Philippe Claverin, artist photographer, curious by nature and worshipper of silence.
Passionate about the works built by man, used and then being abandoned. It is a common heritage that passes through the ages and that I love to photograph.
I enjoy being alone in the silence of a place that once was filled with the human and mechanical “hubbub”, it provides me with a particular excitement.
I feed on the sensations that emerge from it and I try to convey this emotion through my photographs. This practice is prohibited and moreover severely repressed by law, so I explore it in a reasoned way. Unfortunately, it has become fashionable and therefore follows all the faults and excesses that such media coverage brings (Accidents, Thefts, Looting and Vandalism, Fires either accidental or criminal, etc.)
We live today in a time when everything goes fast, where everything has to be “quickly”, so I try through my work to bring back from the past the riches of our history.
The only things I leave with my visits are souvenirs and photos.
Welcome to my world.
