Site 7 St Bonnet
Site 7 : La procession
The annual procession on All Saints’ Day used to cross the fairground located between the war memorial and the cemetery. It was surrounded by shops surmounted by apartments and storage barns into which wood fagots and hay where hoisted up by means of a pulley attached to a jib.
The artist photographed the procession at a distance leaving a large expanse of empty foreground with no clue as if she didn’t want to disturb the event or perhaps didn’t wish to participate in it. Later, she would get closer to her subjects to draw special attention to them.
