Every year in August Uzès erects the barricades so that the teams, 'manades' can herd young bulls round the boulevard. Local youths try to distract the bulls and get them away from their minders. Something like this happens in many towns and villages in the Languedoc-Roussillon. (We are less than three hours from the Spanish border.) For me the spectators are as remarkable as the event itself and in some of the diptychs I have opposed the energetic movement of bulls and horses with the static spectators. As always the light and shade steal the show.
