A short overview of all galleries presented on my website is provided here below. Within each gallery, click on any thumbnail to see an enlarged version of the picture. Enjoy!
I love to photograph trees: they are as cooperative models can be! With the other forest inhabitants, they do not share this quite annoying tendency to suddenly flee when you approach them. Besides they are so easily found, there, in the woods… And, usually, they will even helpfully hold the posture for a long time, perfectly still and grand.
Delicate or rugged, barks are really beautiful. Have you ever noticed their intricate designs and the multitude of their patterns, shapes and textures appearing on intertwining scales? Abstract allergics, beware however! Once a friend told me that, whenever I showed him a picture from which he could not tell which sides were up, down, left or right, then he knew it truly was mine. Well, I suppose some of the work here might fit this criterion, so that I know he would never doubt my authorship for this gallery.
Fallen leaves were one of my first recurrent theme when I started photography a few years ago. I still love to photograph their colors and shapes, particularly during fall. Trees, barks, leaves? No, I do not have a gallery on tree roots and radicles! Yet.
Here is a collection of pictures I took of various cities and places I visited. Wether showing large cityscapes, evidencing single buildings, or rendering more abstract views of these sites, the images gathered in this gallery are not primarily meant to depict accurately the location; their intent is rather to reflect the serendipitous beauty of the place, that sometimes emerges at the bend of a street.
Wépion and Namur are the places where I live and work. They are located in Belgium, along the Meuse river. Namur stands at the foot of an old citadel that was build on the hill surrounded by the Sambre and Meuse rivers at their junction. Wépion lies further up-stream, in front of a small village, called Dave, where is situated an XVIIIth century castle (Fernand Nuñez).
This part of my website is dedicated to this beautiful area of the Meuse valley. If you are given the opportunity, I can only recommend you to visit the upper Meuse valley; I think I will now let the pictures speak for themselves!
This is another rather abstract gallery with pictures of water, reflections, waves, ice, snow, and clouds.
I am definitely not a wild life photographer, but I have occasionally had the opportunity to photograph either animals in the wild, or wild animals in contact with human activities. Sometimes I try to depict them in their natural - or not so natural - environment; sometimes I prefer to include them only as landscape elements.
I had the chance to spend three weeks in Alberta and British Columbia around the Canadian National Parks of Jasper, Banff and Yoho in the late spring of 2000. Here is a sample of the scenic pictures I brought back from that unforgettable trip.
These panoramas were taken from the tow path that borders the banks of the Meuse river in Wépion (Belgium), so that the views are of the village called "Dave," of the "Fernand Nuñez" castel, and of Dave's cliffs, also known as "Les Rochers du Néviaux."
These recent pictures (May 2003) are my first attempt at stitching photographs digitally to create large panoramic views. Although there is room for some improvements, these are quite promising results! (If you click on a thumbnail in this particular gallery, beware that the files are quite large, ~400k, because of the important width of the panoramas!)
I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white. I love black & white.
Well, maybe now I'll love it!
Some people are colorblind, I think I must be graylevel-blind. So far, I cannot remember having taken a single black and white picture that slightly pleases me… When I use B&W film, more often than not, I end up pesting against my silly idea of not carrying color rolls as well, because of that unique, great (color) opportunity I had just missed.
Well, I haven't completely given up yet: I have hence resorted to desaturate some of my color pictures for this digitally manipulated gallery.
