Ever since photography was invented (I mean 24x36 frames, rolls
of film and light cameras), "humanist" photographers have
travelled the world over to collect snapshots and report to people
about other people's lives.
I came across Edouard Boubat's pictures in the mid-sixties, and
especially remember the portrait of a young Swedish girl, sleeping.
In one detail (the imprint left by a crumpled sheet on her naked
breast), Edouard had managed to capture the intimacy of this end
of a night. Indeed the art of this great master wasn't all graphic
simplicity and sobre compositions: he could also be a sincere witness.
The sincerity of his encounters was a guarantee of the sincerity
of his testimony.
It was a revelation to me. From then on, I could not consider a
different approach to photography
And for nearly 40 years,
solely inspired by this other world and the discovery of new horizons
and of those living there, I have been driven by the same passion
and relentlessly followed the path of the "rencontreur-photographe",
a photographer open to encounters.
