Photographer's Note

Detail: Church of Etimasis - Église de l'Etimasis

English:

Situated some 4,5 km from Sylvanès, this wooden Russian orthodox church has been built in october 1994 after requested by Priest André Gouze.
It was first built in the woods of Khirov (about 700 km east of Moscow) in the winter of 1993/94, then taken apart and carried by trains, trucks and tractors till its final destination and finally built up again using an old russian technic which does not need any nail nor pen.

The French Society of Train Transport paid half the costs of transport between Russia and Millau, the nearest town.

Située à 4,5 km de Sylvanès, cette église de bois au style russe orthodoxe à été construite en octobre 1994 à la demande du Père André Gouze.
Le bâtiment fut construit dans la forêt de Khirov (à 700 km à l'est de Moscou) durant l'hiver 1993-1994|94 puis démonté et acheminé par train, camions et tracteurs jusqu'à son lieu définitif pour être finalement remonté selon une ancienne technique russe qui ne nécessite ni clou ni cheville.

La SNCF a pris en charge la moitié du coût du transport entre la Russie et la gare de Millau.
