Three recent exhibitions oﬀer a rare look at the act of collecting. In Archipel, Serge Clément presents a collection of all the photobooks that he has made – books that can be seen as sequencings of collections of his own images. Bertrand Carrière immerses himself in the collection of the Cinémathèque québécoise, focusing on film noir, extracting paradigmatic images and exploring the plays on temporality inherent to the crossfade. Finally, the collection of Jack Lazare represents a rare example of a collection patiently assembled over the years to reflect a melancholic vision of a world in diﬃculty.
