28-11-2014 : Rencontre photographique (Belgium)

The confrontation of two visions capturing moments of life with a confirmed aesthetic sensibility.

Pierre Lorand , 45 years old , from Binche is radio animator ; he  is the voice of  "The Morning Club" and "Men at Work"  from 1 April 2004 on Classic 21 , the RTBF's Pop & Rock Radio (public radio). In addition to his love for sound, photography is his second passion, when capturing every moment of the life  in  the places he visits. 

Aurore Delsoir , born in 1978 in Tournai, pursuing classical philology before entering the pharmaceutical industry. With a special sensitivity , she quickly realizes that she needs to speak more broadly than in the business world. Along with writing, she develops a photographic work where vision plays with man as the main topic of the moment and its paradoxes. 

Dates: From Friday, November 28, 2014 to Sunday, January 18, 2015

Place: 40 rue Middelbourg 1170 Bruxelles

15-11-2014 : "Passion, foudre et véraison" (Belgium)

When Pascale Brunin - Guillier asked me to dress the walls of her wine cellar with my pictures for its yearly open days, I accepted without any hesitation. But the subject for the exhibition had to turn around wine. 

I suggested the idea of ​​a photo shooting during the harvest, even if the dates were very close to those open days. It remained to find an vineyard that would be willing to meet me and let me wander around with my camera and my ignorance of the wine thing. Mr Trocard (Lartigues-de-Lussac ) was the first volunteer. 

I wanted to thank Pascale, Mr Trocard and there teams for having given to me the possibility to live this wonderful experience. 

"Passion, Foudre et Véraison" takes place during the opening days of the Brunin-Guillier wine cellar. 

From 11.00 to 19.00 on November 15th and 16th, from 11.00 to 17.00 on November 17th.

31-10-2014 : "Les fleurs du mâle" (Belgium)

I met Laurent Sicard Laurent Sicard, French creator of the No Clone trademark , in the context of a research on gesture. Intrigued by this appellation claiming Individuality and freedom, I began exploring his world and his personality by his creative work. In his permanent search for perfection, Laurent reveals his wholeness when mixing genders and codes. 

The reportage born from this "face-à-face" follows the designer when preparing a fashion competition. From the roots of his gesture to the petals of his work, twelve shots are forming a bunch of " male flowers".

14-06-2014 : An "artist" at work : Marion Fillancq (France)

Everything starts with stone. Rough, dark, opaque stone. This stone becomes under the blows brightness, reflections, light. Marion Fillancq hangs patiently and carefully to a hawthorn bush its obsidian blades, cut like a flint, flamed like Antique Greek ceramics. The work of this multiple artist crystallizes the nature of human evolution: birth of the beautiful through the useful.

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Marion is one of the designers. I met for my project, "A designer at work".

24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Sandra Bernard and "Pirouette-Cacahuète" (France)

Fantasy is the keyword of Sandra Bernard'universe : flowers, stripes, flashy colors and ribbons, lace and fabrics highlight the atmosphere of the workshop beside a hieratic cat and hilarious babies. It's the area of sweet madness…

24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Sylvain Bègue and Resinandwood (France)

One might think that Sylvain Bègue is one of the heroes of the legend Lavondyss because his universe mixes fantasy and wonderful. This man who spends time in disassemblering clocks plays with time and sometimes space!

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Sylvain is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".

24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Emmanuelle Jollain and "Manuberlue" (France)

In Emmanuelle Jollain's workshop, it is like in the French song, "you can find everything". No salad, no soap, but playmobils, beer caps, ties and tons of buttons ... all turned and passed either under the hammer or a clip or the sewing machine ... A "recycling" design full of fun, colors and always surprising.

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Emanuelle is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".

25-05-2014 : A designer at work : Hervé Michas and NOO Factory (France)

Hervé Michas creates constantly. Either the material he will use for his piece of work or the mold that will host it or the lighting that will highlight it or even the tool that will allow him to get it in shape... He said that he is designer, modeler, molder, engineer, accountant, commercial, labor, maintenance worker ... and a little bit artist ... You can not prove he is not right!

24-05-2014 : A designer at work : Théophile Caille and "Théo et le Verre" (France)

Once Theophile Caille works, glass becomes instantly liquid or steel, the red colour we perceived some minutes before is now bright white, water is worthy of acid and a shiny jewel takes place of a dark drop. Perhaps the glasses Theo wears to support the look of the melt allow him to control this changing world, like a Prometheus in the Modern Times...

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Théophile is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".

25-05-2014 : A designer at work : Abdelrhani Azzab and Berga'sens (France)

"Do you want a mint tea? You know, it's gonna take some time if you want to attend all stages of soap development" Abdlerhani Azzab like doing things, and moreover doing theses well. He makes his own soap through a long, precise and nearly scientific process in his monastic-like but divinely perfumed workshop. "But Abdelrhani, if I understand you correctly, making soap allows you to think, right?" His smile let me think that I spoke the truth …

Contacted by the "Maison des créateurs", an association of artists and designers who organizes exhibitions of local artists and designers in Nancy, I decided to explore their specific and personal universes with my camera. Abdelrhani is one of the designers I met for my project, "A designer at work".

25-05-2014 : A designer at work : Sofi Milli, Milliner (France)

Her workshop looks like a maid room under the roof of a large house of the early 20th. Small step back in time... Sofi Milli is a milliner. During my visit, she was ironing a straw hat whit what my grandmother could call a "leg-wet" and decorating her creations with ribbons, charms, cameos and other fantasies, a dice on her finger. Some childhood memories were back in my head…

24-05-2014 : A designer at work ; Gaëlle Chauveaux and "Graine de Carrosse" (France)

"And what do you do exactly?" "I'm a word seller".

Coming from the mouth of a great dreaming person, everything was said. But I wanted to see in order to know more.

In her letterpress workshop of three square meters, with an extraordinary passion and a permanent enthusiasm, Gaëlle creates words, phrases and things that makes your heart beat. This energetic and young woman admits she is never tired of magic & happiness the words can bring, if they are well used. She says that people we love deserve more than a "pré-pensé" gift. That was the reason why she created her own words store.

24-05-2014 : A designer at work - Emilie Michelet and Exergo (France)

"I had my two little girls I wanted to dress on my own way and also this part of our house that I kept for myself." It's there, in two small rooms that Emilie designs its own line of children's clothing, Exergo. And while she tells me about her collections and fashion shows, Emilie creates a small flower made of pins on her wrist…

11-04-2014 : Covering the Charlotte Perrin's exhibition in Nancy (France)

Charlotte Perrin was born in 1977 in Paris from a family of artists ; she studied communication at the Fine Arts Schools of Caen and Nantes. Based in Nancy, she decided some years ago to devote herself to painting. From April 11th to April 13th, the fantastic "Pavillon" situated in Rue Poirel welcomed Charlotte for an exhibition of her beautiful paintings on the theme of the streets and neighborhoods of Nancy. I had the pleasure to cover this exceptional event and to meet this very talented artist.
