Sébastien Michaud – The project Forest Gardeners

9 October 2020 to 14 March 2021

The project Forest Gardeners is a long-term photo essay started in 2016 and completed in 2020. Focusing both on the tree’s life cycle and on forestry workers, the initial approach intends to pay tribute to the workers but is also the willingness to discover the world of forestry and to take a look at the use of men and equipment in forest management.
