In 2002 Alexandre Deschaumes began to evaporate somewhat into the autumn forests and took up photography, with no particular goal in mind. A sort of inner call, an experimental catharsis in response to a strange melancholy.
It is also a complement of expression pleasantly linked to his passion for music (composition, improvisation). He learns alone, his gaze develops little by little ... Over the course of his wanderings. In 2009 he began to offer photo workshops and conferences on the dreamlike and evocative vision of nature. It is not only the visible reality that inspires him. It is by giving it an interpretation, particularly personal and emotional, that we will begin to be able to magnify this scene. And this includes the invocation of unspeakable energies ... Of all things, it is the atmosphere that guides him ... Always.
His influences are multiple: Ansel Adams, Vincent Munier ... But also H.P Lovecraft, JRR Tolkien, Elend, Dead Can Dance, William Turner, Lionel Wibault, Caspar David Friedrich, Albert Bierstadt. 2011 is marked by the meeting with the director Mathieu Le Lay. One year of filming and the alchemy of their two gazes thus giving birth to the film - intimate documentary "The quest for inspiration", winning several awards and broadcast on Montagne TV, Ushuaïa TV, TV5 monde ..
Inspiration must remain the foremost thing, beauty allows uplifting of the spirit, and forever inspires the desire to reach the ethereal spheres.
