Antoine de Saint Exupéry, "Le Petit Prince"
"On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."
Présent en Europe et en Asie, Eric Guichaoua-Serra est un photographe français originaire de Paris.
Passionné par les gens simples et leurs vies ordinaires, ses domaines d'exploration privilégiés concernent principalement la rue et la photo documentaire.
Il considère néanmoins d'autres domaines de la photographie, comme ceux de la mode, du portrait, de la publicité, des paysages, de l'architecture et du milieu urbain, ainsi que ceux du mariage, des animaux ou de la photographie fétichiste.
"Whether it seduces you, shocks you, transports you, or disgusts you, a photo that arouses an emotion, a reaction, an agreement or a rejection, is a 'good' photo.
'Bad' photos are therefore rare, because there will always be someone somewhere for whom this photo that you find 'bad' will evoke something that escapes us."
"I like my photos to tell stories.
Its own and true story, the one I imagined, and the extended one that you will imagine.
'Telling stories' is not lying: it is opening the door to new perspectives, it is offering an alternative reality that could sometimes be the real one."
"I really like your work, both the shape and the colors.
The series made in Hong Kong is really very beautiful.
I like the rich perspectives, skilfully composed, interwoven, hollowed out, and the subtle and deep tones depending on the lighting (particularly those at night, but not only): you have a real sense of color and light (banality! but I am very sensitive to it).
The atmosphere of your photos reflects a sharp look and a a little fragile sensitivity, of great poetry. Something between the rationality of the construction and the escape through the senses. This is as true of urban landscapes as of always sensual bodies.
Congratulations also for the commission made for the dance company; we are closer to the bodies made of tense muscles (we readily imagine them suffering) and at the same time we feel like them carried in space with happiness.
Always the lightness, presence of the touch and soft evanescence) ."
"Smiles and radiant faces, expressions, even on the other side of the world, the laughter is the same, very beautiful night photo, capturing the moment, even very short, the result is really splendid, thank you very much for the nice sharing."
