The landscape photography is one of the classic themes of creativity in images. The landscapes have not only enthused the great painters, but also the greatest photographers.
With the landscapes completely fabricated by Didier Massard, and those captured on the world's roads by Tim HALL, this exhibition puts face to face a French photographer and a British photographer. Each chose an opposite way to satisfy the same thirst for the infinite, the elsewhere, the same desire to capture a magical moment, to share his emotion, facing the majesty of the mountain, the magic of light on the sea, or the nobility of a solitary tree.
- Didier Massard was born in Paris in 1953. During a solitary and dreamy childhood he fed on readings of imagination and adventure such as Jules Verne and drank at the source of history of painting. This has naturally led him to choose, as Joseph de Maistre in litterature, performing inside travels.
« By constructing and photographing dioramas in workshop I make my imaginary journeys on the border of the false and the true, between reality and dream, and vice versa. »
- Tim HALL was born in London in 1966. His love of nature led him to travel and to propose looking at the world through the lens of his camera. He stands in the tradition of adventure travelers of the nineteenth century and, more recently, photographers of National Geographic.
« The feeling of freedom and exhilaration I experience when I escape from London is immeasurable . »
