About Philippe Bourseiller

Philippe Bourseiller navigates the wonders of the natural world with a rich photographic sensibility. His work has explored the interaction of nature with humanity, and the nuanced manner in which each impacts the other, as well as returning repeatedly to the subject of active volcanoes. “These landscapes are constantly changing and photography is the best way to follow their changes and better understand their upheavals and the permanent adaptation of the people who live there,” he has said. Boursellier’s photographic journeys require expertise not just as an artist but also as a mountaineer and a climber; he’s often exposed to extreme conditions, and enduring these situations constitutes another element of his practice.
