Starry Cévennes - Photographs by Carole Reboul

Photo exhibition of the starry nights of the Cévennes without light pollution.
In the summer of 2018, the Cévennes obtained the International Star Sky Reserve label (the most important RICE in Europe).
The importance of preserving the quality of our nights!

Having known the Cévennes well for over 15 years, I have always been attracted by their harshness and beauty. It is therefore quite natural that for the past three years I have started to browse them at night. I enjoy going for a walk at times when you feel fragile, small, when you are not in control of everything. The less we see, the more attentive we are to what surrounds us, the more sensitive to noise, to the slightest light. The omnipresent sky, the stars, remind us of our infinitely small dimension on the scale of the Universe. Reflection is obvious, on the rhythm of our lives, on our priorities… Being alone at night in the middle of nature is an extraordinary experience, which allows us to keep in touch with the Earth. Alone in the dark, we find ourselves dazzled by all this beauty that we can guess. In the summer of 2018, the Cévennes have obtained the International Star Sky Reserve label (the largest RICE in Europe). The aim of this exhibition is therefore also to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the quality of our nights, light pollution being one of the scourges of our century, for men but also for flora and fauna.
