"Boule" is French national sport and "Nocturne" is a nocturnal or evening Boule tournament.
The images shown were taken in Bédoin, a small village at the foot of Mont Ventoux in Southern France.
The Nocturne begins with the onset of dusk. Gradually the boule pitch fills and the first rounds are played out. On the one hand there is a peculiar rest, on the other hand it is sometimes almost dogged and fought for every point with every possible means.
All images were exposed on Kodak TRI-X film with ISO 1600 with a 35mm lens.
