Raymond Depardon: La Terre des Paysans
'Farmer’s Earth' presents Raymond Depardon's study of rural farmers in the French countryside
Raymond Depardon’s new exhibition, ‘Farmer’s Earth’, opens at the Centre Culturel Juliobona, Lillebonne (France), on September 14 and runs unti l December 10, 2016.
Raymond Depardon’s obsession with his parents’ farm and his feeling of having abandoned it is implicit in his early work as a photographer and film-maker travelling around the world.
With the publication of La Ferme du Garet in 1995, he at long last explores his roots and origins, and feels free enough to envisage a film project about rural life in the French highlands over a ten years period. This subsequently gave birth to the Profils Paysans trilogy with L’Approche in 2000, Le Quotidien in 2005 and La Vie Moderne in 2008.
