jour je repartirais vers l'Abyssinie." J.-C. G. "Longtemps après ma première visite en Ethiopie, j'ai gardé une joie douce et un peu mystérieuse en pensant à ce pays unique, pudique et mélancolique. C'était au milieu des années soixante. Je suivais la reine Elisabeth en visite officielle dans cette Abyssinie féodale. Par la suite, les voyages ne furent que prétextes pour retrouver cette sensation et revoir cette Ethiopie. Aujourd'hui, en remontant la route historique, ma nostalgie a disparu. J'ai découvert un pays en paix, un pays nouveau, enfin débarrassé de son passé douloureux." R.D.

Since early in its history, photography has been used by a diversity of travellers, whose collected photographs have been compiled into albums. But Photographic Travel as a genre of art did not appear before the second half of the twentieth century, and had a singular fate and fortune in the US as well as in Europe. The initial objective of some itinerant photographers is to make a book; their shooting practice is conditioned by this objective, as well as their travel experience. Their books – designed as one coherent hole – refer to their wandering experience, even though their stories are never completely free from fiction. In these books, their travels are converged, and their subjectivity is revealed. It is is therefore relevant to call such books made of photographies, and possibly words about the travel experience, Photographic Travel books (comparably to Travel books). Danièle Méaux has tackled the task of characterizing this genre.

Interpersonal Encounters in Contemporary Travel Writing

Author: Catharine Mee
Publisher: Anthem Press

This critical study examines the theme of interpersonal encounter in a range of late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century travel writing written in French and Italian. Structured typologically, each chapter focuses on a typical activity that brings traveller-protagonists into contact with other people. Drawing on literary critical studies of travel writing, sociological and anthropological approaches to tourism, as well as research in French and Italian area studies, ‘Interpersonal Encounters in Contemporary Travel Writing’ locates the concept of encounter within the context of modern tourism.

Miroirs, fragments, mosaïques... L'œuvre d'art au XXe siècle s'est construite selon certains principes de discontinuité. La totalité et l'unité de l'œuvre ont été soumises à des liaisons et déliaisons particulièrement marquées. Cet ouvrage explore ces opérations dans les domaines des arts plastiques, du cinéma, de la littérature, de la musique, de la photographie. Certaines opérations insistent d'un langage à l'autre. Leur repérage dans des œuvres diverses permet de dégager les matrices de la création artistique au XXe siècle. La notion de " schème " est particulièrement utilisée pour réfléchir et analyser la fabrique de l'art. Les œuvres étudiées ici sont celles de Marcel Proust et de Gérard Macé, de Paul-Armand Gette et de Français Méchain, de Raymond Reynaud et de François Righi, de Raymond Depardon, de Henry Cowell et de Luciano Berio, et d'autres.

A Tourist in Africa (21)

Author: Evelyn Waugh
Publisher: Penguin UK
ISBN: 0718197771
Pages: 176
Year: 2012-05-31
In this brilliant travel diary Evelyn Waugh captures a portrait of Africa and the Levant as it was emerging from the shadow of WW II and into the post- colonial order. He reports on Port Said, Aden, Kenya, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanganyika, Rhodesia, Mozambique, Bechuanaland and South Africa. Waugh was no defender of the established order, but nor did he succumb to hype, either. He knew the emergers were going to get something far different from what they expected.

X93;At the age of 22 I was sent to Saigon to cover the war as a photojournalist. I was too late for Indochina, and too early for Vietnam. Muggers robbed me on my arrival, and I lived in a small hotel by the river. I drove towards the front in an old Citroën. I think I was happy. I returned some years later. It was for another war, and the famous reporters had left. The streets were full of GIs and their girlfriends, of blind bomb victims and so many children returning to school. It was the end of an epoch, people would hand flowers to the soldiers. Everybody wanted to leave, and it was cheap to stay at luxury hotels. To forget my heartache, I got drunk and walked the streets all day. The city was very generous and welcomed me with open arms, so I lost sense of time. I stayed for months in this city that no longer exists. The last time I went there I was at peace with things, and at the War Remnants Museum I visited my friends who had died on the battlefield. Today, the city has another name and has fully entered globalization.” Raymond Depardon.

Extrait: ... naguere, traite de Danse, M. Rodenbach, ecrit aisement des phrases absolues, sur ce sujet vierge comme les mousselines et meme sa clairvoyance--a propos d'une statue exposant, deshabillee, une danseuse--les accumule, les allonge, les tend par vivants plis; puis constate le soin propre aux ballerines depuis les temps de compliquer de toutes sortes d'atours vaporeux l'ensorcellement des danses, ou leur corps n'apparait que comme le rythme d'ou tout depend mais qui le cache . Lumineux a l'eblouissement. Une armature, qui n'est d'aucune femme en particulier, d'ou instable, a travers le voile de generalite, attire sur tel fragment revele de la ) forme et y boit l'eclair qui le divinise; ou exhale, de retour, par l'ondulation des tissus, flottante, palpitante, eparse cette extase. Oui, le suspens de la Danse, crainte contradictoire ou souhait de voir trop et pas assez, exige un prolongement transparent. Le poete, par une page riche et subtile ('), a, du coup, restitue a l'antique fonction son caractere, qu'elle s'etoffe; et, sans retard, invoque la Loie Fuller, fontaine intarissable d'elle-meme--pres le developpement de qui ou les trames imaginatives versees comme atmosphere, les coryphees du Ballet, court-vetues a l'exces, manquent d'ambiance sauf'l'orchestre et n'etait que le costume simplifie, a jamais, pour une spirituelle acrobatie ordonnant de suivre la moindre intention scripturale, existe, mais invisible, dansle mouvement pur et le silence deplace par la...
