Beauté fatale – Recueil de photographies des sables bitumineux de l’Alberta

Recueil de photographies grand format contenant plus de 200 vues aériennes ainsi que des essais par des personnalités influentes.

"Louis Helbig has been photographing Canada's oil sands mining for several years, with fascinating results" - The New York Times

----

« Louis Helbig documente avec sa caméra l’exploitation des sables bitumineux canadiens depuis plusieurs années, avec des résultats fascinants » – The New York Times

BEAUTIFUL DESTRUCTION is a large-format, high-quality art photography book that uses over 200 stunning aerial photographs of the largest industrial project on earth: the Alberta oil/tar sands.

The book uses art to create space to re-imagine, re-think and engage in respectful dialogue about the Alberta tar/oil sands.

The polarities that dominate the oil sands / tar sands are uniquely addressed with written contributions from prominent individuals and organizations, who share their insights and views from across the spectrum of the issue.

With image titles in Denesuline and Cree, Beautiful Destruction is one of the most ambitious, innovative, and provocative photography projects to be published in years.

-----------------------

Le recueil Beautiful Destruction contient plus de 200 superbes photos artistiques grand format du plus imposant projet industriel au monde, celui des sables bitumineux de l’Alberta.

L’ouvrage fait appel à l’art pour créer un espace où ré-imaginer, repenser et tenir un dialogue respectueux sur les sables bitumineux albertains

Les points de vue divergents sur les sables bitumineux sont abordés de manière toute particulière par le biais d’apports écrits d’individus et organismes en vue. Ceux-ci présentent des réflexions et opinions venant de tous les horizons.

Avec des légendes d’images dans  les langues dénée et crie,  Beauté fatale figure parmi les projets photographiques les plus ambitieux et innovateurs des dernières années, et il ne laissera pas indifférent.

THE JOURNEY  ---- L’AVENTURE

It started in 2008, when my partner Kristin and I decided to go to Northern Alberta to fly over the tar/oil sands, to see for ourselves what had up until then been hidden from plain sight. From that, we created the Beautiful Destruction exhibition, which was well received by the public and the media. I have since gone up again in 2012 in the winter, and in 2013. The Beautiful Destruction book has images that will be released for the first time.

-----------------------

Tout a débuté en 2008, quand ma conjointe et moi avons décidé d’aller survoler la zone des sables bitumineux de l’Alberta pour voir de nos propres yeux ce qui avait jusque là été caché à la face du monde. En a découlé l’exposition Beautiful Destruction, qui a été bien accueillie par le public et les médias. Je suis retourné là-bas à l’hiver 2012, et une autre fois en 2013. Le livre contient des images jusqu’ici non publiées.

-----------------------

"For Louis Helbig, being 1,000 feet above his subjects is the perfect vantage point." - National Post

« Pour Louis Helbig, le meilleur point d’observation est à 300 mètres au dessus de ses sujets. » – National Post

ESSAY CONTRIBUTORS  ----   AUTEURS DES ESSAIS

Sharing their insights are / Ont apporté leurs points de vue sous la forme d’essais: 

Bill McKibben, Ezra Levant, Chief Allan Adam, Rick George, Charles Wilkinson, Duff Conacher, Eric Reguly, Architect Theatre, Jennifer Grant, Gil McGowan, Greg Stringham, Dr. John O’Connor, Megan Leslie, Francis Scarpaleggia and/et Elizabeth May.

TRANSLATIONS ---- TRADUCTION

The image titles in the book will be translated in Denesuline and Cree, which are two of the indigenous languages local to the area in Northern Alberta. Additionally, Chief Allan Adam's essay will be fully translated into Denesuline, the language traditionally spoken by the Denesuline people he represents. We feel it is important to include these languages, as the oil/tar sands development is happening within their traditional territory.

-----------------------

Les titres des images seront traduits en déné et en cri. Ce sont les deux langues autochtones locales dans le Nord de l’Alberta. L’essai du chef Allan Adam sera traduit en déné, la langue des gens qu’il représente. Il est important pour nous d’inclure ces langues parce que l’exploitation des sables bitumineux se fait sur le territoire traditionnel de ces Premières nations. 

----

E-BOOK ---- LIVRE NUMÉRIQUE

The Beautiful Destruction e-book will include a Google Earth link with each photograph to take viewers to the exact location of each picture. With this readers will be able to virtually fly to the very places I actually flew over and photographed. 

There will also be fact pieces by the Pembina Institute and CAPP about the details of the mining operations (including SAGD - Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage, open pit mines, water usage, tailings ponds, reclamation, and more).

-----------------------

La version électronique de l’ouvrage inclura un lien Google Earth pour chaque image, ce qui permettra au lecteur de survoler littéralement le lieu de prise de chaque image.

Cette version contiendra aussi de l’information détaillée fournie par le Pembina Institute et l’Association canadienne des producteurs pétroliers concernant les opérations minières (p. ex. le drainage par gravité au moyen de vapeur, les mines à ciel ouvert, les bassins de résidus et la remise en état)

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenges, the aerial photo shoots, organizing and selecting the photographs, soliciting essay contributions, and creating the book have been addressed. All that is left is to finalize the Denesuline and Cree translation, create the e-book and print the book. Our goal is to have the book ready for distribution in November, which means you would receive your copy in December, in time for Christmas. If there are any delays in production, we will inform you as soon as possible.

Risques et défis

Au sujet de la responsabilité à KickStarter

Les défis les plus importants (prises de vues aériennes, organisation et sélection des photos, sollicitation des essayistes et conception de l’ouvrage) ont été relevés. Il ne reste qu’à terminer la traduction en déné et en cri, créer la version numérique et imprimer le livre. Nous voulons faire en sorte que l’ouvrage soit prêt à distribuer en novembre pour que vous le receviez en décembre, à temps pour les Fêtes. S’il se produit des retards de production, nous vous en informerons dès que possible.

    Pledge CA$ 8,000 or more About $7,314

    Receive the left seat cushion (that's the pilot seat) of my 1946 Luscombe 8A aircraft used for the first trip to Northern Alberta. If you contact me directly to organize a $6,000 payment for the right seat cushion (used by Kristin) I'll provide the rest of the airplane for free! You will also receive a book.

    In all seriousness the aircraft is for sale; I would encourage any interested buyer to contact me directly for more information before pledging. I will deliver for expenses anywhere within Canada (and possibly the US). More info about the aircraft (engine and airframe times, photos, etc) can be found at http://louishelbig.photodeck.com/-/galleries/luscombe-8a-for-sale. I will also deliver for expenses anywhere within Canada (and possibly the US).
