First I give the word to rob_mel about Gerard's work ! Have a nice time and enjoy :) Barbara

Eclectique, surprenante - un dialogue inépuisable entre sensibilité et la reproduction qui n'a lieu qu'une fois. Une représentation extrêmement précise de brillance.

Une surprenante collection, dont je n’étais pas au courant (due à mon absence de Flickr, ces jours derniers). Bien mérité.

Il n'y a pas de photographie abstraite. L'image puise toujours sa source dans le monde qui nous entoure. Le photographe est celui qui sait voir ce que nous ne voyons pas.

Dans certaines de ses photographies, s'y trouve un dialogue inépuisable entre formes, ombres et lumières. Gérard est magnifique. En cherchant à reconnaître, à identifier, il se prend alors à imaginer, à rêver . C'est à travers sa photographie qu'il nous emmène dans un autre monde, parfois ''complexe'', dont la définition connaît des nuances importantes selon ses différents domaines…ainsi que de la multitude d’impacts.

Gérard's world becomes a magical display of vivid perception. Through his photography, we perceive atmospheres through our emotional sensibility - a form of perception that works incredibly quickly and which us humans, evidently need. Looking at his works, we are capable of immediate appreciation of a spontaneous emotional response straight way. Most impactful and most worthy of interest, given the rewards found in the depths of their exploration, some of which are of a world, fragmented and some others, a world that offers seamless unity: a certain opposition between the three ''domains'': of 'intricacy'', ''sincerity'' and ''ingeniously conceptual'' of expression”. Gérard employs a variety of techniques and means of expression through the traditional landscape of photography.

Photography is an immediate reaction. Both the pictorial as well as illusionistic are to be found in some of the works here, and as such, are worthy of attention. There is also in his work a certain "Miksang" which in Tibetan translates as ‘Good Eye’,

By the way , an excellent title for the works presently in this gallery.

Bravo to Gérard for his works and to Barbara for bringing them to us. rob_mel

I have been thinking about your work recently, and I dwell on the poetic and vital.

I see your great and diverse range, and find this inspirational, fluid and ultimately engaging. Your work is truly inspirational in capturing the essence or life in every circumstance you find yourself in, and not limited by subject matter or style. There is always something to yearn and study, and reread at every opportunity.....

Thanks Gérard for capturing and harnessing the MAGIC + POETRY.
