Landscape. Minimalism. Fine Art.

Japan - Hokkaido

10+ years of winter trips around the Island in the quiet and pristine snow of Hokkaido. From the northern landscapes of Wakkanai to the Tanchozuru in Kushiro, the emblematic and elegant cranes which have been intensively-represented in the Japanese painting. Second largest island in Japan, it is known for its varied natural landscapes, snowy mountains, and hot springs. It offers rich biodiversity and unique endemic fauna. But Hokkaido remains famous among photographers for its unique minimalist landscapes.


China - Huangshan

The Yellow Mountain in Spring, Autumn and Winter. A mountain range where mist, sea of clouds, forests in fog and snowfalls have inspired the traditional Chinese landscape painting and literature for centuries. Huangshan is also famous for its dizzying granite peaks and century-old twisted pines anchored in rock. Located in Anhui province, these mountains are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list for their unique biodiversity and their fascinating landscapes.

Lake Geneva

An ongoing work about Lake Geneva (Léman) since 1995. Lake Geneva is a mesmerizing natural jewel that stretches on the borders of Switzerland and France. Renowned for its ethereal beauty and captivating charm, this enchanting lake holds a special place in the hearts of locals. Spanning approximately 580 km2, it is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe, offering a serene and picturesque setting. This makes it an inexhaustible source of inspiration for minimalist photography in all seasons.


Japan - Shikoku Henro

The pilgrimage around the island of Shikoku, also known as Henro in Japanese, involves connecting 88 temples of Shingon Buddhism, spread across 4 prefectures. Several thousand pilgrims venture onto these paths spanning about 1200 kilometers every year. Traditionally, the pilgrims, called Ohenro, travel on foot on this ambitious journey in a personal quest. I have divided this project into 4 trips, spread out over 6 years, to complete my work in these fascinating 88 temples. This project is part of my ongoing research on the Shingon Buddhism statuary all over Japan.

China - West Lake

West Lake (Xi Hu) is one of the most beautiful lakes in China. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this lake has everything to please landscape photographers. Located in the former capital, Hangzhou, West Lake has always been an important source of artistic and literary inspiration. The relations between Hangzhou and West Lake are deeply rooted in the city's history and culture, and they have evolved significantly over the centuries. West Lake has been and continues to be a vital component of Hangzhou's economy and tourism. It is definitely one the most inspiring places I have ever seen.
