You are welcome!
I am artist painter/photographer and art restorer.
I take photos the same way I paint.
Like my illustrious predecessor the marvelously tender eighteenth century
painter Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin, who "painted the glory of everyday things",
to my eye, nothing is "everyday": it's the way we look at things that make them sublime or dreary.
Photographs are made first with the heart, with the assistance of the experience and the technique
that are there to help. As once again, Chardin said, "Colors are put to use, but painting
is done with the feelings." I make every effort not to forget that, in order to
interpret what I see the way I might a musical score. What is done
without love is bootless and empty.
Lyon, this magnificent city I am so fortunate as to live in, comes to me
as a daily source
of inexhaustible amazement, as much in the wealth of its heritage and its geographical
make-up as in the nearly Italian or Flemish ight that have it shimmering with
the time of day and the season.
So, like my beloved J.M. William Turner,
I take delight in the wonderful light that brings everything to life and
makes them glisten in my eyes, never the same, ceaselessly new and full of
surprises. I don't hunt for anything, I just open my heart and senses to
everything that can reach them. In fact, the image chooses me.
And makes my Italian soul cry out:
Thank you a lot for your visit! I hope for you a nice and sweet stroll in the forest of my pictures
