LIGHT ON: “Over Exposed afternoon” by Bernard André
The photographic universe of Bernard André is contemplative, it is made of fantasies, dreams and memories. André has a strong taste for B&W, for minimalism, for lines, curves, textures, structures, shadows and dark images with a classic approach.
His work is an attempt to unify, without contradictions, classicism and modernity, when one is no longer the antinomy of the other but rather the result of the fusion sublimated, where only the aesthetics matter.
André’s “Over Exposed afternoon” series depict a bright summer afternoon on a beach. “Alone, with friend or family, whether you choose to sit and enjoy the infinite horizon or to take long walks along the shores and the soft waves you dive into an ocean of memories. Seagulls, sandcastles, deadwood, empty shells, white crunching and crispy sable. A time of innocence.”
André explores the sensuality of light, creating and capturing his own definition to share a personal vision of the world that surrounds him. He cares a lot about emptiness, about the silence of it, about its power and energy. A quiet stillness. A calm, silent quest for the absolute that we are invited to join.
