The images in Les Pecheurs depict an activity that proliferates in the canals and rivers of France from Le Havre to Marseilles. A variety of urban and rural settings form the backdrop for men, women, children, families and friends of every age to engage in their favourite hobby.
I have selected images which convey the “everyday-ness” of the activity, whether the landscape is urban or rural. We are compelled to take a closer look as the personalities, and in some cases relationships, of the people are revealed. Consider the fathers and sons, the three young friends, and the attitudes of those who choose to fish alone.
