Mark Geffriaud, Les Renseignements Généraux, 2007

‘Les Renseignements Généraux’ (named after the French secret service, literally meaning “global information”) is a book never intended to be either finished or published. Its existence is only revealed through a series of photos which give a glimpse of its content : combinations of illustrations meant to back up an absent text. The more or less loose associations provide the raw material as well as the illustrations of the book I would dream of reading one day if ever someone was willing to write it for me.
