The artwork

Nazaré is a small Portuguese village not far from which the biggest waves in the whole world crash during winter storms. I took this photo of an oil sea on a beautiful December day when the sun was high in the sky and the gentle sea breeze carried the scent of grilled fish with it.

The artist

“Between the ocean and the mountains, that’s where I draw my inspiration, where I find my whole universe.”
Originally from a small village in the Médoc, it is on the Basque coast that Alex Peneau decided to settle down and create his production company. Film director, author and photographer, Alex has a particular approach to his work.
“I got interested in images later in life, after having spent my youth making music. For me, an image is composed like a piece of music: it is above all the expression of a feeling. My approach to photography is a special mixture of mastery and chance. Inspired by the documentary genre, I give way to a lot of space for reality, and the unexpected events that entails. I have learned through photography that you often have to push a little further than the next street, the next hill or the next wave.”
