Photographer's Note

One of my favourite photo subjects in Nantes : the yellow Titan crane ! It was built in 1954 to load prefabricated elements in the former Dubigeon shipyards of Nantes. It weights 400 tons, it is 43 metres height and call load up to 80 tons. The shipyards closed in 1989 but the Nantes city council bought the crane to preserve a major element of the industrial heritage of the city. It was restored and is today one of the most known symbols of Nantes !
