L'oeil et la terre. Vers une histoire du regard (1900-1950)

Abstract : The Eye and the Land. For a story about Vision (1900-1950)
Using photography as one source of the history of the \"vision\" requires perfecting a specific method of study which combines both serial and qualitative studies. From a cultural viewpoint, it consists in distinguishing different visions which are defined as photographic approaches as well as modes of reading pictures. In the end, studying the modes of influences and the cultural groups evidenced by the differences between the visions should throw various light on the social identity of these groups and on the exchanges they set up between each other. In the village of Méthamis located in the Vaucluse area, the sensitivity to the landscape radically sets the uncharacteristic countryman known as Camille de Graille against the postcard which is the product of an urban vision. Between the focusing on the landscape of the latter and the profound humanism of the former, the Burgues, some learned people who have \"returned\" to the land, embody an intermediate vision.
