Farms,wind turbines, sheep and big sky : a landscape. Fermes,turbines à vent, moutons et grand ciel:un paysage.

Hard to keep life in this very downsized for web version. Difficile de faire vivre  cette image dans cette version reduite pour la toile.

Les Garçons The Boys Paris 1984 J’espère que vous allez bien. I hope you’re going well.

black and white photography of four boys on a street

From a 35 mm negative, digitalised using a D800 and 105 mm macro and then processed in LR and PS .D’après un négatif 35 mm, numérisé avec un D800 et un 105mm macro puis édité dans LR et PS

Although taken 30 years ago, I remember these boys well, even their names. Bien que prise il y a 30 ans, je me souviens bien de ces garçons, même de leurs noms.

La Bastoche

black and white photograph of the Place de la Bastille

From a 35 mm negative. Place de la Bastille or the Bastoche as we call it in slang.

Taken on a cold winter morning. It’s an image that I prefer to sanitised postcardy views, it says Paris to me.

You see what you’re looking for: Around Glencoe and Skye.

Chevaugeon Photo : Portfolio and Prints

I recently went on a road trip to Skye via Glencoe. I had two very different cameras : a bulky high res Nikon D800 DSLR with a tilt and shift lens on a stand and the fuji X-Pro. I’ve never particluarly sought to produce either pretty or ugly images, if I am moved by what’s in front of me then I’ll aim to capture it and translate it as best I can, beautiful or ugly or plain for that matter. I always hope to capture something beyong decorativeness.It was strange stumbling across the portrait of the little girl left at the foot of a tree and stranger still encountering that dead deer ( don’t look if you don’t want to see it) on the edge of the road amongst some rubbish. Can you see the flock of birds flying away from the cemetery ?

Early days for a site dedicated to showcasing my work

First to all of you who drop by, just to say a big thank you for your interest :it means a lot to me.

Blogging is helping me  clarify my thoughts about my own work whilst allowing me to discover other photographers , writers, poets , thinkers, painters, activists and more.

I have started creating a site for showcasing only. The site is in its very early stages as I am getting my head around the pros and cons of the template I’m using. Not much to see yet but it is close enough to the feel I am after: simple, “dépouillié” as we say in French, which I find suits most of my work. Three categories for now . It opens on the Paris slideshow. There’s a permanent link to it underneath the title of this blog site.

Wishing you every success in your endeavours.

Kind Regards

Christophe
