It is 10:30 am on November 26, 1996. Since yesterday, a serious depression has become clear on our coastline with, at the end of the morning, gusts which may reach 130 km / h. At midday the gusts are more and more sustained, and the Quiberon Bay is white with sea spray running over an emerald green sea. Daniel, my pilot and friend, proposes to go on the Pointe des Poulains and its small white chapel, today in a gigantic fogger. Half a mile from this theater, Daniel positions his machine above the waves. The photo is there, I just have to take it. I only make two images, two plates would say the ancients. But what plaques! Later, Daniel will tell me that I shouted in my helmet while shooting: "F ... how beautiful it is!" – 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 :
