I started my Black & White lab experience and a real passion for quick street captures with a MinoX ( 8 x 11 mm ) camera .

Later , I replaced a Nikon F by a Leica M6 for about 20 years and than switched for the digital version when it came out .

This compact material , almost never leaves me ( 28 Elmarit - 35-50 mm summicron after a nice GAS syndrom ) .

I try to photography with my heart . I like BW rendition and expression , but it is difficult to be color blind .

Many Thanks for your interest .

  

En tant qu'écolier, j'ai utilisé la petite caméra espion Minox (8 x 11 mm) et réalisé surtout des instantanés .

C'est ainsi qu'a débuté mon expérience de laboratoire Noir et Blanc et surtout une passion pour les prises de vue rapides .

Plus tard, j'ai remplacé un Nikon F par l'incroyable Leica M6 qui aura duré plus de 20 ans, avant de passer à la version numérique à sa sortie.

Ce matériel compact et solide ne me quitte quasiment jamais (28 Elmarit - Summicron 35-50 mm ) .

En amateur passionné , j'aurais été exposé à deux reprise en solo.

J'essaye de photographier avec mon cœur.

Un très grand merçi de votre intérêt pour ma galerie !

One must always take photographs with the greatest respect for the subject and for oneself.

“Photography is the power of observation, not the application of technology.”

" Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world."

Arnold Newman

  

”PHOTOGRAPHY IS A MEDIUM OF FORMIDABLE CONTRADICTIONS.

IT IS BOTH RIDICULOUSLY EASY AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLY DIFFICULT.”

EDWARD STEICHEN, 1973.

 

I adore photography, taking photographs, holding my camera, choosing my frame, playing with the light.

Salgado

 

What can I say, I'm in love with the world as I see it, mostly in B&W :) There's nothing in the world like the sweet sound of a Leica shutter. I still have a lot to learn, but always having fun doing it. I try to carry my camera everywhere I go. I would definitely not call my self a technician, I go with my guts, it's always right by me :) I hope you'll enjoy some of my images. JC

Jean -pierre is a very talented photographer ! He´s got a special eye for the bigger picture. Travel images with unusual and humoristic views. I am sure he´s got that selfdistance and smile about himself when he finds a intressting scene. I can see it in front of me! The street murals are amazing all around the world . Panoramas with great range of colours,shapes ,structures and often with a combo of hard and soft are a pleasure to watch. Night sky,stars,fireworks yes . Portraits are warm and instant and the dogportraits are such fun. The natureshots are very involving I feel like I am right there to experience them. Above all he´s got that clever eye for compo that whatever motive it´s harmonic to watch very inspirational ! Thank you for sharing! All the best in your way! Sincerly Helena

Whaoo ... que de belles images : composition au poil ; harmonie des couleurs ; lieux insolites, notamment à Paris (il faudra que je sorte un peu plus dans le centre de Paname ...). J'aime beaucoup et compte revenir voir les nouveautés. Merci.
