The Royal Eagle has always touched me with his eyes, rocked me with his majestic flight, captivated me by his predatory behavior. My first unexpected encounters, followed by numerous trackings, observations and sharpening over the years, have contributed to the birth of a love story and fascination with this majestic hawk, emblem of our mountain ranges. Throughout the year, the Golden Eagle is my eye and my goal. The result is an exhibition entitled “Les Ailes du Vent”, inspired by the self-published photo book of the same name published in August 2019, which presents this super predator of the air in its mineral, forest, snow-covered environment. The mountainous environment of this mythical bird allow multiple aesthetic variations according to the seasons. A few watercolours by my mother Danièle Bonnet depicting the Royal Eagle, its environment and the species that constitute its potential prey complete this work and the exhibition. The book “Les Ailes du Vent” and the associated exhibition present only images of free and wild animals living in their natural environment. All precautions have been taken to avoid any bad interference with the animals. The photos were made without bait, filters, structures or alterations in order to faithfully show the attitudes, lights and natural atmospheres that prevailed during the shooting. These images were made in the Gorges du Verdon (04), in the Mercantour National Park and the hinterland of Grassy (06), and in the Aravis massif (73-74) between 2011 and 2019.
