Terroir is a French word I have heard described as difficult to give meaning in the English language. Variously compared to a deep sense of connection to the land, the particular qualities of a place, the people and earth of the countryside, or simply as soil, the word for me evokes the richness and intangible qualities of beauty, ancientness, and spirit of place. These are the qualities I attempt to capture in photographic images.
