Sebastien Wiertz – Painting with my camera
« Painting with my camera » is a series started in the summer 5 years ago while I was experimenting long exposure on nature and landscapes. This experiment helped me understand that nature and landscapes were not my type of photography, a human presence was missing.
During the same summer, while strolling with my family in Bordeaux, I saw a crowd of people playing on the water mirror on the quay of the Garonne. At this moment, I knew I had to capture that colorful picture with my camera using a long exposure. I used my camera like a paintbrush sweeping a canvas and converting the walking crowd into dancing silhouettes. An abstract vision of the reality I was observing then. Through my lens, the crowd suddenly transformed into a music partition and I immediately decided for the title “Human Symphony”.
This is how the series « Painting with my camera » was born. It is the outcome of my city wanderings with my family.
The exhibition “Painting with my camera” is shown until end of April in Luxembourg.
