METAL and PLANT
They belong to two very different worlds ...
The first, often impressive in size, has the strength of steel. She is a tool for the man who, watching over her and nurturing her with love, sometimes takes her very far ...
The second is more sedentary, more fragile; these are the seasons that punctuate his life ...
Everything seems to oppose them. However, when the first meets the second along a quay, each highlights the uniqueness of the other.

Douai is back in the last "France Photographie" issue of the magazine of the Photographic Federation of France !
After revealing some treasures from the Municipal Archives in number 270, another world, that of the funfair, is presented in number 271.
Each year, at the beginning of July, Douai lives at Gayant holiday time: shows, exhibitions, parade, funfair ... Circumstances oblige, they will not take place this year. So let's go back two years to find this graphic and colorful universe !
For their 3rd edition, the "Focales du pays d'Auge" offer 33 open-air exhibitions inviting visitors to question our relationship to the world and to nature.
400 photos will thus be available on the Honfleur, Équemauville and Beuzeville sites.
They all respond to a double theme:
- The discovery of the great outdoors and the people who work daily on the water,
- The major environmental issues such as global warming, droughts, melting glaciers, access to water, pollution by plastic but also purifying water and its sacred symbolism.
I have the great pleasure of exhibiting in Honfleur, at Lavoir St Léonard, a series of 10 photos, "Adrift" which "highlights" pollution by waste. May this work raise awareness that respect for our environment, nature and the other, is imposed on each of us more than ever ...
For this 7th edition, whose theme is “Balance”, “L'Art en Chemin”, will install works at the Senlis Ecological Park and in surrounding municipalities (Rully-Bray, Balagny-sur-Aunette, Raray, Trumilly, Verberie) 32 plastic artists (painting, engraving, illustration, sculpture, land-art, photography) as well as the texts (news, memories, poetry, description, story ...) of 32 authors.
I will have the pleasure of participating in this beautiful project with a diptych from my series "On a thread" and sharing it with, among others, Yves Cairoli.
These open-air exhibitions will be accessible free of charge from the end of June to the beginning of October.
A final view (with the public, volunteers and artists) could take place at the end of the exhibitions.
It’s a pleasure to find, in the “Still Life” section, a triptych from my series “Journey to the Heart of the Archives”. Shared pleasure - among others and in the section “Creative photography” as far as they are concerned - with Yves Fauvel from SPC Douai (Stora-Enso déconstruction) and Michel Staumont (La Plage) from Collectif Incarnat.
My complete series can be (re) discovered at this address:
This event was to materialize, among other places, at the Douai MJC by an exhibition presenting paintings, photographs, works by children from nursery and elementary schools in Douai.

The discussion focused on the content (the transformation of the site, of the building) but on the form (the research of visual similitaries between the pictures in a composition). The analysis of the lines in some photographs even enabled to approach mathematical notions ( perpendicular and parallelism) and to see that it could have différences betwwen the picture and the réality !
Following their visit of the exhibition « Sublimated Waste » in Maing, the pupils of the CM1 of Mrs Lanoy had wished to meet the photographer, author of this series.
A meeting was arranged on Tuesday, February 17, in the afternoon.
The interview had been carefully prepared and the questions were varied. Here are some :
« Why this title of the exhibition ? Are you a professional photographer ? Where did you take the pictures ? Which camera do you have ? Did you expose abroad ? Which is your preferate waste ?... »
