Morning Mist in Dinard
A beach, a wood, a boat, a man, a woman, everything gets back to this particular time of a shared moment. The common glance of the photographer and of the spectator.
The misty feelings of these photographs try to raise my questions about our perception of the world now, as well as the complexity of a projection into the future.
This series, Morning Mist, was shot in an hour and a half, the atmosphere was really enchanting : a very dense mist with some moments a little less high allowing the colours of the water and the sky to pass through it.
My work as a photographer tries to condense emotions, carefully taking out of my frame things that could disrupt our feelings. I am very careful of keeping far enough from daily life.
This series was my first to receive such an enthusiastic appreciation, I was very happy and it boosted my creativity. The iconic photo, called La Grande Virgule, (Like a large Comma), went in collections in Brussels, Hong-Kong. But also simply Drome and Britany.
These photographs play with horizontal and vertical lines, with the horizon : the limits of the sky, the sea and the land. Uncatchable parallels becoming tangent when they touch the seashore buildings …
Last series of photographs, dedicated to the West, the new world : terminal The Dune du Pilat, near Arcachon on the French Atlantic coast. A long Dune of soft and gentle sand moving under the wind. The Atlantic ocean on one side and a pine tree canopy looking like an other ocean on the other side.
