For this crossing of the Massif Central, at the invitation of the Clermont 2028 association, I chose to take Route 89 which crosses three departments, Loire, Puy-de-Dôme and Corrèze, between September 2021 and February 2022, with a small silver box with random updates and a use of sensitive films generating a more pictorial invoice thanks to the grain by forgetting the technical codes if necessary to go fast, lighten up for the few steps to move away a bit of the road.
Taking the 89 is choosing another time, choosing the slowdown. It is to choose the landscape and the meeting against speed. Taking 89 also is to say that stops are possible is to believe in the power of serendipity, at random stops and turns, to crisscross landscapes and create this availability for the meeting with people who work , transform, live, live these territories. It is to be surprised by their stories, to surprise with them these impromptu encounters and portraits, caught on the spot, which arise from it when they were not initially planned in a first intention, as obvious.
