Photographer's Note

The autumn sun rises on the salt pans. It enlightens this extraordinary work of the men who, without stop, work clay and create barriers which will allow the very slow circulation of sea water through tens of ponds. Fascinating, extremely meticulous work, made each winter and which will allow to collect an extraordinary quality salt during summer.

It is for me marvellous and so soft way of taming nature, the same techniques since thousands of years. Each time I go in this area, I am subjugated by this spectacle.


Le soleil dautomne se l鋦e sur les marais salants. Il 嶰laire cet extraordinaire travail des hommes qui , sans arr皻 fa蔞nnent largile et cr嶪nt des barri鋨es qui permettront la circulation tr鋊 lente de leau de mer travers des dizaines de bassins. Travail fascinant, extr瘱ement minutieux, effectu tous les hivers et qui permettra de r嶰olter un sel dune extraordinaire qualit durant l彋.
Cest pour moi une merveilleuse et si douce mani鋨e dapprivoiser la nature, les m瘱es techniques depuis des milliers dann嶪s. Chaque fois que je vais dans cette r嶲ion, je suis subjugu嶪 par ce spectacle.
