There is a few cities in my country with long a straight avenue. The lines from the city and the car lights create patterns, long exposure and a cool spot for the set-up. Shot at Numa-Droz Avenue, La Chaux-De-Fonds, Suisse
A place where political people take decisions. It’s the heart of our political system. A very strict and symmetric picture, like the subject. The Swiss Parliament building. Shot in Bern, Switzerland.
Two years after my first experience (see Racing with the Sun) at the “Patrouille des Glaciers“, I went to see the race again. Leaving Lausanne during the night, I went to Arolla them Verbier. A white night to follow the race. Great times. This time the race was not stopped and I could shoot the climbing of the top of the Col de Riedmatten (2919 m) with a long exposure setting.
I prefer to spend my time in beautiful landscapes instead of a cave. During my work, I have to spend one day in a tunnel. I took the opportunity to bring my gears with me and try to shoot something. Hopefully, there was this train bringing some lights into the darkness. Shoot in tunnel of Simplon, Valais, Switzerland.
During the end of this year, the city of Lausanne set up a light festival. This piece of art is called “Flux Cocoon”, it is based on LED wrapped around the Grand Pont. Around the city you can enjoy ten installations and discover the city with another point of view. Shot in Place de l’Europe, Lausanne, Switzerland.
Another experiment in long exposure night shot with a friend of mine. Unfortunately it was not a starry night. Nevertheless, this standing structure in the border of the lake catch our attention. Shot in the Parc du Sélaz, St-Prex, Switzerland.
There is always a special atmosphere during the night. After a few beers, a friend of mine and I went this saturday night in St-Sulpice, Vaud, Switzerland. We try to catch this unique ambiance. Comparing to my last picture, it was more difficult to catch the stars, to much light from the other side of lake. It was a good experience anyway.
Last saturday, my father and I woke at 2 in the morning in Arolla to climb up the Col de Riedmatten (2919 m) in Valais, Switzerland. My goal was to capture this unique atmosphere. The “Patrouille des Glaciers“, a famous race across the Alps toke place during this night. The light path is made by the head lamps of the racers.
This picture is my tribute to the work of Hilla and Bernd Becher. Shot during a cold (-3 °C !) night in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Same place than the previous post, but at night, I definitely like this place. We climbed up the mountain at the end of day to enjoy a cold sunset and share bottle of white wine. Shot from the top of Dent de Vaulion (1482m), Vaud, Switzerland.
