TRANSHUMANCE, a 2000 year old tradition, in the Cévennes, South of France. These photos follows a small shepherd community, on their yearly trek from the lowlands, up through the mountains. Each summer during the migration of nearly 2000 bell-clad and decorated sheep, this group of shepherds keep a very close eye on their sheep.

This form of migration is much better for the sheep. However, can such an old colourful tradition continue?
