Photo Series: Monkeys in Black and White

The animal world, especially monkeys, has always held a great fascination for us. We like to observe and contemplate them, and to understand how they live and how they organize their communities.

When we photograph their behaviors, we always try to pick the behaviors that seem most human. For example, we like to record a gaze, facial expression or a particular gesture which looks especially human. We like to anthropomorphize them.

Another aspect of monkeys that we like is their hair. We always try to photograph them with their backs to the light to show their iridescent hairs, or at a three-quarter turn for unique reflections that enable us to show the volume of their hair.

Over time, monkeys have become a source of inspiration for us.

We chose to use black and white to highlight these beautiful animals and to avoid losing anything of their natural beauty.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.

We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.

We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.

We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
