France-based American photographer Jane Evelyn Atwood has focused her work upon portraying the excluded and the outcasts of society. Her haunting images capture the eclipsed conditions of the sick, the blind, the handicapped, but also those of prostitutes and prisoners, revealing lives and worlds that are largely kept hidden from view. An exhibition celebrating her photography, spanning more than 30 years, is now on in Paris. Here, Clément Sénéchal presents Atwood's work and interviews the photographer about her approach and experiences.

German artist Nils-Udo is a key figure in a movement born in the United States known as land art, a school of painting, images and montage that celebrates nature in all its many forms. Now into his 75th year, this passionate environmentalist is celebrated in a Paris exhibition lasting until October. Clément Sénéchal presents some of the art on show (photo) and talks to Nils-Udo about his work, his methods and his deep anguish at what he calls the "ignorant" irreversible destruction of nature.
