Philip Plisson

Thirty-three photographs have been selected from the most beautiful in the work of Philip Plisson. Storms, regattas, ports, fishing or pleasure boats, flora and fauna, pollution, diving, rescues, surfs, lighthouses, tides ... so many themes that make us dream and take us out to sea. A book showing the philosophy of Philip Plisson, "When he is with us at La Trinité, he explains to Malo and me how to take beautiful photos: first, you have to know what you are photographing. Then , you have to know how to wait for hours for the light to be as beautiful as possible. With it, the sea, boats and sailors always look natural. On papi's boats, you learn to take photos, but also to sail. Papi is a great instructor, a real sailor. " Extract from the preface written by Marin, grandson of 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 :
