33,280 color slides, 23,076 black and white negatives: it is with this concise list that one of the hundreds of pages of the diary kept by Madeleine de Sinéty could have started. The quality of her relationship with the photographed beings, the theater of their gestures, the intimacy, the richness and the diversity of the encounters made in Poilley, a small village 60 kilometers north of Rennes, overflow on all sides with the enormous accumulation of images. Born in 1934, the photographer lived in Poilley from 1972 to 1982. She subsequently made numerous trips there from the United States, where she had established her residence. Passed away in 2011, she will not have had time to order this archive herself. It is therefore without her, and with her son Peter, that the fund of color images was seized and turned into a book highlighting her lifelong work, which is neither the one of a photographer responding to a commission, or that of an anthropologist but one of an artist sharing the life of a tight-knit community, and of a rapidly changing rural microcosm on the verge of modernity.
