La prolongation du bonheur

Autoportraits de famille #2

“Photographing is for me an act of love and a behavior in the face of time that is intimately linked to my meeting with Colette in 1991. I photograph by desire and need by choosing the moments that I want to keep the memory, taking the images of our lives to with an amateur autofocus camera in the palm of my hand Can not look through the viewfinder, I often frame with the uncertain feeling of cutting the space in the right place.Sure of the moment I’m less of the moment: I then have to take several shots of the same scene.The fact of framing without looking and never deciding where the focus will be made is one of the most magical constants of photography. Chance mingles with the desire and the pleasure of the moment which must be kept track of.
Photography is certainly the art that can be said to be the most tempting. The brevity of the shot making the immediate repetition of the photographic act always possible often plunges the photographer into doubt and uncertainty as to the image obtained. Try again, always and again. The doubt will leave only once the film developed, facing the moments seized successful. Looking at my contact sheets gives me a feeling of total rediscovery of the moment lived, and at that moment I see very precisely what I perceived more than actually seen. “G.G.

Plossu Bernard, born in South Vietnam in 1945, he grew up surrounded by photographs of the desert taken by his father when he went skiing on the dunes of the Sahara in 1937 with Roger Frisian-Roche. Modesty, sensuality, emotion, joy, here is what is the “sap” that already permeate the images of the self that landed in Mexico in 1965 and 1967 to join his grandparents.
