The book

This book is not an account of voyages but carried out in total immersion with the nature, the population and its cultures during 7 years, hence the title of this book “seen from inside“.

Madagascar seen from inside is made of contrasts. Not only in the images but contrast between Land and Water, the theme of the second volume of this serie, contrast between populations, contrast between cultures, contrast between black and white and color.

A part of the profit of this book are donated to the NGO
Aïna, enfance et avenir

Your comments :

Hello, I have just received your two books: Madagascar seen from inside and I let you imagine the joy and the emotion of my wife when she saw them and leafed immediately.
She returned home only at the end of 2014 for the first time in 44 years and we return in 2018. These books are splendid.
Thank you for your very neat work. Superb photos and simple texts but very well documented.
I advise all lovers of Madagascar to obtain these two books. Cordially.

I was offered the two volumes of the book and I am really thrilled! On the physical aspect, very high quality printing and finishing.
As for the content, I found a beautiful harmony in the layout. The texts are just what it takes to know each region. The magnificent photos reminded me of the beautiful memories of my native land. Recall the places that are familiar to me but also discover some splendid places that I have not had the opportunity to visit. For the enthusiasts of my country, this is the book that must be in his library.
