"Attention, masterpieces in danger! While our ancestors sweated blood and water sometimes at the cost of their lives to build the great lighthouses that mark the coasts of France, our generation will remain you in history like the one who was responsible for having done nothing to prevent their abandonment and destruction? ... We just don't have the right. Today, it is our duty to ensure that the noblest of them pass under the protective wing of historic monuments and are registered in the maritime and fluvial heritage. It must. For the memory of our ancestors, for the preservation of our heritage, for the knowledge and culture of future generations." 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 :
