These small seaweeds half buried by the sand and whipped by the wind draw in spite of themselves small shapes on the grains of clear sand. All interpretations are possible, if some see only a beached kelp, others will find a Japanese symbol or surrealist drawings that belong to each.
Denis Brihat has devoted his whole life to photography. The traditional color of the photography industry did not satisfy him for his personal creations, he developed by experimenting alone, the tints and shades. Having become a true master of printing techniques, he went beyond the imposed boundaries to transcribe nature magnified by his poetic eye. The emotional power that emanates from his photographs is the result of his aesthetic requirement whose rendering is without equal. But the technical processes are at the service of a single mission: "to reveal the beauty or the fantasy of a form, the complexity of a structure, the subtlety of a texture, the iridescence of a light, the poetry of a moment" as Solange, his wife, says so well. It is impregnated with classical music which offers themes and variations that he wished to treat certain photographic subjects in the same way. Here, the sand and its variations. It is thus that through his glance on the creations of the nature a priori banal, he reveals the beauty and gives to see its infinite richness.
Retour De Voyage has selected this photograph that inexplicably captivates and soothes us. This image from 1977 was printed in 10 copies in 1998.
