About the “Volcanoes, legends ans stories” series of photographs :
This series of photographs is part of an exhibition which was held at MAP Publika in Kuala Lumpur, from October 23th - 30th, 2017.
This is a celebration of the beauty of one of the last frontiers on Earth, out of reach to most of mankind: volcanoes. These pictures are an explosion of colours from Indonesia, Ethiopia, Vanuatu, and Hawaii, which I took between 2011 and 2017. During this exhibition, I shared also some legends and stories of people living near these volcanoes.
These pictures are a combination of colours, patterns and perspectives, with a mix of different elements : fire, water, gases and rocks. Taking pictures of volcanoes are usually challenging: freezing temperature or extreme heat, violent winds and deadly gases, exhausting climbs and sleepless nights. My fascination drove me as close as possible until my fear and reason told me to stop.
