Phot’Aubrac 2022 : Jacques Villière : Les Héros de la Tintaine


Braced on the tintaine, more than two meters above the water, the fighters strive to hold their position while destabilizing their opponents.
This tradition of jousting has been going on for several centuries. Jacques presents a remarkable work over several years to present to the public a series of situations almost impossible to reconstruct.
Everything is consistent in this collection, which is still the principle of a collection. What many new creators photographers hardly master boldly mixing every thing up.
We really are both in action and frozen in space time. What antagonism! Photographic secrecy is based on shooting angles as ideal as they are improbable, a use of light which ensures a beautiful chromatic balance and a perfect trigger at the right moment. All this is only possible with hard work and the stubbornness of a true photographer, it cannot not be the work of a “shooter” owner of an “intelligent”smartphone.
Thank you Monsieur Jacques for all your aches, all the time spent cleaning optics, all your obvious risks taking. And so even in a photoclub, Passion can work wonders.

Thierry Maindrault
