Madagascar

First Edition
Éditions Jean-Luc Allègre (1997).
Hardcover Book

A profile of Madagascar consisting mainly of the colour photographs of Reunion resident Jean-Luc Allègre. The images, of which there are approximately sixty, are set in context by Geoffroy Mohrain's accompanying descriptions.

Text from the Back Cover

Fragment issu de la dérive des continents ancré au large de l'Afrique orientale, Madagascar est une terre de contrastes unique au monde. La diversité de ses paysages et de son peuple n'a d'égal que l'originalité de sa faune et de sa flore.

Tantôt asiatique, tantôt africaine, la Grande île alterne savanes arides et forêts vierges, lagons lumineux et reliefs austères... Les ethnies aux yeux bridés des Hautes Terres ou à la peau sombre des régions littorales, les lémuriens et les caméléons, les baobabs géants et les orchidées sauvages y forment une insolite mosaïque.

About the Author (from the Back Cover)

Jean-Luc Allègre, photographe indépendant installé à l'île de la Réunion, a découvert Madagascar en 1984. Séduit par l'authenticité de ce pays et la gentillesse de son peuple, il y retourne régulièrement depuis. Cet ouvrage est le troisième qu'il publie après 180 jours dans le ciel d'Afrique, paru aux éditions Olizane, et Terres australes et antarctiques françaises.

Text from the Back Cover (English Translation)

A fragment resulting from continental drift anchored off the east African coast, Madagascar is a land of contrasts unique in the world. The diversity of its landscapes and its people is equalled only by the strangeness of its flora and fauna.

At times Asian, at others African, this Great Island alternates arid savannas and virgin forests, luminous lagoons and forbidding mountains... The slit-eyed tribes of the Highlands and the dark-skinned tribes of the coastal regions, the lemurs and the chameleons, the giant baobabs and the wild orchids form a strange mosaic there.

About the Author (English Translation)

Allured by the authenticity of this country and the kindness of its people, he has returned regularly since. This work is his third to be published after 180 jours dans le ciel d'Afrique, published by Olizane, and Terres australes et antarctiques françaises.
