Richard Barthelemy was a scientist, photographer and an artist endowed with a particular sensitivity. As a biologist and naturalist who was sensitive to the inter working of the natural and human landscape and sensitive to the intangible heritage of the peoples of the plateau Purhépecha. His particular love of photography and his closeness to the people of the plateau allowed to photographing of touching beauty. Beyond the search for the best ethnographic record, he was concerned about the angle, light and contrasts, hence his predilection for black and white photography. Barthelemy's aesthetic conveys a particular understanding of peasant Purhépecha in Michoacan and Mexico. With the complicity of the people of the plateau, he managed to capture pieces of history over more than twenty years, surprise and excite even though some of these landscapes, people and buildings no longer exist.
