Not many people know Surgères. This town in southwestern France is famous for two things: Hélène de Fonsèque (Poet Pierre de Ronsard’s muse) and the Charentes Poitou butter. In this shot, I tried to capture the beauty of the early evening. There was something mesmerizing about the way light and shadows seemed to play together. The results is an (almost) eerie feeling.
