Lights and colors of Haute Saintonge, Charente Maritime, France. November/December 2012.
During the months of November and December 2012, we are going to take the latest photos for our entitled "Light and colors of Haute Saintonge, Charente Maritime." Associated with this exhibition, a book with 40 photographs will be published. Several themes have guided our approach: the seasons, the different landscapes of Haute Saintonge, the Gironde estuary, the fields, therivers that irrigate the region and the medieval towns. All photos also show the soft and dim lights that radiate the top of the mountains where are built old castles and windmills. We start this project in July 2012 when the order was placed by the community of towns pf the Haute Saintonge. We did nott know the area. It took time to understand and grasp the pulse and respiration of soil and houses built Saintonge stones. We finally understand. We discovered many hidden treasures. These photos follow our photographic vision based on the research of lights and colors to highlight the subjects.
