I often photograph these rocks at any time of the day or year. There, on that freezing winter morning, the raging sea harasses them, continuously covering them with impetuous waves. I observe the scene for a moment to discover what interests me: the serenity of these imperturbable rocks. I take a long pose that transforms the fury of the sea into a vaporous foam and draws the shadow of the rocks, until then invisible to the naked eye. As if anchored in the image, the rocks now seem to hold the blue of the sea at bay. By suspending the fight, the photo reveals the calm hidden in this violent scene, while maintaining the tension between the elements. What I particularly like here is the brain’s effort to try to reconstruct the central square, as if it did not accept that it can be opened.

Filmmaker ( "My dear parents",...), scriptwriter, actor ( a few films and hundreds of fictions and readings for France Culture), Martin AMIC started photography very early. These different artistic practices are mutually enriching. In 2009, he met Willy Ronis for a long time, who carefully analysed and analysed his work, pointing out with kindness the elements on which he needed to improve. He did this conscientiously for the next eight years.

Today, his photographic work has matured. The image, inseparable from the text that accompanies it, becomes an extraordinary fragment of history that the spectator’s imagination enriches.

For square formats on a very limited edition black or white background: Since time immemorial, whatever the medium, he has been interested in abolishing the frame. In the work presented here, light or its absence accompanies the gaze towards the colours or the subject by dissolving the frame and the useless, while opening the imagination to the occulted parts. The black and white flat areas create a distance from the subject, like a Brechtian distance, which gives a different view of the photographic object. Martin AMIC proposes a reflection on the blurring of the boundaries between photography, painting and drawing.

"Fiat Lux! And there was light. It is from this primordial darkness that Martin Amic makes us discover all that we do not see of the objects or architectures that we thought we knew. But more than an earthly light through his photos, it is indeed a penetrating light of sensitive humanity that radiates to us! What a beautiful discovery these pictures are!" Nathalie Kaufmann-Khelifa Historian of Art, author.
