I’m a nomad who goes nowhere” — Portrait of a young shepherd in France

AFPs Jeff Pachoud, on The Guardian, portraying the daily solitary life of a 24 years-old shepherd in the Alps through a beautiful photo album. The captions tell more than there is on the pictures:

From the start of his first season, Meme [the shepherd’s name] found himself face to face with a wolf and had to fight it off. He was there on the end of my staff every evening for a week,’ the shepherd recalls. When my first sheep was killed I immediately felt that I had failed, that I had not carried out my duty.’

Absolutely wonderful read, and gorgeous photographs by Pachoud. I wish there was more immersive storytelling like this.
