The concept of geo-biography (Guy Quer, Patrice de Bellefon, and Jacques Marion cases)

Abstract : This presentation deals with the principles of clinical geography, and proposes the concept of geo-biography. The geo-biography is a life history that uses tools from geography (migration, spatiality/territoriality, dwelling, lived space, mobility, place). The presentation examines the case of three mountain tourism professionals. In the Pyrenees, in southern France, Patrice de Bellefon is a local guide connected to the territory, a local, almost a terroir person. Guy Quer is drawn to Chamonix by territorial attraction to "become an Alpine guide”. Jacques Marion, who was born in Normandy, lived in Marseilles, Nîmes, Paris and then moved to the Pyrenees, is one of the dynamic people, an spatial individual, whose activities demonstrate the ability to overcome the territorial complex of local people.
