I have been photographing gardens for almost thirty years. Emotions and connection to larger reality is something that I aspire to in my photographs, and I hope you might be moved, guided by your intuition and creative spirit to discover and nurture this special link. My pictures represent the identity of man and natural world as unified oneness.
In a world where everything moves at lightning speed, I would like the viewer to pause for a moment to contemplate the power of a single still image. My photographs are best enjoyed the same way they were made — in stillness.
WHY I LOVE IT, by Aurélie
I’ve worked with Andre a few times on his advertising shoots. His love for photography runs deep, and his technical mastery is obvious to anyone who works with him. But what I loved the most was how intimate his images are.
While carefully constructed, the photographs are not stiff or precious. A little imperfection, a little unruliness are welcome. Where another photographer would make sure everything is perfectly aligned and stylized, Andre embraces and celebrates the unexpected. It brings life to his images — that’s what I love about his work!
