The sea is calm and last night celestial’s spectacle of the northern lights has given way to the bright sun of a peaceful day on the infinite waters of the North Sea.
My head and my memory cards are filled with images, and it is from the boat that brings me back from the wild land of Iceland that I come to share my latest photographic news.
BOOK « MAJESTICS »
In my previous Newsletter, I announced the release this autumn of my book MAJESTICS and the film of the same name.
Today, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to the vernissage of the book which will be held Friday October 30 from 17:30 at the Baobab bookshop in Martigny (Switzerland). This evening will also mark the first screening of the film MAJESTICS, and I will be available to autograph your copy of the book.
Other book signing sessions are planned in Switzerland and France. Click here for the full list of dates.
The book will be available on my website here and in bookstores around Switzerland from October 16th.
This book was produced with the support of Pro Natura, an important environmental protection association in Switzerland. I wish to express my deepest thanks to them here.

Its wild and amazing landscape makes us all dream. I took a few weeks of intermission between the end of the production of my book MAJESTICS and its actual release in the bookstores to go and recharge my batteries in the vast and spectacular landscape of this unique land. This country did not fail to amaze me. I had long dreamt for the chance to capture the magic of the Northern Lights. Nature did not fail to offer me this pleasure. During this trip, a small note of concern has nonetheless become clearly apparent to me. Behind all this blinding beauty, the mass tourism currently in full bloom hides an obvious problem for the preservation of the country’s wild and fragile environment. But that's another debate. A Facebook post will soon present some of my best images of this trip. Stay tuned.
I wish you all a beautiful autumn and of course the best of lights.
