Charles Freger has photographed a series of portraits of Breton women of every generation from every region, wearing costumes and headdresses of endless variety: from high starched towers to elaborately pinned, tucked and embroidered confections of handmade lace, as delicate as they are distinctive. Marie Darrieussecq, winner of the Prix Medicis and twice nominated for the Prix Goncourt, has contributed a foreword. Some fifty headdresses are introduced and described in a separate reference section, accompanied by specially commissioned illustrations. Charles Freger's exceptional photographs demonstrate a wealth of pride, ingenuity and personal expression that make this book uniquely compelling.
