It is super important to me, to have the actual experience of making a picture be FUN for me and whomever is in the photograph. For me this means keeping the ideas "simple" so that they guide the experience without getting in the way.

My pictures are quite "personal" in that they are inspired by actual experiences, observations or emotions I have had, but they are not sentimental recreations of them.

This exhibition is composed of several different series of underwater images i have made over the past 18 months. Primarily they have been shot in Bermuda, but a few were made in the Bahamas and Mexico. I hope you enjoy them! [see exhibition]

Quelqu'un a touché le verrou / Et j'ai plongé vers le grand jour / J'ai vu les fanfares, les barrières / Et les gens autour.

Ils ont refermé derrière moi / Ils ont eu peur que je recule / Je vais bien finir par l'avoir / Cette danseuse ridicule...

Est-ce que ce monde est sérieux ? / Andalousie je me souviens / Les prairies bordées de cactus / Je ne vais pas trembler devant / Ce pantin, ce minus !

Je vais l'attraper, lui et son chapeau / Les faire tourner comme un soleil / Ce soir la femme du torero / Dormira sur ses deux oreilles

Francis Cabrel, La Corrida [see exhibition]

subject for January contest
Moustaches

The mustache is the set of hair in the face of human beings, located between the nose and the superior lip and is common to be preserved by some men. Also it occurs in women whom, in their majority, opt to wax it.

Historically, it can be said that the mustache is a facial trace that tends to identify different cultures. In the occidental society the mustache fell in disuse in the last decades, being substituted for an increasing requirement of facial cleanness.

Shows us photographs with mustaches.
