The Wider Image: French farmer finds happiness in life before machines
French farmer Jean-Bernard Huon, 70, carries hay at his farm in Riec-sur-Belon, France. When farm machinery revolutionised French agriculture in the years after World War Two, a young Jean-Bernard Huon turned his back on the new technology.
Half a century later, in a corner of southern Brittany on France's west coast, Huon still uses oxen to plough his fields, determined to preserve an ancestral, peasant way of life. REUTERS/Stephane Mahe
