Seven thousand years ago, human beings cut and raised stones in Western Europe. These stones, venerated as sacred objects, are particularly numerous in Ile-de-France and constitute the first trace of our civilisation’s architecture. By photographing them, Alain Cornu sought to highlight these messengers from the past, recovering their sacred nature and emphasising how their being unites humanity, nature and time.
