Camargue, Venice: the lagoon people.

Like Venice, the Camargue is a land at sea level. Both are born in a semi-natural half-artificial environment and their respective inhabitants live, to the rhythm of their lagoon . It’s their particularly colourful everyday life that Fanny Agostini shares with us.

In the Camargue, humans coexist with nature on 150,000 hectares of ponds and lagoons and 100 kilometers of coastline. Initiatives to preserve it at best are many and varied.
