Being back from the US in 2013, I took a new job which requires a lot of traveling within Switzerland. Taking pictures while commuting allows me to see my country with new eyes. A decade ago, Switzerland decided to densify built up areas, especially along train tracks, to save on undeveloped and farming land. So what one can see from a train is among the fastest changing landscapes in the country. Pictures are taken exclusively with an iPhone.

Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All through the meadows the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by.
 
Here is a child who clambers and scrambles,
All by himself and gathering brambles;
Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;
And there is the green for stringing the daisies!
Here is a cart run away in the road
Lumping along with man and load;
And here is a mill and there is a river:
Each a glimpse and gone for ever!
Robert Louis Stevenson
From A Child’s Garden of Verses (1885)

Europeans travel to the US mostly in search for natural wonders such as the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone and urban eccentricities, from Manhattan to Vegas to San Francisco. Yet the U.S. influence in the world can be understood nowhere better than in this relatively small area surrounding Washington DC. From the Jersey Shore to the Shenandoah Valley, from the Norfolk Navy Yard to small rural communities of Pennsylvania, this trip offered me a glimpse of giant infrastructures, traditional farms, and huge military facilities, which, for better or for worse, have forged the American way of life.

Following a DNA.info reporting on aquaponics, I paid a visit to The Point, where Christopher Toole grows fishes,  plants and mushrooms in order to build  “a sustainable, vertically integrated food industry”. This program is part to a number of activities for kids, organized by this community center located in Hunts Point, a neighborhood of the Bronx. Some of these pictures where published along with my story in a swiss consumer news magazine in its May 2012 issue.

I started this series while awaiting the results of the 2012 presidential race in Times Square, New York. At that time, I was attending a continuing education class on documentary approach with Curran Hatleberg at the ICP. This class deeply changed my perspective on photography. Hopefully, it also gave me new ways of portraying the country I recently moved to.
