Works of Art that Appeal to the Imagination
Our art photography collections "Around the mind" appeal to the imagination. These photographic works appeal to the senses of the person who will look at them. By creating our art photographs, we give an artistic and contemplative interpretation of the wonders of nature that we observe. Our photography is the humble servant of our imagination.
But the imagination is very subjective. It depends on each person. It belongs to the singularity of the personal history of each. Our goal is to allow you to represent the world with the help of our works and to give it meaning.
Through our collections of art photographs, we hope to prime the images crossing the viewer's mind. We want to suggest emotions specific to each image before the viewer can think within the boundaries of language. We know that everyone has a unique interpretation of nature, and we want our audience to have an interpretation that is related to their own experiences, thoughts, and personal singularities.
The human being has this extraordinary ability to extrapolate, interpret, and give a personal judgment to the images he sees. This is called an anthropological reading of the imaginary. We created these photographic works for this purpose.
Nature as a Vector of Interpretation
We are passionate about the wonders of nature, which is present everywhere around us. One must learn to seek beauty’s appearance, for it simply appears when one opens a door or a window. Over the past many years, we have learned to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.
We strive to give a dreamlike interpretation of nature with scenes where the atmospheres are ethereal, and the compositions are pure. Our work, as professional photographers, is inspired by the wonders of nature. We want to discover, show, and testify to the beauty of the subjects by uniquely photographing evanescent moments that we can share with as many people as possible. This is how we define our artistic vision and our photographic approach.
Nature is a unique object of our creations, whether it involves landscapes or seascapes; animals living on land or in the water. Our pictures always show reality; however, out interpretations may vary according to framing the scene through the viewfinder, or according to processing the photos through computer software. Our goal is to encourage our audience to dream.
In each shot, we are freezing a certain moment in time, preserving it from a vast spacious landscape onto a thin medium, such as paper. Once this moment has passed, everything has changed. Nevertheless, our artistic approach has captured that single moment into a timeless piece of work.
Writing with Light to Create Evocative Statements
Over our many years of creating photographs, we have learned to write with natural and artificial light. This is one of the founding elements of our approach. The light is as important as the setting because it will provoke the emotive suggestions and the anthropomorphic character of our works. We always take great care in choosing our scenes and the points of view.
Light is present everywhere in life. Everyone talks about it, but to paint with light requires vast experience and patient effort. Our job is to create unique photographic works that customers will hang in their home, office, or showroom.
The emotions one feels when looking at our art photographs are a result of our artistic work and perspective.
What we are looking for is simply to help you, our viewers, to dream. We want to provoke your imagination by wielding light as our paintbrush.
Collections are Available in Both Styles
The "Around the World" art collections are available in two styles: "Shades of Black and White" and "Lights and Colors".
Each piece of art is numbered, signed, and comes with its certificate of authenticity. The creation of the media is carried out with particular care by us. We incorporate a and meticulous treatment to deliver high quality works to our customers.
Isabelle and Amar Guillen are two photographers specializing in underwater, wildlife, and landscape photography. In 1987, their photographic adventure began while they both prepared for a degree in computer engineering. The visual beauty offered by the sumptuous surrounding landscapes and the wildlife held within began (and continues) to be their source of inspiration. This has led them to entirely devote themselves to a professional photographic career, allowing them to share their contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature. For the last fifteen years, they have photographed both the animals and their terrestrial and underwater natural landscapes. Their photographic scenes are animated by the infinite mysteries hidden in nature.
Through their photographic gaze of nature, they strive to highlight the importance of its conservation. Isabelle and Amar live and exhibit between France and the United States, both of which supply wildlife, landscapes, and cultures, providing inspiration for the Guillen's work. Isabelle and Amar have published several books including "Lights and Colors of the Charente-Maritime Coast", "Reflections of Haute-Saintonge", and "The Secrets of Underwater Photography ".
