“My goal in my photographic work isn’t to produce something decorative but just
to share a poetic feeling in order to emphasize imagination…” – Bruno Mercier

“In all of my photographic work, there is a certain prevailing theme which has something to do with light, movement, and atmosphere. I do love playing with rhythms, light, and lines. I often place landscape in the foreground, inside light, and compose space from the running lines. A play of light and shade when light shines in darkness. My photographs are my way to show and express some of my feelings and my personal perception of what surrounds me. Photography, for me, is not about reproducing the world. I am not really interested in making an accurate copy of what I see out there.

I really prefer the power of suggestion over description. What you can see in my photographic work goes through my own filters. OK… all the elements in my photos exist, and everybody could easily see them, but my goal is to offer an artistic interpretation and above all an emotion. I just show the elements I see, like trees and fences, for example, and use those elements as catalysts for my own imagination and hopefully for the viewer’s imagination. I’m generally attracted to places where stories can take place, where imagination can be fired. Furthermore, living in the Cotentin Peninsula (Normandy, France) provides me with opportunities to explore wonderful landscapes and seascapes…”
