Today we continue our publication of photography with four photos by Fabrice B. Poussin. His photography last appeared inApril in our journal. Fabrice describes his photos below.
Open Space. I was stunned by not only the high peaks of Colorado, but also what appear to be its Southern deserts. I am fascinated by the Western American open space and the fact it invites the explorer to continue on his/her journey, however harsh it may be.
Memories. Yellowstone Park. In this sometimes hostile land, it is amazing to find death (the tree) but also so much life, as represented here by the surrounding flowers. Memories of times past and enjoyment of a present are what transpire here.
Home. Yellowstone Lake. It is the serenity of the perfect line upon the lake that attracted me to this scene. In the background the snowy peak upon the perfect surface of the lake epitomizes ideal natural beauty.
Alone. Southern Utah. This image offers the irony of the extremely arid landscape contrasted with the awesome power of nature, as well as one’s willingness to live, survive, and transplant oneself anywhere on earth. Comfort can be found here when the crush of society becomes overwhelming.
