Bergerie De Faucon

La Bergerie de Faucon is a special home where young people are reintegrated through contact with animals. I document this moment of rupture for young people, who are in transition between the worlds of childhood and adulthood.

Located in Rougon, in the heart of the Gorges du Verdon Regional Park, the Bergerie de Faucon is a special home where young people are reintegrated through contact with animals. Its vocation is to house and reintegrate 7 young people, who have found themselves in danger, out of school or involved in delinquency. It’s a privileged place for those who have often been shuffled from foster home to foster home without ever really being able to find the necessary attention and consistency that comes with a stable place to live. The photographs were taken at the Bergerie de Faucon in France and in Morocco during a stay focused on walking.

There are all aged between 12 and 18, and are at that pivotal moment in life when the need to build and define a certain identity becomes stronger and more assertive than during childhood. Every day, they search for and question rules and limits, sometimes challenging the authority of their educators, but they also know how to listen and be sensitive. I document this moment of rupture for young people, who, marked by their past and their placement in a home, are in transition to adulthood.
