SEAS IIIAbout this photograph
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.Read more Read less

In search of landscapes conducive to meditation, he watches the colors and lights of nature inland and along the oceans. A traveling photographer but also an accomplished yogi, Herod surveys what he calls his Energy Places with the artistic desire to bring out in his works the invisible and beneficent forces of the landscape.
