Photographer's Note

Audierne is a small city of ca. 3,000 inhabitants, located on the south-western coast of the Finistère, which is constituted by the Bay of Audierne, stretching out from Pointe du Raz (North) to Pointe de Penmarch (South). The city was built on the estuary of river Goyen (Breton, Gwaien), which probably gave its name to the city.

Audierne is a small sea resort and an important fishing port (Audierne is the capital city of the AU quartier, all French boats having to bear a two-letter code showing where they are registered). The main specialities of Audierne fishers are lobster, rock lobster, and spider crab.
