Objets d affection
Dans un contexte de mobilité croissante et de mondialisation de la société, se définir en tant qu'individu se complique. Il faut pouvoir à la fois présenter une définition de soi-même cohérente et singulière, et trouver sa place au sein d'un groupe aux frontières de plus en plus incertaines. Si chaque individu peut composer son espace intime comme il le souhaite, il ne le fait toutefois pas n'importe comment mais en tant qu'être social. L'auteur analyse de quelle manière nos contemporains disposent leurs objets dans l'espace domestique et comment ces objets orchestrent des passages d'un mode de vie à un autre. Les histoires d'objets aimés ou détestés constituent en effet un bric-à-brac de l'intime dans lequel, fouillant les armoires et les tiroirs, explorant les salons et les greniers, nous allons découvrir des petits riens tels que le chapelet en plastique de Valérie, les bouteilles d'eau vides de Sandra, le briquet jetable d'Antoine, la robe blanche de Sylvie, les mèches de cheveux de Gisèle, les bois de cerf de Bernard, la poupée de Paulette, les chandeliers de Marie-Anne ou les fossiles d'Henri.

Alphaville Jean Luc Godard 1965
A striking black-and-white hybrid of film noir and science fiction, Alphaville (1965) has proved to be one of the most enduringly popular of Jean-Luc Godard's films of the 1960s. Working without sets, special effects, or even a script, Godard created a dystopian vision of a technocratic city of the future that continues to resonate with filmmakers today. Alphaville pits secret agent Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine) against Alpha 60, the supercomputer that presides over a city where weeping is outlawed, poetry goes unrecognized, and the words conscience and love have ceased to exist. Lemmy's mission is to capture the renegade scientist Professor von Braun (Howard Vernon), but it is complicated when he falls in love with the professor's ravishing daughter Natasha (Anna Karina). In this exploration a Godard masterpiece, published on the fortieth anniversary of its release, Chris Darke uncovers the film's unique combination of genres and styles and draws on new interviews with the director's collaborators to chronicle the film's production. Analyzing Alphaville in its historical context, he also examines how the film influenced Godard's later work, and explores Alphaville's "afterlife" in the work of other filmmakers and artists.

Award-winning photographer Anne Geddes founded a new tradition in visual storytelling and captivated an international audience. Now, after spending 12 months photographing, Anne reveals a range of images that are, in her own words, among the most personally rewarding she has ever created. A beautiful gift book of more than 100 never-before-published photographs, BEGINNINGS will be released worldwide on 10.10.10 in countries including, the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and Poland. “I have always been fascinated by elements of nature at the moment of transformation,” comments Anne. “Babies are the human face of beginnings, but all of nature is caught in this insistent stream of seasons, of aging and rebirth, of concealment and bursting forth. Every time I unwrap a newborn, even after all these years of photographing them, I am aware of the miracle before me. This book, Beginnings, took me on a journey of discovery to reveal these everyday miracles of nature, these complementary wonders, in imagery.” Continuing in the tradition that has made her one of the most sought-after and popular photographers in the world, in BEGINNINGS, Anne Geddes presents the simple and elegant elements of nature as we have never seen them before. With her camera, she has conceived a fresh story about the delicate and powerful mystery of new life that will inspire nature lovers just as surely as her images of babies have captured the imaginations of people around the globe. She reveals the intricate beauty of birds’ nests, the delicacy of eggs, and the glorious color hidden inside the tight, unopened petals of a blossom before it blooms. Then, she expands on her visual metaphor to reveal surprising and illuminating juxtapositions of beginnings in floral and human forms. Once again, Anne Geddes draws our eye to celebrate those treasures worth nurturing and protecting. Told in a language of love that is understood by so many cultures and people of all ages, BEGINNINGS is sure to transcend boundaries, as her other internationally bestselling books have done.
It Could Happen to You
Martha Brockenbrough's It Could Happen to You is a delightfully funny diary of the author's own pregnancy through the first year of her daughter's life. It is the perfect antidote to all of the patronizing, horribly dull pregnancy books, which are long on advice and short on laughs.It Could Happen to You began as a column Brockenbrough wrote for the Microsoft Network while she was pregnant. During its tenure on MSN, it was the most widely read column about pregnancy and motherhood on the Internet. It's easy to see why. Brockenbrough's amusing approach to pregnancy and motherhood will strike a chord with experienced moms and the newly pregnant alike, who may wonder, as the author did, "Do I really have to wear maternity clothes?"Throughout the book, Brockenbrough shares her joys and her fears, and asks the questions every new mom wants to know, such as, "Why do old ladies keep telling me my baby is cold?" and shares the realization that "When you're a mother, your guilt light goes off the second you start doing something for you, instead of something for your child." A few not-to-be-missed chapters written by her husband, Adam, such as "A Guy's Guide to Baby Holding," provide a comical male perspective on the whole experience.Refreshingly honest and funny, It Could Happen to You is just right for bolstering the most important tool a new parent has-a sense of humor.
