Islande 2011 (© M. Carriere).

The act of photography is a pretext. On the pretext of taking pictures, I can travel around the region I live in or around the countries I visit. And I can take the time to look. Landscape photography needs patience and curiosity, patience to wait for the light, and curiosity to look at those things and walk those tracks I would not consider without the camera. The pictures are then memories of those places, but also of those priceless moments and of the people who shared them with me.

Nature and mountain photography are my main centers of interest (of attraction?). I have been collecting such pictures on my own since 2005, and within a group of photographers and friends called Diverticimes since 2010.

Enjoy the visit!
