Les montagnes célestes du Huang Shan par Emmanuel Boitier

Que ce soit dans les montagnes d’Auvergne, où il vit, sur les hauts plateaux d’Abyssinie, dans les immensités glacées du Varanger, parmi les pics vertigineux du Huang Shan ou encore dans les Highlands écossaises, Emmanuel Boitier recherche et apprécie les endroits où la nature, véritablement prégnante, offre un espace infini. Des endroits où l’homme et la nature n’ont d’autres choix que de vivre ensemble et non l’un à côté de l’autre. Des endroits où la nature impose le rythme des vies. Il nous raconte ci-dessous l’un de ses voyages.

Finding the inspiration within you

Finding the inspiration within you
by Ralph Nordstrom

ralphnordstrom02aNature and art are what I grew up with and what I love.

ralphnordstrom02bMy casual approach to photography became more focused when I took my first workshop in 2006. From that time on I have been on a journey – a journey of personal discovery. Because, as my photography evolves, as it improves, I learn more about myself. I’ve gained a lot of technical skills along the way, both in the field and in the darkroom (don’t worry, I shoot digital but I still call it the darkroom because it does the same thing and people don’t freak out like they sometimes do when I say « Photoshop »).

ralphnordstrom02cBut the technical skills are just a means to creative expression which is what I really focus on. They are what I call the Creative Vocabulary that allows me to communicate what it is I have to say about the world.

ralphnordstrom02dAnd discovering new things in the world, in nature, and expressing them through my photographs is where I am on my journey today. The journey will never end; the destination is not clear and changes as I change. But then, isn’t it the journey and not the destination that’s important?

Finding Myself in the Stars

Finding Myself in the Stars
by Don Whitebread

California, USA – I spent the summers of my youth wherever my father’s work as a geologist took us, usually camped deep in a desert mountain range.  Watching the slow change of light and weather during the day, and the flow of stars across the night sky was my best entertainment. This background fueled my interest in photography, and has drawn me to remote locations throughout my life. I chose to photograph this series using only natural light, and rarely moonlight, to show that faint, diffuse starlight that few people really see any more.
