After 50 years of photographic adventures devoted entirely to the Orient only, Roland & Sabrina Michaud offer us the quintessence of their experiences. The exhibition itself is a travel over 220 photographs and 7 visions : • Afghanistan : 30 pictures including the famous bozkashi - horse game, the camel caravans on frozen rivers of the Pamir mountains or the intimate life of Afghan women. • India : 30 pictures, including major religous festivals and monuments and traditional life. • China : 30 pictures, including poetic images of the Huang Shan mountains and scenes of country daily life. • Mongolia : 15 pictures, including eagle hunting and life under the yurt. • Korea : 45 pictures, including buddhist temples, and people of the Blue Crane village. • Monsoon : 13 pictures, scenery and people under heavy rains. • Mirrors : 30 juxtapositions of Michaud’s photographs with local historic works of art, in order to highlight the extraordinary coexistence and continuity of past and present. (10x2 pictures for Islam / 11X2 pictures for India / 12x2 pictures for China) Inspired by the literary works of the Orient, from the Arabian Nights and Sufis tales, to the Indian epics and the Chinese poets, the mythic French couple, Roland & Sabrina Michaud, after crisscrossing Asia by car from Paris to Singapore, during four and an half years, 1964 - 1968, are back to France with 34 000 pictures and an intense desire to become professional photographers. The secret of their work is to take one’s time. They choose to devote their whole life to Asia only. Over 80 years old, Roland & Sabrina Michaud, are still going back to India and are faithful to their old Leica argentic camera. Roland & Sabrian Michaud are the author of 23 photographic book translated into several languages, among which their famous best seller : Caravans to Tartary (1977). Their present motto is : Old age is winter for the ignorant, but harvest for the wise.
