Herod Becen was born in France around thirty years ago. Born in Rennes and passionate about Brittany, he moved to Saint-Pabu in the heart of the black mountains of the Finistère region. A student of literature, he taught for several years at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale before becoming a professional photographer. His body of work has been formed on his travels, whether roaming inland areas or strolling along the coast. He has crisscrossed the wildest forests and coastal areas in search of places favourable to meditation, which he calls “energy places”. Herod Becen contemplates the horizon from his workshop located in an inlet and prepares his future series by anticipating each of his creations. An accomplished yogi, he compares his spiritual practice to his vision of photography, which he hopes to shed of any superfluous aesthetics, considering that the more beautiful something is, the simpler it should be.
