The Almost Vanished World of Bernard Peyrol

French photographer/writer/director Bernard Peyrol makes me think of my photographer friend Jesus Arruabarrena, documenting rural living that is close to extinction.
 Peyrol also produced a film, introducing Pierre from Boutières. At the foot of Mt Mzenc, located on the border of the Haute Loire and the Ardeche, Pierre chooses to live on his modest farm and refuses all forms of "modernism".

The scenes of Pierre come from the DVD "Le Monde Rural" (The Rural World). For more information and ordering, visit: www.peyrolbernard.com.
