I vaguely remember some of the landscapes of Cormac McCarthy’s first novels. The moist atmosphere of some plays written by Tennessee Williams in the region. But once I arrived in Chattanooga, I discovered a totally different country. A life separate from the one I had briefly glimpsed while covering stories for French newspapers in major U.S. cities. When I arrived in the city and in the factory I had a lot preconceived artistic project that I wanted to experiment. But after a few days there, I decided to try to erase myself from my work in an attempt to show through the images, in the most faithful way, the daily life and aspirations of this America. I found that it was important to recreate the warmth and generosity of these encounters.I was very touched by the way the staff and the executives of Alstom great me and helped me in my work. We have never talked about luxury sedans, trips to exotic destinations or stock market index but simply about basic values. As I hope I manage to suggest throughout the book, they cherish their work, sundays with the family, health and happiness of their children. Welcome to their home. (Pierre Bessard)
