The artist

Passionné par le médium photographique à partir de 2000, Jules Valentin s’applique à réaliser des images au regard de ses errances marines. Le photographe n’hésite pas à prendre le large pour jouer du stable et de l’instable. Par le biais de projets personnels, il ordonne et rassemble des lieux électifs dans des clichés aux couleurs raréfiées, profondes et argentées. Leur vue suggère une fraîcheur comme apportée par le souffle du littoral, le mouvement de la mer, ou par le glissement puis l’arrêt du temps. Vouant une profonde admiration au photographe britannique Michael Kenna, il explore à sa manière un paysage où le pittoresque tend à s’effacer. À l’égal de de son mentor, se dévoile sous son objectif la puissance universelle de la nature et des éléments : les mouvements des astres surplombent la surface calme ou tourmentée de l’océan, la force du vent pousse les nuages ou déchaîne les vagues.  ...

About the artwork

The sky, ocean, coastlines, and horizon are brought together in the solitude of the undecided hours of dawn or twilight. Strangely, the scene seems to exist in an alien space, which is contradicted by the presence of the familiar: beacons, dykes, lighthouses, jetties, and walkways. His seascapes invite us to commune with the image. Like Atget\'s photographs, they are devoid of all human presence. Only the traces of human acts allusively imply their presence. The viewers imagination is given free reign to invent a seascape narrative. In this world, where the horizon is neither sky nor land, the exposure time varies from minutes to hours, producing a contrast of textures, emblematic of Jules Valentin\'s style. Quiet morning was captured in Saint-Malo in 2016. According to the photographer, we can observe the slow passing of time over the diving board of the seawater pool at Bon Secours beach.

PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...

ALFREDO SANCHEZ

Alfredo Sanchez was not predestined for photography. Born in Mexico in 1954, he studied law and took up a career in the private sector. “My free time was spent playing tennis, horse riding, and let’s not forget my favourite pastime: photography,” he says. Much later, towards the ...
