I wanted to share these few images that I shot on my last trip in August. This is Auvergne, where I grew up. Mountains, cows, cheese and charcuterie all the way 🙂 It’s also a place of contemplation where you can wander for kilometers without seeing anybody. There are so many trails and little wonders to explore – it’s incredible. For instance that last image is a retired shepherd’s refugee, we call it “buron”. Now it’s open for hikers. There is no key, no lock. Just enter, spend the night, clean up after yourself. It’s simply a wonderful experience to wake up hearing cows’ bells passing by.
Meet the fam’ – in these portraits are my dad Jacques, brother Xavier, and his son Louis. And Dori, the Fox Terrier.
