Pig Farm Photographer
Series of photographs to illustrate the rearing of pigs in the open air, in Beauce, in the Paris region. There are very large plots of land used for field crops in this heavily agricultural region and a grain farmer had the idea of setting up an outdoor pig farm to diversify his activity. These are photos of the beginning of this activity, the first animals raised on this farm.

An outdoor pig farm, a farm that has animal welfare at heart, the animals are free and are free to come and go in large spaces. Pigs are physically very different from intensively farmed animals, thinner and taller on the legs. This differs not only from the daily exercise that these beasts do, but also from the breed which is more rustic and very different from the battery pigs.
