‘‘ I was very impatient to see the arrival at the Vieux Port. I was of course really looking forward to seeing the animals, and everyone was impatiently awaiting, just like
me. In the end, the fabulous crowd drew my attention as much as anything else! For one magical moment, the entire landscape became unreal …. once again ! ”

The Artist

Patrick Messina was born in Paris in 1967. After leaving the Ecole Louis Lumière, he took his first photographs for Libération, Télérama and Les Inrockuptibles. His recent personal work, in the field of the urban landscape, as in New York, Hong Kong, Paris, or in rural areas like Iceland, the hills of Languedoc, of the Gulf of Morbihan shows Patrick Messina as an artist who excels in witnessing to an intimate experience of spaces and giving a reading of them which helps us get to know them afresh.



One of the highlights of "Marseille-Provence 2013", "TransHumance" was a vast poetical and geographical collective movement, bringing together horses, flocks, walkers and riders from the four corners of the region in Marseille. The "transhumance" (moving of flocks to their summer or winter pastures) is an intrinsic part of the region's heritage and continues to be celebrated in the Bouches-du-Rhône's villages in May and November.
