Aircraft: The New Anatomy

From 2017 to 2020, Maxime Guyon explored the most significant aviation factories and met numerous protagonists of this impressive sector of the economy. His keen eye for detail and aesthetics is apparent in his series of photographs questioning the fascinating evolution of the aeronautical industry and the rat race for technological performance. The book entitled Aircraft: The New Anatomy published by Lars Müller in Zurich, presents a collation of his work. Complemented with an essay by Nicolas Nova, a Swiss-French researcher and anthropologist, these images serve as an evolving metaphor and launchpad for a broader reflection on human-made artefacts and the ambivalent link between nature and technology.
