Montier Photo Festival




  After laboratory photography studies in the early 2000's, I went to London and Paris, to work in a studio photography. Over the years, I realize that in town I feel empty inside, and decide to return back to the basics. I have been living in the Swiss Alps ever since : I have allowed my passion for nature and the photos become more and more personal and today I only create projects that are close to my feelings or sensations. I feel very lucky if some of my pictures are seen in festivals: I needed some inner courage to dare to show their contours...


This exhibition has taken many different forms ; first by traveling the North according to my childhood dreams, then by traveling through remarkable authors, lastly by creating this project : Suggesting a different way, more subjective, on these polar regions in mutation....to catch these atmospheres that the eye, too lively, lets out... Flooding of silence my eyelids for forgetting modern life... Some of the photographs presented were taken in room 20x25 when conditions allowed. I like the craftsmanship of this process, which allows me to live more deeply some sensations and which moves me away from the suddenness that confines so many joys. When I create a giant cyanotype exposed to the sun, I feel in peace with myself. I select beautiful textured and natural papers, and where I want that a picture appear, I paint with a carefully prepared emulsion. The sun will reveal my image after several ten minutes of exposure. Nearly one hour in winter...This unique result depends on the brushing, washing and drying, but also on the sun that reveals my «painting» in photography... When the picture is immersed in water, the contours of the photo are revealed in cyan blue. At this moment, I know if I succeeded in capturing the magic of nature, which seems painted in harmony with the sun and respect for time..
