2017/07 Mimos, festival of mime in Périgueux

"One of the most important festivals of the art of Mime in Europe, Mimos invites you, in mid summer, to the steets, public gardens and theatres of Périgueux."

Founded in 1983, the festival Mimos combines all the diverse arts based on movement : mime, performance, dance, circus, marionnettes...

I went to Périgueux with several friends from the club photo in Jumilhac and the club OPPV from Thiviers on the 26th July, mainly to see the street performances of the Fringe. The weather was a bit grey, but at least it did not rain and we had a very enjoyable day watching five excellent performances.

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.
