About the Book
Ces images en font un labyrinthe qui, comme le cerveau, est le théâtre d'un constant processus de fluctuations. Si ce mouvement perpétuel peut effrayer, il est l'élément nécessaire
à l'évolution humaine. Comme dans le mythe de Dédale, nous faisons face au piège, tandis que le génie humain trouve une voie vers la renaissance, puis la survie.
‘Dédale’ - in Latin Daedalus - is a series of photographs of the historic Grésigne forest and its surroundings in the Tarn area of France.
Glover’s photographs present the Grésigne Forest as a kind of labyrinth, which, like the mind, is in a constantly evolving process of change. Change can be frightening, but it is ultimately an essential part
of our personal evolution and the human condition. As with the myth of Dédale, our entrapment can be confronted
and human ingenuity provides the means of renewal, even escape.
