Like a delicate drawing with Indian ink, the stranded seaweeds seem to carry the history of their underwater life. Dried in the sun and having for only witnesses, the walkers and Denis Brihat to immortalize them.
Denis Brihat has dedicated 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 of seaweed which, with its rounded forms, allows us to catch a glimpse of the dance it does in the ocean currents. This 1977 image was printed in 6 copies in 1998.
