Ridge is a photograph by contemporary artist Xavier Dumoulin taken from the series Incandescences. Concerned about environmental problems, through his photography, Xavier Dumoulin reveals a growing dichotomy between man and his environment.For this series he traveled from Normandy to the hinterland of Nice, in France, and from the Alps to the Pyrenees looking for isolated towns or villages in the wilderness. These inhabited lands are iridescent with light in a natural setting plunged into the dark night. The juxtaposition, here brought to the fore, between the light of man and the black of nature's darkest night remind us here in the west that we no longer have access to the spectacle of a starlit night sky: "an inestimable loss of a certain poetic rapport in the world" according to Xavier Dumoulin.
