About the artwork

The young photographer Herod Becen mainly associates his art with literature. He produced three marine views of the West Atlantic after reading Marguerite Duras? short novel L?Amour (1972). The writer narrates the adventures of three characters who are walking on a deserted beach while looking at the sea, and who constantly retrace their steps, without every tiring of the beauty of nature. Besides his studies, the photographer is also sensitive to poetry and mainly to the short verses of Charles Baudelaire. Working with a medium-format camera or a view camera, he favours formats derived from easel painting and not those of traditional reporting. His images are pure and simple and thus present landscapes full of emotion and authenticity.

The artist

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.  ...

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
