Learn more about photography
The Abeille Bourbon is a French high seas, assistance and rescue tug. It is an emblematic 80-meters vessel, which is on permanent standby in the port of Brest, in the Finistère region of France.
On 31 December 2006, the Abeille Bourbon left the Bay of Stiff downwind of the island of Ouessant to set sail on a barge more than 100 meters long drifting in the Ouessant rail.

A few words about the author
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 : www.plisson.com
