Guest book of the exhibition "Lights and colors of the coast of Charente-Maritime"
We scanned few pages of the guest book that accompanied our exhibition "Lights and colors of the coast of Charente Maritime." These are the best pages and most commented. During these 10 weeks of exhibition, we hosted about 5000 people. This exhibition was a huge local event. We worked hard, talked a lot. We had a lot of uncertainties and doubts that were quickly swept by the warm welcome of the cities that welcomed us.

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 ".
