TEMPS DE POSE -  Mountain's views

A photo documentary participatory project.
Choices of life: 25 inhabitants in the valley of Massat share their views on their daily lives 


Images and texts by the participants
Project and portraits by Sandrine Rousseau

Fascinated by the diversity of the population of the valley of Massat in the Ariège Pyrenees, and the uniqueness of each of the inhabitants who contribute to its richness and eccentricity, photographer Sandrine Rousseau conceived a project with the aim of demystifying appearances. She visited 25 inhabitants and families in order to create — with them — a portrait of their lives.

In this series of testimonies, she also explored ways people use time and space differently in order to ‘exist’ in our present economic environment.
