Featured Exhibition: Terra Incognita by Jean-Luc Billet

by Yvette Depaepe 
Edited and published the 3rd of February 2023


This month's featured exhibition shows amazing minimal landscapes which are taking us to an unknown world or 'Terra Incognita' by Jean-Luc Billet

Jean-Luc quotes: "Photography, this vain and indispensable attempt to stop time, to infuse the image with a little of our anxiety and wonder. A way to resist by putting into it the best of ourselves. And, from the shooting to the final print, to make sure that these images restore a little of the beauty of the origins.

To establish this dialogue is to be nourished by the essential. It is not only the eye and the mind that are solicited but the whole body. We then have the feeling of accompanying the movement of the world, of being accepted in sacred territories, our photographs celebrate this privilege.

We come back with a precious gift and the hope of having been able to put into the shooting all the components of the lived experience; they can be deployed again during post-production, whether they are visual, sensory or emotional.

In the hope of leaving a trace, we slip our images into the uninterrupted digital flow, take part in exhibitions, sometimes publish books. These ephemeral satisfactions never satisfy the desire within us, the thirst for new creations that constantly calls us. Even if we know that one day they will fade away."


This featured exhibition is exposed on the opening page  / Gallery of our site since during the whole month of February 2023.
