Photographer's Note

As I was approaching the city of Pogradec, I saw some people along the road selling hazelnuts. While some were busy picking the nuts, others were cracking them before putting them in small plastic bags. I decided to stop by and see this friendly Albanian who was hard at work in his makeshift shack. Above him, standing near a small waterfall, his few goats were leisurely grazing. I bought him two bags of his precious crop, yet I didn’t succeeded in haggling over the price (I noticed that Albanians are very tough businessmen !).

En arrivant sur Pogradec, j’ai croisé, le long de la route, plusieurs personnes qui vendaient des noisettes. Tandis que certains étaient occupés à la cueillette, d’autres cassaient les noisettes avant de les mettre en sachet. J’ai choisi de m’arrêter près de cet Albanais sympathique en plein travail dans son abri de fortune. Au-dessus de lui, ses quelques chèvres broutaient tranquillement à côté d’une petite cascade. Je lui ai acheté deux sachets de sa précieuse récolte, sans avoir toutefois réussi à marchander le prix (j’ai remarqué que les Albanais étaient très durs en affaires !).
