Primarily, Art Photographs
Our "Around the World" photography collections are primarily artistic photographs. They reflect our photographic approach and our artistic vision. These photographs are an interpretation of the wonders of nature that we see through the lens of our camera. Even if we show geographical places, terrestrial animal species, or underwater animal species, we recreate a universe from our own perspective – a universe solely belonging to us.
We try to show our emotions, our feelings, and our state of being through pure scenes full of peace. These photographs are an invitation to introspection, to mindfully dwell on the wonders of nature.
We take great care in managing light, detail, structure, texture, composition, and framing to create an aesthetic piece of art.
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.
An Invitation to Dream and Discover the Wonders of Nature
We created these art photographs to help you, our viewers, to dream; we wish to help you escape the monotony of daily life through the contemplation of our works. These photos are a small window into the fascinating wonders of nature that surround us.
We always strive to show scenes with unique and evanescent moments. The collections "Around the World" are a testimony to the fact that we must conserve and preserve our terrestrial and underwater nature. However, this naturalistic aspect is approached in a strictly artistic form.
Some of our photos show known places or known animal species. But our artistic purpose exists as a testimony to the beauty that is everywhere, even in those subjects considered to be ordinary. We always strive to show unknown facets of banal scenes. We believe that opinions and perspective lie within the photographer's eye and in his way of managing elements that are at his disposal; such as light, shadows, and matter. For us, the exceptional is secondary when creating an art photography. An exceptional scene is only interesting if it is highlighted artistically in the photograph. If the purpose of the scene is to be documentary or descriptive, it has no emotional interest. Such a work will not evoke dreams. It will not open that little door into the imaginary world, which allows the viewer to escape.
Even if these collections are somewhat descriptive, we try to add fundamental elements such as the choice of light or points of view to encourage our viewers to dream.
Photographic Treasures are Often Found in Our Garden
As we have said, the exceptional, the incredible, and the extraordinary is only interesting if the scenes show an artistic interest. The wonders of nature are often in our personal home garden or waiting patiently on our doorstep. Most people often forget to remain observant in daily life. We are not trying to search in lost areas for ancient wonders, but we are searching for hidden treasures in ordinary places we encounter on a daily basis. We have learned to watch, to evaluate, and to discover that the eye can be educated. Of course, it takes a long time to see and understand that nature is beautiful everywhere, nevertheless we have arrived at such a stage.
Our "Around the World" art photographs show exotic landscapes or animals that may be very different from the ordinary animals you live alongside. Most of the time, we focus on the commonplace and the banal.
All our know-how and sensitivity are intended to show that the wonders of nature are everywhere. Through our photographic works, we simply try to surprise and to awaken the spirit of our viewers through our artistic eye.
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 ".
