Bureau d'Investigation Photographique (BIP), Kyrielle, Editions Incertain Sens, Rennes, 2017, ed. 300

The BIP (Bureau of Photographic Investigation) is a French collective of seven photographers and this accordion represents ten years of work carried out between 2005 and 2015. The photographers are: Antoine Chaudet, Bruno Elizabeth, Richard Louvet, Damien Mousseau, Emilie Traverse, Matthieu Tremblin and Philemon Vanorle.

The structure of this book is based on a Kyrielle, which is a French form of rhyming poetry, and here each photographer chose an image that responded to the one before it, thus creating a work that is connected by the associations each photographer discerned in the previous work. The result is an accordion exhibition of the group's work. Also included in this book is a sheet with the photographers names and the works of their's included in this book. 

34 double-sided pages, individual pages 8.5" x 6.25", and when fully opened 17' 8.5".
