There cannot be a festival oriented towards nature and its various components without the presence of some specialists in landscape photography. Phot’Aubrac cannot do without this idea in the middle of this area which is among the most photogenic.
Phot’Aubrac 2021: Gil Cipière
The self-taught artisan photographer, in the noblest sense, deals with his creations from start to finish. He works and shoots in a traditional way with a very refined composition, very often in analog. Which he digitizes himself and then makes his own piezographic prints, when he moves away from his traditional laboratory. You have understood that he presents mainly black and white works, particularly well toned down and very rich.
Phot’Aubrac 2021: Jean Michel Lenoir
In the small cocoon of the Aubrac annex (the city), in a scenography well suited to the place and the works, Jean Michel Lenoir presented a photographic set of minimalist style, quite in tune with the times, as I this has already been pointed out. The images are simple, clean, pleasant, figurative and decorative. The landscape is often reduced to an essential subject which is essential both in terms of its presence and that of the rendering it represents. A pleasant exhibition in a mythical place.
Phot’Aubrac 2021: Marc Cheneau
The photographer is a professional with multiple and very diverse skills in the uses of photography (nature and animal photos, corporate reports and corporate portraits, environment and events). More than one string to his bow as they say. He presented the photographs he brought back from a stay in the Faroe Islands. To refresh memories, this archipelago of 18 islands and islets, is located in the North Atlantic, halfway between Scotland and Iceland, attached to Denmark. This State of 50,000 inhabitants is completely autonomous (except for its defense). Marc’s images share with us what looks like one of the end of the world.
