Yann Calonne

Photographs


Originally from Haute-Maurienne in Savoie, I had the chance to evolve in a beautiful landscape surrounded by high mountains and wild spaces. I was thus attracted very early by the nature and this desire, this need to compose with its atmospheres, these fleeting moments out of time. I now live in Rouen in Normandy, where my professional career led me to work as a laboratory assistant in a photographic laboratory, at the time of film and digital transition. After a few years of experience in this field I finally specialized in multimedia as a graphic designer, web designer and motion designer. Trades always linked in some way to the image. Today, photography continues to accompany me, and with it, always the same need for exploration and contemplative wanderings in this nature that is precious to us.
