‘If I am so fond of photography, aside from the emotional and formal pleasures, it must be the desire to make the ephemeral last, to salvage the moment’
Pierre Jamet is a French photographer and singer, born 24 May 1910 in Saint-Quentin (Aisne) and died on August 17, 2000 in Belle-Ile-en-Mer (Morbihan). He is a representative of humanist photography, and was a member of the vocal quartet Les Quatre Barbus.
Witnessed a carefree time he had the time of his life. Who is this "gouteuse" playing with autumn waves in this enchanting photograph taken at his beloved Belle Ile en Mer island (France) ?

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
