My aim is to project the viewer's gaze into a dreamlike, positive universe that leaves room for dreams and interpretation.Loic LAGARDE
I've been drawing and painting since I was a child. I've always felt the need to express visually what I felt and saw. Later, photography came naturally to me as I traveled around as a young adult. I wanted to capture and immortalize the beautiful moments I experienced and the places in the world I visited. This passion grew and grew into a profession.
Your inspiration, particularly artistic?
I think I draw my inspiration naturally from the world of painting, especially in terms of composition and color. That's why my photos have a sublimated pictorial side. I also draw inspiration from what other travel photographers are doing, especially in Asia. And finally, as a big fan of Japanese culture, I can't help but mention Miyazaki as an inspiration.
What characterizes your writing?
I'm always told that my photos are instantly recognizable. There's no need to sign them. The colorful, luminous, warm aspect and pictorial compositions (like a painting) define my work.
Do you have a particular technique?
I work mainly during the golden hour, just after sunrise or before sunset, to capture as much of that warm atmosphere as possible. In post-production, I adjust the colorimetry of my photos to suit my style. If the shot has the right light, there's no need for a lot of editing.
Do you have an anecdote to share?
I'm a travel photographer, so it's hard for me to think of a single anecdote!
What photo would you like to have taken?
I try as hard as I can to take the photos I dream of taking. Only the passage of time can prevent me from doing so, as everything can change. That's also why I try to capture as many moments as possible.
What's your proudest achievement?
My "Planète France" exhibition in Paris (Bercy Village) on our beautiful country, which took place in the first half of 2023.
Your next projects?
