Davies decided to follow the course of the River Tiretaine nord from it's source near the Puy de Dôme through Clermont-Ferrand. This series of photographs includes the Michelin headquarters, factory sites and where the river is often hidden underground or behind factory walls. This was an industrial river which Michelin enveloped from Clermont and then into Ferrand - effectively joining the two cities. This work is also a metaphor for the personal, social and political secrets we hide.

Residency project with the Department of Culture for the City of Clermont-Ferrand.
