Last week I spoke about La Gacilly and the wonderful annual photographic exhibition.
I thought this week I would post some of the photographs that we enjoyed seeing this year.
The first set is about the nomads who live in Northern Siberia.
This is a terrain with virtually no resources except one from deep in the frozen wastes.
That resource is the remains of mammoths buried deep beneath the snow and ice.
Some years ago the perfectly formed body of a baby mammoth was discovered.
I just love the tenderness of the young child towards this baby who died some 37,000 years ago.
The photographer is Francis Latreille.
The life of these people is described perfectly in this French sentence.
Dans ce monde sans couleur , quelques centaines de nomads "vivent de l'economie du rien", dans un uninvers sans superflu.
|The photographs of the nomads are displayed on huge panels with the wonderful meadow flowers below them.|
