Editions La Martinière 2020

Beautiful book of photographs collected over the years all around the planet on a very nice subject, the scarecrow. The scarecrows are one of the passions of Hans Silvester. Coming from Germany, he met some of them 50 years ago when he arrived in Gordes in the Luberon. Since then he has stalked and photographed them everywhere, from Japan to Ethiopia, via Myanmar. For him, this is the essence of the importance of folk art. We had an exhibition a few years ago at Retour De Voyage : The genesis of “Dream Runners” began with a collection of small Dan masks that carry the power, evident to all initiates, to protect their possessor and to intercede on his behalf with telluric forces. They enable the one for whom they have been sculpted to communicate permanently and directly with these forces, to transmit to them his fears, his needs and his dreams. In order to complete this collection of masks, Hans Silvester presented for the first time some of his scarecrows, also linked with telluric forces.  It took him a long time to gather all the numerous photos he had shoot all around the world and to prepare this book, which is really very pleasant to look at. Most of he scarecrows are funny, always beautiful and full of creativity. A wonderful gift for anyone.
