Photographer's Note

Chenac-Saint-Seurin-d'Uzet is a commune of south-west of France, located on the Gironde Estuary in the department of Charente-Maritime ( Region Nouvelle Aquitaine ). Its inhabitants are called Saint-Chenacais or Surinamese and Chenacaises or St. Surinaises.

It is the result of the merger on 25 February 1965 of two villages separated by about three kilometres: Chenac-sur-Gironde, a village of farmers and wine makers perched on a hill overlooking the Gironde estuary, and Saint-Seurin-d'Uzet, a small fishing port that was once an important production centre for caviar.

The above was extracted and freely translated from an article on French Wikipedia describing the commune.

This series of pictures was taken in the village of Saint-Seurin-d'Uzet.
