Jacques Doukhan : Like a little poppy


The return of the poppy is already reassuring because it is evocative

of a less polluted nature, with less “roundup”, a rebirth of the

soils and therefore of life with a capital L.


But to love poppies, you have to be an idiot, you have to be an idiot … like

the friend Mouloudji sang, and I am certainly the most stupid of

poppyphile , poppy addicts.

Learned pavophile , I carried out all kinds of experiments with

my darlings, braving rain, wind and fog without hesitation.

If some eat or smoke it, I prefer to taste it

with the eyes this irresistible magnet and use my camera

to offer eternity to this ephemeral flower, hence my nickname of

Mr. Poppy.


Passionate about photography since my youngest age, in other words prehistory,

I have often come across our papaver by chance while researching  something else,

from the Jura to the Massif Central, from Provence to Algeria and, wherever

these pretty red touches caught my eye.


Also passionate about Iceland, I spent several months there several times,

I also have a whole range of photographs that speak of this majestic country


Other photos of flowers will accompany the poppies.


The photos presented here are mounted on cotton canvas stretched on a

sturdy wooden frame with integrated hook. – Jacques Doukhan
