Denis Brihat - Les Arbres
Among the many exhibitions of Denis Brihat's work, few have brought together his photographs of trees. And yet it was by focusing on his most secret prints of a forest, a pine or a clearing that we were seduced by the strength of Denis' work on these themes. He magnifies realty through his management of contrasts fullness and thinning of light, the texture of his prints. How to describe the emotion felt in front of the sadness of this "cherry tree in the fall"? we experience the same delight watching this cherry tree losing the leaves as we do seeing cherry tree in spring which blossoms in all his splendour. Denis sees in nature what will become a photograph of Brihat. It is the strength... " looking for a long time is the whole secret..." Denis's photographs are visible at the National Library of France and available at the gallery Retour De Voyage, which also organizes meetings with the artist.
