Description

Sea Fever

Last verse of the poem by John MASEFIELD

SEA FEVER

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way, where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

 

From my blue eyes

Travel diary to the land of wonder.

The point of view of my photographs is marked, the treatment noticed.
A detail calls out to me, a landscape moves me, I see poetic arrangements everywhere in the way the world is made and I try to capture them.

Once these visions have been collected, at the other end of the globe or at the counter next door, I still use a process of subjectivity, the blue, ostentatious cyanotype print, with a pictorialist treatment that disturbs, stains and transforms the image.

This old collection goes back to my beginnings with the medium, I was still very attached to photo negatives and used them to retranscribe my enchanted visions, the sparks that I detect in nature and among humans.

The principle of life in blue !
