Listening to the murmur of ancient rocks, the creaking of ancient glaciers, feeling the wind on your face, glimpsing shapes lost in the mist…
The mountains offer moments of grace when we are forced to abandon everything that connects us to our daily lives, everything that is not our essence. We can then immerse ourselves in this atmosphere to make our inner tuning fork resonate, to reconnect with ourselves.
This series attempts to capture the sensations of these moments of eternity, contemplation and introspection.
In order to leave room for the imaginary and the felt, these images depart from reality and the formal representations of mountain landscapes that we are all familiar with.
Take your time, leave the present behind and enter with me into these moments of eternity, because as Eastern wisdom says: “The important thing is not the goal, it’s the path”.
As an amateur photographer, I started out like many others by trying out all kinds of photographic styles and themes. With time, I managed to sort things out, pinpoint my obsessions and better define my field of action.
Photography is an escape from reality, a necessary artistic outlet in a hectic, timed and organised life. It takes me to the antipodes of my life as an engineer, with its countless problems to be solved with cold rigour.
That’s why I enjoy walking on the edge of the world, far from the hustle and bustle, roaming until I find a timeless, dreamlike or strange atmosphere.
Finally, I immerse myself in these places, in the people I meet, and I can capture this image, which should have a certain graphic impact and convey my feelings as well as possible.
