Everything changes, everything disappears in order to reappear later, only madmen know.

Les “Fous du Rhône” are passionate about the violence of the river, its light and its tragedies. Some excavate, search, dig in order to understand and write its story. They map how it moved over the centuries, the traces it has left in the soil and the landscape, archaeological sites, shipwrecks, antique objects rolled in the mud. Others are simply attached to the Rhône because of a story that brought them there, where they have chosen to stay to watch the daily life of the river, watch over its smallest shivering as if bewitched by its presence.

Facing Mireille Loup’s camera, Philippe Rigaud, free scholar, medievalist researcher, represents Le Fou du Rhône No. 1. Mireille Loup is assembling eight images to create a 3D vision of this dream. Under a stormy sky the city of Arles can be seen in the background, Philippe, an old shipping hook in his hand, stands in front of the Césaire, the sailing boat that, after years of restoration, sank in the Rhône in July 2015. Les Fous du Rhône, an idea of Estelle Rouquette, curator of the Musée de la Camargue, is a photographic commission  that will be realized between 2015 and 2016, for the Museum permanent collections.

The Fou du Rhône number 2, "Otello Badan, l’homme qui voit sous la terre" searches the Vigueirat marshland looking for the Canal Marius the Roman general dug during the winter, 103 to 102 B.C.

The Fou du Rhône number 3, "Luc Long, Rhodania Jones (OSS 003)" is an underwater archaeologist, known for his discoveries in the Rhône that he searched for more than 20 years.

The Fou du Rhône number 4, "Bruno Schnebelin, Ilotopiste sur le grand Rhône" settled in Camargue in the 70s, with the theater company that he leads. It is because of them that people setled on the island which is located between Port St. Louis and Salin-de-Giraud, Bruno and Ilotopistes live with their wifes and their children in bioclimatic floating houses that they have designed themselves.

The Fou du Rhône number 5, "Roger Serre, sentinelle du Rhône" arrived in the Camargue at the age of 18. A labourer, he participated in the development of rice cultivation, before becoming a water bailiff to Albaron's pumping station. He lives in a shed where he spends his days fishing and watching the stirrings of the river that fill his life.
