About . . .

Welcome to my website Photographie Fine-Art Photography. The title may sound pretentious, but let's see what Wikipedia says about it:

Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. Fine art photography stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally re-presenting objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.

However, I dare not think of myself as an artist (someone who creates a work) but rather as a craftsman (person who carries on his own account a trade, generally traditional).

You will find on « Photographie Fine-Art photography », photographs that translate my personal vision of the places I have visited and objects and landscapes that I have seen. My tools are a digital camera and image processing softwares; the new tools of the traditional profession of photographer.

Another feature of the Fine-Art Photography is that often each photo is part of a series. This approach allows to make connections between images and enhances the photographer's desire to present a thoughtful work. You can get a look on the special issue of the excellent french magazine Réponses Photo – Les séries photographiques that deals in depth of the subject.

In this sense I try to present on the site, 3 to 5 posts in sequence, including images that either by their common traitement or the subject, can be considered part of a series.

Right now, 3 photographers inspire me through their work:

  •  Anna Julia Gospodarou, Greek architect and photographer;
  •  Joel Tjintjelaar, Dutch photographer;
  •  Rupert Vandervell , British photographer.

These three photographers, who are not necessarily partners, share a great talent for representing contemporary urban landscapes in black and white. In their photos, the dark areas are very pronounced and sometimes cover most of the image. But cleverly, these shadows reinforce the lighter zones in a magical way. Though dark, it emerges from their photographs a great depth. . Do not hesitate to "google » their names on the Internet.

Thank you for visiting my site, I hope you will enjoy my pictures.
