Philip Plisson

The sinago, or sinagot, is a small sailing boat, traditionally used until the early 1950s in the Gulf of Morbihan for coastal fishing and oyster dragging. Her rigging consists of two third sails. The ocher red color of the sails is due to the mixture of tallow and crushed pine bark used to tan them.
It was a windless morning that Philip Plisson captured this rare moment of calm and serenity.

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 :
