Belgian photographer François Hers widely exhibited in Europe in the 1970s culminating with a one-man show at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in 1980. He's the editor of the French journal on the history of photography, Photographies, and has conducted interviews with photographers and written critical studies of the medium. This autobiographical book A Tale mixes vintage interior shots, reportage of Portuguese police, French society, and Patagonia with photographs on a more personal level, including excerpts from his diary notes and writings on photography. The photographs are individually strong and the book as a whole, memorable.
