    Mark la photo ou le voyage ?

    La photo est un voyage ! La photo le miroir du voyage ! Qui en appelle d’autres ! L’important étant de passer de l’autre côté du miroir. Le voyage n’est qu’un déplacement corporel, et n’a d’intérêt que si l’on promène tous ses sens, comme un violoniste surfe sur son instrument! Sinon on ne fait que regarder et se déplacer d’un lieu a un autre, la distance ne crée pas le voyage. Les voyages résonnent sur l’individu qui veut bien réfléchir, et le confrontent à sa propre réalité! S’il accepte d’observer la différence qui le regarde. Le seul bagage d’un voyageur n’est que lui même. Le voyageur qui arrive chargé d’a prioris et de certitudes n’est qu’un passant égaré.

    Une belle image c’est quoi ?

    Si elle est faite pour être vue… ce sera celle qui touche celui qui la regarde! Une photo comme beaucoup d’autres choses n’a pas nécessairement besoin d’être intellectualisée, ni de beaucoup de commentaires, une légende devrait suffire, arrêtons de répondre à des critères de mode et de standards, respectons ceux qui les regardent, il n’y a aucune obligation à apprécier tout ce que l’on vous suggère ! Après, celles qui me plaisent répondent à ma sensibilité, à l’état d’esprit du moment, souvenirs, affectif, tout cela… comme chacun le sait, est appelé à se transformer, à évoluer.

    Ton plus beau shoot ?

    C’est le prochain, je ne vis pas sur des acquis, l’acquis sert au niveau des expériences futures, en photo c’est demain qui m’intéresse, car aujourd’hui c’est déjà hier. Celui que tu veux faire ? Celui qui me surprendra encore et encore, j’ai encore du monde et des situations à rencontrer et à vivre. (Je l’espère……)
