The dynamic specific to sailing lends itself perfectly to Reignier?s study of movement. The treatment of traditional seascape iconography is transformed by it. If the subject tends to disappear, the atmosphere peculiar to navigation still remains at the centre of the depiction. The swell, the billowing of the sails, the pitching of the small boats, the mist and the spray are the essence of these photographs. Bernard Reignier transports his audience to the high seas in bad weather. The wind pushes the small boats at full speed. Whilst the waves crash on the hull, the rattling of the wire ropes jostled by the wind is constant and the swell which rushes into the sails produces sharp flapping. It is as though the observer is placed at the heart of the representation.

The artist

Bernard Reignier

Bernard Reignier discovered photography thanks to an enthusiast whilst at secondary school. Since 2006, he has focussed on the representation of movement. Whilst the aim of photography is to depict a subject at a precise moment, he tests boundaries. During shooting, he mimics the gestures of painters and catches movement with his camera. This purely mechanical process tends to blur the subject which ends up dissolving into the background.
