A non-profit photo-book featuring stories from all over the world showing the infinite variety of ways in which people shape their work and run their lives. Selection of the stories after a worldwide open-call for submissions. My proposition was a short story about La Ferme des Bouillons.
In December 2012, Tatiana Gameroff and a dozen other young activists occupied La Ferme des Bouillons, an abandoned 18th-century farmhouse at Mont-Saint-Aignan, near Rouen in northern France’s Normandy region. Among France’s largest retail companies had planned to build a supermarket at this location. Mobilising support through social networks, the activists gathered enough resources to mount a legal campaign that resulted in the local council re-classifying the farm as a “Protected Natural Zone” in January 2014. /.../
