Blue Shutters


Print by featured photographer Nicolas Pillet.

"I come from Les Sables-d'Olonne which is a seaside town in western France, on the Atlantic Ocean. In the 17th century It became the largest cod-fishing port in France, Until now many houses in town has blue shutters, because at the time, fishermen used to paint their house shutters with the remnants of painting that were used to paint their fishing boat - This traditional house window in the fishing village of Vinh Hy has unconsciously attracted me - I now know why! it may be true that everything is related to its origins and its childhood!"
