Childish pleasure

This Winter, we presented Julien Regnier with a new challenge, the ISF Master – namely the alpine skiing international tour for skiers over 30 years of age. On this occasion, Julien was accompanied by his Leica M – model number whatever – and, between two races, turned himself into a reporter. He took great pictures of passionnate veterans whom, without hesitation, drove long distances to slip into race suits, tenderly wax their skis and enjoy chronometers in good company. Enjoy the pictures of this joyful and ingenuous atmosphere that would almost portray alpine skiing as a childhood game.
