Exposition photo portraits paysans à Madagascar

From september 4th to october 31st 2018

Regional Council in Bordeaux – Poitiers – Limoges

“Portraits paysans : Vivre de sa terre à Madagascar” by Pierre-William Henry

Agrisud International and its swiss partner Centre Ecologique Albert Schweitzer asked photograph Pierre-William Henry to shoot portraits of people living in the Itasy Region (Madagascar) in order to illustrate their actions in the field alongside with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region.

These farmers or artisans, as well as their families, are all involved in the project Mahavotra. It led them to agro-ecology and forestry to improve their living conditions, cope with climate change and, at the same time, reduce the carbon footprint of their activities.

“For over half a century, Pierre-William Henry has been caring for everyone he meets during his travels. [...] Through this universal language that is the photo, looks are exchanged and take root in the other for a brief moment or longer.” Nadja Hofmann
