Contours is a study of the landscape that can be found in the suburbs of Paris; it looks at how it is used by its citizens and managed by its state. It tries to get past the stereotypes that have come to be associated with the territory and document it as a region in its own right, not only as a periphery. The work focuses on a selection of natural areas, which illustrate the relationship between the landscape and those that form it.” - Shane Lynam
