3300 kms on the roads of France - The Book

About the project

My name is Yoann Olawinski, I am 24 years old and I am a photographer. Last summer, I walked 3300 kilometers around France, with my tent and my camera, in order to create a photo essay about France, without biases or prejudice, but with a unique guide: the road. 

I slept in fields, along rivers, in the mountains, sometimes in gardens or bedrooms where kind people would welcome me. Adventures. Just a (full) bag and a pair of sneakers to walk all around France. 

My goal was to meet France, its territory, its people and their problems, my goal was to travel here, in the country where I grew up. So I decided to walk, to take my time, I walked in order to change my perception of others, and to find excitement in those little details we don't acknowledge.

I learned a lot during this trip. On myself, but on others too. On what matters for me, on what matters for others, on their ways of living. Because you don't have the same problems in Saint-Clément and Saint-Lunaire, it is just different. And I wanted to meet this diversity of situations, with humility. 



Today, I have decided to make a book out of this project, because images live differently on paper, because a book can be offered or you can borrow them from a friend.

After the trip, I have worked on it and here is the result: a 24x28 cms book, with 120 pages and 105 photos.
