Denis Collette...!!! - View my recent photos on Flickriver

 

For me, the art of photography is first a great metaphysical and meditative experience. Heaven has a road: the Brightness's Road. Early in the morning, each day, I follow the light walking along my wild river bank on my little piece of this planet. I have a tremondous time and I let my feelings come trought. I do not shoot with my eyes. I shoot with my heart. I become the river.

Professionally, i'm a graphic designer and consultant in communication/marketing! You can see our site here: www.collettecommunication.com/

 

Pour moi, la photographie est d'abord et avant tout une grande experience metaphysique et méditative. Le ciel a une route. Tôt le matin, chaque jour, je suis d'un pas léger cette lumière, longeant les rives de ma rivière sauvage sur mon petit morceau de planète en état de totale réceptivité à ce qui est. C'est en devenant rivière qu'elle me livre ses secrets.

Professionnellement, je suis designer/graphiste et consultant en communication/marketing. Vous pouvez visiter notre site ici: www.collettecommunication.com/

 

Para mi, el arte de la fotografía es primeramente una gran experiencia metafísica y meditativa. El cielo tiene un camino: El camino más brillante. Temprano en la mañana, cada día, yo sigo la luz caminando por la orilla del río en mi pequeño pedazo de planeta. Tengo un tiempo tremendo y dejo que mis sentimientos salgan. No tomo con los ojos, tomo con el corazón. Yo me convierto en el río. Profesionalmente, soy un diseñador gráfico y un consultor en mercadotecnía y comunicaciones!

Denis, your photos are amazing: the more I see the more I love them. It took me some time to "get into it", but now I'm looking so much forward to every new one you show us. That's a great gift you give us, and I thank you for that. I'm sure you will give me lots of more "WOW-moments" in the future:-)

Denis paints with a lens. His art is fresh, and he bends light in ways few people have seen before. I love the vibrancy of his work, and am grateful that he shares his artistry on Flickr.

simply one of the best!

I have seen and immensely enjoyed the images of Denis. I have always observed that he looks beyond the apparent and tries to find an inner coherence and then put it down in fine and delicate colours.

I have seen and immensely enjoyed the images of Denis. I have always observed that he looks beyond the apparent and tries to find an inner coherence and then put it down in fine and delicate colours. As the urge flows, he is entitled to call it a river. We can also, thanks to his vision, take a dip in that holy river, which, for most of us in India,is a sacred act.

Denis' photo stream opens up like a fairytale in a mystic world. All of his images show a high sense of understanding and love for the beauty of his wide range of interest, of nature and of the things that count for him, such as art and philosophy in connection to the country he lives in. His compositions are outstanding as he intends to capture the moment and the impression nature has on him. He understands his photographic work as philosophical art and he lets us participate in this great process. Technically perfect Denis knows about the secrets of photography and applies them accordingly also using special techniques. Whenever I see one of his photos I am deeply touched! Denis is friendly and social and always comments on other people's photos. He is one of my best friends in the Flickr community. I am proud to know him and I can only recommend a stroll through his great photo stream and so get to know a bit of his paradise and share the visions when he communicates with his „wild river“.

Denise , you are true Master of Impressionistic images. We may not share the same vision but I have so much respect .... This reminds me Barcelona ... Gaudi didn’t pay for the construction but someone else. Eusebio Güell became a 'Mediciesque' patron to architect. For me he is unsung hero. Reportedly on one occasion Gaudí said to Güell, “Sometimes I think we are the only people who like this architecture“ Güell replied “ don't like your architecture, I respect it“ ... but with one exception - I do like your images Respect !!!

Dear Denis, I've been enjoying your images almost on a daily basis for close to two years now. I can no longer absorb your light anymore without verbalizing my appreciation for your dedicated work. As water often reflects back the visions of this world, you have learned to communicate with your "wild river" and translate its messages to us. Your "wild river" is indeed wild when seen through your eyes. With everyone of your creation you prove beyond any doubt that seeing with the mind's eye is within the human reach. In my humble opinion, you are a light scientist and your creations demonstrate your keen ability and mastering in the art of seeing. Thank you for sharing your deep passion, we all benefit from it. You are another brilliant star in the Milkyway!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about how you create your photography. Your reflections photos are mind-bending... I could not help wondering - are these gorgeous reflections never seen before or are they more a product of art or Photoshop? But, it seems that you have captured some of the innermost secrets of the interaction between the light that comes from the heavens and your wild river... Keep up the inspiring work... I think that when one meditatively and joyously follows one's heart when doing photography (or perhaps any art) that one can be intuitively guided to create truly great work. You will be an inspiration for that goal...
