Not far from where I lived in Stow, Massachusetts, just outside of town, I came across a very typical New England white cedar swamp, and was immediately drawn to it's unique beauty.
Barely noticeable from the road, and not easily accessible, one has work hard to actually wade through it, however once inside it feels like you are on a completely different planet. In the swamp you lose the sense of seasons and the surreal landscape tricks your eyes into appearing infinite, dark, deep and dead. Far from being dead, as you tread carefully through the tea-coloured water, you start to notice all the life in these unique ecosystem.
With my camera I tried to capture that life and those emotions and colours, enhancing some of these photos to bring out the surreal beauty of this incredible place.
I was born in Paris, which makes me French. I grew up in a family of painters, sculptors and art merchants. In France and Italy, I studied under the artists Gérard Ambroselli, and Antonietta Tuti where I received strong influences in impressionism and abstractionism. I was educated in Italy, France, England and finally in the United States where I lived for over twenty years. I have shown my work in the United States, South America and in Europe. For the past fifteen years in Switzerland, and now back in the United States, I have lived parallel lives, one focused on high-tech and the other focused on art, and until very recently never mixing the two. In this world of right-brain and left-brain I have found the stimulus for creating my paintings and my photographs. All of my work is based on abstract shapes and emotions I see and feel. Nature is my biggest driver.
