To me, in many ways, photography is a journey of uncertain destination, images a starting point for the mind. An image must speak, it's all about the story, whether documenting and sharing an experience or opening doors beyond the confined boundaries of reality. Color, monochrome, shape and form, are irrelevant to me, rather what matters is meaning and emotion, it is then that photography transcends science to become art.

It is not for me to say whether any of my images achieve this nor where they take you. What I can say is that I wish to invite the viewer's mind to travel, within, to explore his or her "Imaginarium" using these photographs as a base. In that sense I am happy to be labelled a travel photographer.

Since as long as I can remember, travel has been a part of my life nourished by the the spirit of adventure and discovery. I will never be the first man on the moon, but I would like to dream that I could.

As a remedy, I decided to seek out places remote and untouched, far from civilization as we know it, be they of cultural or natural wonder. Loosing my own bearings, I feel free and, at times, privileged to be the witness of the extra-ordinary, filling me with that sense of wonder I had as a child: from the last salt caravan in the unearthly Danakil depression, to auroral lights dancing above a glacier lagoon, from sharing a morning pipe with a Himba tribeswoman, to viewing infinity on the Uyuni Salar.

Transcribing these and other vivid scenes in an image that affects you is my challenge. In many ways, I am still at the beginning of my journey and finding my way. In a sense, I hope I never do.

Whilst seeking subject and light, at times I have encountered magic, but the true gift and joy of photography is that of sight. The pursuit of photography teaches you you how to see, and as I learn, with or without a camera, there is hardly a day I do not feel rewarded.

    "Cedric, il en faut des mots pour le décrire à mes yeux : c'est un artiste avant tout, des images à couper le souffle, des histoires et des paysages hostiles qu'il apprivoise à coup de génie et d'une extrême sensibilité (couplé à un talent fou et à l'amour du voyage). C'est aussi quelqu'un qui aide à avancer, une générosité et une gentillesse qu'on ne rencontre pas souvent. Je m'arrête là, less is more."

Not only has he visited some amazing places across the globe, He has documented these places with beautiful works of art as well. His photography is an inspiration to me, as well as his travels. Keep up the fine work, and thank you for showing us such amazing places and pieces."

    "Cedric, you are my inspiration! Your images are perfect in every aspect! And besides, I envy you, because you go to the places I dream about, like Iceland; Atacama; Patagonia, etc.
    Maybe next summer, we can go together to Iceland, bike around the island, shooting! How about that?"
