Philip Plisson

"In the attic of my memories, I searched for my past. My memories came back gradually, probably thanks to the intelligence of manual writing, that of the authors. Marine-photographer, creator of emotions, songwriter of fractions of second, I'm talking to you about a recent past between sky and sea, challenges that feed on a daily basis from iodized spray, photos that tell the truth. Forty years ago I have been caressing the sea because at sea I am at home, or rather I am at her. Today, when I lend you my eyes of Fisherman of Images, I hope that the emotion will be there.

This seventieth work is a form of autobiography where for the first time, I reveal myself and talk about the history of my images. " 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 :
