The Galerie Le Magasin de Jouets in Arles currently presents the exhibition Le Royaume with works by Leica photographer Stéphane Lavoué. The show continues until 25 December 2017.
In 2010, the French photographer discovered an extraordinary region in the United States: the Northeast Kingdom, situated on the Canadian border in the northeast corner of the U.S. state of Vermont. The area encompasses the counties of Essex, Orleans and Caledonia, and is inhabited by no more than around 65,000 people.
The region is characterised by its rugged landscape but also by its residents, who are the focus of the series. Lavoué’s atmospheric and personal tribute to this unusual part of the world was shortlisted for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2016. Prior to this, the series was featured in LFI Magazine 3/2015.
