En juillet 2017 et encore en juillet 2019 l'association Attelages et Cavaliers du Pays de Jumilhac a organisé des journées "traction animale".  Les propriétaires des animaux de trait de la région sont venus nombreux avec leurs animaux bien sûr, mais aussi de nombreuses machines agricoles de l'époque de la "traction animale".  

Ces jours-là j'ai pu photographier des scènes qui ont disparu de notre campagne depuis longtemps et j'ai décidé de les rendre en sépia pour ressembler aux photos de la fin du XIXe début XXe.  

Traction animale

In july 2017 and again in july 2019 the association Attelages et Cavaliers du Pays de Jumilhac organised working horse days.  Many owners of working horses from around the area attended with their animals of course, but also with numerous machines from the era of horse-powered farming. 

During these events I was able to photograph scenes which have long since disappeared from the countryside.  I decided to present them in sepia to reflect the style of photos from the end of the 19th C and the start of the 20th C.

I started taking photographs at the age of 10, learning by my mistakes, and now, in retirement, I can at last dedicate the time I would like to my passion for photography.

In the countryside I'm inspired by the beauty of nature all around me here in Limousin and Dordogne : landscapes, yes, but principally the details, a leaf, an insect or even a still life composition.  In town architecture provides interesting subjects, but the most fascinating subjects are my fellow citizens, especially when captured in candid street photos, often in black and white.
