The artist

Passionate about the photographic medium since 2000, Jules Valentin strives to create images as he undertakes his marine explorations. The photographer does not hesitate to head offshore and play on stability/instability. Through his personal projects, he orders and assembles his chosen locations in shots using rare, dark, and silvery colours. The sight of them evokes a kind of fresh coastal breeze, the movement of the sea, or a shift or freezing of time. Professing a profound admiration for British photographer Michael Kenna, he explores a landscape in which the picturesque tends to be effaced. Like his mentor, he reveals through his lens the universal power of nature and the elements: the movements of the stars over a calm surface, or a tormented ocean, the power of the wind pushing the clouds or unleashing mighty waves.  ...

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, 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, a long exposure time, from minutes to hours, produces contrasts of textures, emblematic of Jules Valentin\'s style. The lighthouse hat
