From 4 April to 31 May 2015, the urban community of Creil (Creil, Montataire, Nogent-sur-Oise, and Villers-Saint-Paul), the commune of Saint-Maximin and the Diaphane photographic group organised the event “Usimages”, showing the industrial landscape, the universe of companies and the working world.

16 indoor and outdoor exhibitions were organised on 5 themes: the representation of industry in the history of photography, traces of the industrial heritage in the landscape, industrial architecture, the working world, and companies’ commissions to artistes. Contemporary photos allowed spectators to discover a multiplicity of approaches about the industrial heritage and the memory of work and companies: industrialisation, deindustrialisation, transformations, etc.

Photos from archives were also presented, notably the collections of the Association pour la Mémoire Ouvrière et Industrielle du bassin creillois (AMOI). Furthermore, Usimages offered practical photographic workshops in secondary schools and associations. Photos taken during these workshops were displayed.
