“… this way of completely disappearing into what I’m looking at, to no longer feel the need to interpret, but, purely, to look.” — Wim Wenders.

Born in France, photography became a passion for Christophe Cassegrain as early as 1986, in particular, shots of natural landscapes. He is interested in the shapes, the volumes, and the substances that make up a landscape. He uses a 4×5 inch chamber to photograph nature just as it is – a vision of nature which is free from all human, social or cultural elements, and based essentially on a choice of subject which will express the purity of line, and render the presence of the substance and the light, in an attempt to procure for the spectator an emotion as intense as he experiences while he is taking the photograph.
