The Jument lighthouse marks the Fromveur passage, between Ouessant and Molène islands in the Iroise Sea, known as the most dangerous in Europe. It was built between 1904 and 1911, on the reef of Ar Gazeg (the Mare in Breton) and classified as Historic Monuments in 2017. Lighthouse keepers have always called lighthouses built on land the "paradises", those built on islands the "purgatories" and finally those built at sea the "hells". They generally began their career in "hell", to end in "paradise". In October 2014, Petra storm has once again made life hell at the Jument lighthouse!

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 :
