Les Rencontres de la Photographie 2015

Thierry Bouët, High-wing airplane, Private Affairs series. € 32,000, Sartrouville Price: make an offer. Phone calls only. Pierre, a precision mechanics technician with a vocational certificate as a lathe operator, spent 12 years building his own airplane, which he flew a total of 60 hours. Starting out with a wad of paper and no screws, this model was designed for scrubland. It is the only one of its kind to fly. Thanks to its lower hold, it can be used for parachute jumps. Pierre is selling it because of new EU regulations. His basic license, which allowed him to fly within a 30-kilometre radius, is no longer recognised. He now gives himself four years to build an ultra-light aircraft. Courtesy of the artist. © Rencontres Arles.
