    David Pinzòn, freeze frame... Or rather the image in sequence, because what interests David Pinzón, it is the birth of life through the image, the decomposition of the movement, the technical richness of the picture. If he chose the profession of the image, chemistry attempted it in the same way as those people that he admires such Edward Muybridge or Jules Marey, who put the image in the service of science and made them rise an art in its own right. Panoramic photo also excites him and his side kinematics, it develops itself new techniques of shots so that our vision grow.

    Officially founded in 1885, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence municipal library was not given specific premises and employees until a century later, at the end of the 1980s. In 1990, it was installed in the former Maison Blain - the home of a dynasty of seed-merchants, an extremely important trade in the commune's economic history - and to mark the occasion it was given the name of the Provençal writer Joseph Roumanille (1818-1891). With approximately 40,000 documents, Joseph-Roumanille municipal library has two complementary functions. Promoting public reading

    The first known mention of the existence of Saint Peyre d'Entremonts Priory dates back to 1213. However, it was constructed before this date. The remains of the buildings are currently being restored; the 'Apier ou le Mur a des Oreilles' Association is organising volunteers to work on the site. The first job was to clear the site of the vegetation and scree that had invaded it and made it inaccessible, then the walls will gradually be rebuilt.

    This chapel is located on private property by the side of the Chemin de Saint-Véran. The quality and perfect stone-setting of this building, most of which is in ruins, make it one of the most characteristic in Romanesque Provence. It had a single nave, with a barrel vault resting on transverse arches and built around a semi-domed apse; on each side of the entrance to the apse were rubble stones decorated with foliage with plant and geometrical designs. There was a side chapel to the south.
