Synopsis:

A powerful and moving portrait of the hard lives of French family farmers living and working in the Forez region of France—a subject matter reminiscent of the work of the Farm Security Administration.
Born and brought up in the area, Christophe Agou was inspired and moved by the authenticity and charisma of the people he encountered. He presents an intimate and touching portrait of their labor-intensive lives.

Christophe Agou came to prominence with his compelling body of work made in the New York subway—published as Life Below in 2004.

Book Description Dewi Lewis Publishing. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, In the Face of Silence, Christophe Agou, John Berger, Born and brought up in the region until the age of 16, this is an area for which photographer Christophe Agou still retains a deep affection. He travelled to the lesser-known parts of the region, where he felt inspired by the silence and moved by the authenticity and charisma of the people he encountered. Over time, and through the gradual process of building trust and friendship, the farmers and their families accepted him and allowed him to both photograph and film their daily existence. The challenge was to go beyond just documenting their labour-intensive lives and present a deeper, more intimate portrait. For Agou, the resultant work is a meditation on life and death as well as the silence and solitude that are ever-present in our lives. Bookseller Inventory # B9781907893049
