Photographs

Biologist and geologist by training, naturalist and passionate photographer, I travel season after season the Alps, the Jura and the Bugey, or various more distant regions, in search of new images of wild forests, lakes and mountains, fauna and flora, still preserved from the accelerated trivialization of the environment and landscapes ... Photographing is not just recording and reproducing reality, it is also, in my opinion, sublimating and interpreting it in an artistic way , by a framing and a focal that stimulates the imagination and surprises the eye. So I especially use the very wide angle (12 mm) which magnifies the foreground, and makes the image breathe, or the long focal lengths (200 mm and more) which allow to isolate a remarkable detail and to focus attention . I mainly work with full format Nikon equipment. BIOSPHOTO agency has sold most of my images since 1991 ...

I published with Glénat "Les Métamorphoses de l'Alpe", a book which illustrates the perpetual transformations of mountain landscapes during the seasons (Grand Prix of the mountain picture book of Passy). Several times finalist in Asferico, WPY, etc.

I expose my portfolios on my website: jean-philippe-delobelle.com
