"Lights and colors of the coast of Charente-Maritime, France” — collection of fine art photographs.
The coast of the Charente-Maritime stretches from the Gironde estuary in the south to the Atlantic Ocean to the north. Several major rivers like the river Seudre flow into. Charente-Maritime also has micro climates that cause sudden changes in light. It is an ideal context for photographers creating landscape photographs. This collection presents fine art photographs of an area that we often say that it is unique in the world.

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 ".
