"A painting is not a picture of an experience, it is an experience." – Mark Rothko

I deeply think we should all do with a bit more of Rothko’s principles in our way to photograph: insisting on the primacy of raw emotion, to push the boundaries of form and color to make photos appear as "painting-like" as possible.

Series of photos taken with my head and my camera pointing directly downwards, on board an ULM.
