Summer 2013. We present 24 fine art photographs in the exhibition hall of the Estuary Park in the town of Saint Georges de Didonne in the department of Charente-Maritime in France. The title of the exhibition is "The Charente coastline: above under." Three themes have been choosen: underwater life of the Gironde estuary, wetland landscapes of the Charente coast, migratory wetland birds. This exhibition was commissioned by the General Council of Charente-Maritime. It will be traveling in the department for 5 years.

The subtitle of this exhibition is "Lights and colors of wetlands of Charente-Maritime." We wanted to continue our work and our project started in 2012 with the exhibition "Lights and colors of the coast of Charente-Maritime." All photographs taken for this exhibition funded by the General Council of Charente-Maritime meet our global vision of photography.

This exhibition will be traveling in the department for five years. It will be shown in different art galeries. It is composed of three different themes. The first one is devoted to the underwater life of the Gironde estuary. The second theme explores the landscape of the coastal wetlands of the Charente. The third theme is dedicated to the migratory birds of the Charente coast.

This exhibition shows not only our expertise in our three photography specialties but also the richness of the biodiversity of the marine and land of the department of Charente-Maritime. A year of work was required to create all photographs. The most difficult challenge was undoubtedly the underwater photos. Indeed, diving in the Gironde estuary was very difficult and very technical because of the poor visibility and strong currents.

This exhibition is firmly focused on the beauty of nature and the wonders of the animal world. We approached from an artistic point of view with a naturalistic approach.

A year to create the 24 fine art photographs with a naturalistic approach.

You are going to enter the private world of the natural heritage of the Charente-Maritime.

The mosaic of the local landscape is the work and witness a unique ecological heritage wealth. It is also the guarantor of biodiversity and a part of typical life Charente identity.

With this advantage, the department of Charente-Maritime implemented since 1974 to preserve natural spaces. More than 2000 hectares of sensitive natural areas were acquired. They are permanently protected.

To promote this heritage and raise awareness about its protection, 14 Pôles-Nature occupying an area of ??1,152 hectares, are open to the public with entertainment. The Pôles-Nature Network, initiated in 1995 is unique in France. It is the result of discussions between the General Council, institutional partners, associations and local authorities. All are committed to a quality charter.

The meeting with the officials of the General Council in charge of poles nature leads us to the realization of a traveling fine art exhibition on the underwater world and coastal marshes of the Charente-Maritime. Our collaboration was evident as we share the same desires: to show the delicate balance between nature and people; the interdependence of the environment and the need to protect.

We have been committed to show the diversity of landscapes and whether underwater or wildlife. We wanted to sublimate lights and colors of some treasures of the Charente coast. Specialized in nature, underwater and wildlife photography, we are professional self-taught photographers based in the United States. We defined ourselves as researchers of lights and colors. These two components form the basis of our approach, on land or under water. Thus, we devote particular attention to research the details of the structures of elements that compose our pictures. As we have not met these elements, we will return to the mornings, evenings and seasons to take the right shots.

Patience and observation of the natural environment have been necessary to capture hundreds of pictures. But the nice encounters with men and women have been essential for us to open the doors of secrets to share.

Amar Guillen. Professional Artist Photographer of nature.

Amar Guillen is an artist photographer specializing in underwater, wildlife, and landscape photography. In 1987, his photographic adventure began while he 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 his source of inspiration. This has led him to entirely devote himself to a professional photographic career, allowing him to share his contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature. For the last fifteen years, he has photographed both the animals and their terrestrial and underwater natural landscapes. His photographic scenes are animated by the infinite mysteries hidden in nature.

Through his photographic gaze of nature, he strives to highlight the importance of its conservation. Amar lives and exhibits between France and the United States, both of which supply wildlife, landscapes, and cultures, providing inspiration for his work. Amar has published several books including "Lights and Colors of the Charente-Maritime Coast", "Reflections of Haute-Saintonge", and "The Secrets of Underwater Photography ".
