This magnificent Class J has just resurrected after 50 years of abandonment. A pretty bunch of madmen without much means decided to take the boat out of the mud, to make it navigable again and to arm it with its original rigging. One of my very beautiful meetings upwind at Douarnenez Festivals in 1988.” Philip Plisson

Photograph printed on painting canvases and mounted on 3,5 cm wooden frames.

The image is printed using printing inks that benefit of a recovery and recycling system (Conibi). The frames are made of pine from plantations that respect environmental standards.

Philip Plisson was born on the banks of the Loire and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer at the age of 4. It was there that his father passed on to him his first passion: sailing. The need for the sea will never abandon him! At the age of 9 he discovered his second passion: photography, thanks to his paternal grandmother who gave him his first camera. At the beginning of the 1980s, Philip decided to earn a living with his two passions: photography to sail and sailing to take photographs. Appointed Peintre de la Marine in 1991, he witnesses great events related to the world of the sea in order to preserve the memory of contemporary maritime life, as was Richelieu’s original intent when he created the Corps des Peintres de la Marine. Plisson, a sailor-photographer, has only one common thread: to cultivate every day the desire for images to create and share.
