Jean-Paul Soujol (France) lives in Provence at the foot of Mont Ventoux. His approach to photography is a quest for creativity. In a dialogue with light, the subject becomes a sculpture, and the landscape gives birth to landscapes. He leads us to a process in which the photographer becomes a painter. The horizon is her guideline. He chooses his compositions so that the elements respond or reverse to end in abstraction. The earth becomes the sky, the sky becomes the sea.
"Photography enables me to challenge myself, to express the unchangeable fascination of human being in the sacred link between earth and heaven".
His minimalist vision drives him to think and compose square. Every photograph is a creation, rotation, motion, long exposure, filters… are all ways of detaching one's subject from its all too familiar and ordinary envelope, of removing its mask to place it in a new landscape.
