TITLE: Wild in Black
Nature offers beautiful lights. The very principle of photography is to retranscribe them as well as possible through the subjects and the atmospheres observed. Starting from this observation, I take the opposite side in order to propose a predominantly black concept suggesting only the animals encountered.
Recognizing an animal only from its silhouette, highlighting a subject on the basis of a shadow or a black background by occulting its environment, such is the credo of this series. Between photography and painting, there is only one step, that of drawing with natural light the observed subjects.

Burgundian by birth, yet it's the oceans that will take me over. Between 1998 and 2005, I took part in several scientific works within a marine mammal research station and took part in several expeditions in the Sea of Cortez, Norway and Patagonia. After several stays in the Azores, I accompany during a season of eco-volunteers on the island of Pico as a naturalist guide.
Today, I continue to travel the world in search of encounters with the local fauna. From the bears of Finland to the insects of the Amazon, there is only one step... the emotion of an observation where man and animal consider each other. Photography thus allows me to make the public aware of the beauty of the inhabitants of our planet. My main goal is to share my knowledge, my passion and my experience of naturalist travel.
But the best is yet to come... My next trip, with new encounters!
