The making of images


The making of images allows one to see how very diverse cultures represent the similarities and differences they see in their surroundings. The resulting images correspond to four contrasting views of the world found in the works of the five continents: Animism, naturalism, totemism, and analogism.
This surprising journey through the unexplored domain of representation introduces a selection of different types of works, chosen irrespectively of their space/time categorisations. As the reader turns the pages, they will discover how the most familiar and the most enigmatic images present different ways of experiencing the world.
