The Beach

At the end of a Camargue, the twisting road in the marshes leads to a beach which each summer gives rise to a transitory village. This is the beach of Piémanson. Piémanson is the symbol of the collective and popular appropriation of a space in the name of freedom, of a user-friendliness and of a right to live from nature for a while. Beyond that, this is also the popular expression of a refusal to submit to conventions dictated by "the authority".
