The world of Art is complex and occupies an important place within our society. It is the vocation of the artist to open our minds by allowing us to see, hear, and understand our surroundings, but this role is sometimes taken for granted. The responsibility lies with every individual within a society to use the insight that Art provides and become attuned to the pulse of his or her culture. There are many people in the world who feel within themselves that beautiful drive to create and offer a new perspective, a fresh and exciting angle from which to contemplate life. Some are not as widely known as others, but the significance of their work is not diminished.
For the past 20 years now, as a filmmaker, director, journalist or photographer for various institutions around the world, during my travels, I recorded what I saw and heard, and in these multimedia journals, I always try to see beyond what is visible because a camera gives you the opportunity to get closer, to see what the human eye does not perceive. Over the years, I stocked and archived digital content from all over the world, and when the Internet revolution arised, i thought it our my duty to share some of these productions with the www.
In this web site, you will find artists who have not necessarily achieved great fame, but people admirable for their work dedication and excellence in the Arts, whether it’s music, painting, sculpture, photography, filmaking, poetry, or wine making. Most of the films and photographs fall outside of what might be considered “mainstream,” but each of them reveals a strong story, a very different human being that presents a piece to the vast puzzle of life.
Bon Voyage !
