"It is October 1995. I have a meeting with Belem at the end of the afternoon between the islands of Groix and Belle-Île for the last photo session by helicopter for the production of the book: The Centenary of Belem. The weather is particularly difficult this day: drizzle, no wind, flat sea. As agreed, we take off from La Trinité at 5 p.m. to travel to Belle-Île and wait for Belem. A very nice surprise awaits us! The wind picked up, the sky became stormy with the open sea but above all a very nice swell train accompanied this change of weather conditions. Belem shows up with a few sails tight and taut, but still enough to keep the boat alive. I think this is the most beautiful photo session I have ever had with this boat! Since then, this photo has gone around the world, whether in poster (30x40 cm or 60x80 cm) or in photo on canvas. Welcome aboard!" - Philip Plisson

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you. For more information :
