Earth water

Due to the use of the GPS system, every spot on planet Earth is known. By its coordinates of longitude and latitude, I identify and fix the place of every image to the globe. I choose improbable, nameless places, as the middle of lakes, rivers or on the open sea. Of a click, the camera records the time and the move of waves. The photographic work becomes then a classic theater play: the unity of place, of time and of action.

” The sea, the always begun again sea, ” said Paul Valéry. He represents the impermanence and the human vanity to the meaning of the XVIIIth century. The man wants to control everything while the climatic disorders and the rise in the water level demonstrate to all its weaknesses and its powerlessness.

I continue this work according to my travels.
