The lighthouse of the Ile Vierge, off the coast of northern Finistère, is the highest in Europe, and even in the world, as it rises 82.50 metres above sea level. It was built in 1897, right next to the first one, which had insufficient range to mark this extremely dangerous area. If you have the courage to climb its 397 steps, you will have an exceptional panoramic view of the Abers and the coast of the shipwreckers, from the island of Batz to the island of Ouessant. The lighthouse has been classified as a Historic Monument in 2011.

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 :
