"François Deladerrière’s photographs might seem on first impression about objects been disregarded, about things falling apart at the edge of some unknown terrain, but no, they were taken south of Arles in the Camargue. This is the largest river delta in Europe where the river Rhône transports huge quantities of mud downstream. It seems that the river might have left in its wake these objects to await their fate. Or maybe human hands have been at work throwing away these unwanted objects, waiting for time to do its business. However this terrain is about the after life, where different materials are broken down into simpler forms of matter decomposed by the forces of nature. And that sometime in the future they will be refashioned into other objects."
