One of Hans Silvester's cult photos in the pétanque series showing a man throwing a pétanque ball. Behind him is a statue of a woman holding a spherical object in her right hand. The player seems to be under the sovereignty of this woman, mirroring her gesture.
From his first trip to Provence, Hans Silvester was fascinated by the petanque players, an activity that was widely practiced in the region. When he moved to Provence a few years later, he was introduced to the game of boules with local figures. He came across famous players whom he immortalised in his photographs, such as the gamekeeper of Murs, "Chinche", who is among the best known and most prized photos. He gradually made a place for himself by developing the photos and taking them to the players the next day, and was thus able to immortalise some anthology photographs...
Retour De Voyage has selected this photograph by Hans Silvester, which perfectly captures this man and the statue behind him, leaving the viewer's imagination free to explore.
