This pink granite lighthouse is standing in the middle of the sculptures formed by the erosion of the cooled magma combined with the effects of rain, wind, sea spray and salt. It is called MEN RUZ, which means "Red Stone" in Breton. It was the inhabitants of Perros-Guirec and Trégastel who made a petition in 1856 to request its construction, and thus indicate the pass leading to the port of Ploumanac'h in Perros-Guirec. The lighthouse we can see today was rebuilt in 1948, after the destruction of the original lighthouse (made of grey granite) by German troops.

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 :
