Like Pattes blanches, Liteau was shot at Poligny, in the Jura Mountains in Eastern France. In this case in a school for students preparing to go into hotel jobs. The word liteau evokes the cloth that waiters use to cover their arm, or which they hold in their hand to avoid getting burnt by the hot dishes. What the cloth also evokes is the idea of a school fostering a French tradition. The series has a number of similarities with Pattes blanches, particularly the presence of the same textures: skin, aluminium, tiling, and of course the white of the overalls, though, in this series, there is the occasional blue outfit. The later series Bleus de travail is a further development in this corpus centred on the world of vocational education.
