Pictures worth a thousand words

The story of the "zone a defendre" (popularly known as a ZAD) at the proposed dam at the forest of Sivens in the Tarn, captured all the headlines a couple of years ago. Groups of ecologists occupied the site and efforts to dislodge them led to violent clashes with the police - including the death of one protester.
A Toulouse based photo journalist spent six months at the site and is now holding an exhibition of some of his work at the Photon Gallery in the city. Included are a number of diaporamas which can viewed via your smartphone or gallery viewer.
Frederic Scheiber's exhibition runs until 24th May
