QUIRAINGAbout this photograph
Since 2011, his start as a digital photographer, Julien Talbot has devoted his artistic practice to landscapes, particularly natural landscapes. This photograph was taken on a 2014 road trip through Scotland, specifically on the Isle of Skye, north of the Sea of the Hebrides. With its often dark and cloudy sky, the harsh aspect of its majestic reliefs and the legendary beauty of its volcanic plateaus, the panoramas offered by the isle are often considered the loveliest in Great Britain. Julien Talbot gives us a new vision of it, plumbing his emotional reaction to bring forth his images. He does not seek to transcribe the inherent reality of the scenes he photographs, but rather to capture them as he saw them. Giving a special attention to light, he obtains a high-contrast image, intensifying the aura of mystery that predominates in his iconography.Read more Read less

The favoured themes of French photographer Julien Talbot, born in the 1980s, are related to landscape, whether urban, natural or alternative, with a profound fascination for the United States. Although drawn to the visual from his earliest youth, his photographic voyage, as he likes to call it, really began only in 2011, when he acquired his first digital reflex camera. After studying management in the Paris region, he began his professional life in marketing, but simultaneously took evening courses at the Ã©cole de Photographie EFET, the Mairie de Paris, and Les Gobelins, nourishing his passion for photography. With his new technical skills acquired, he and his camera became inseparable, exploring Paris, Scotland and then New York to capture the essential atmosphere of each environment. His photographs were exhibited in Paris in November 2014.
