Art, travel, landscapes and solidarity united by photography. Passionate about painting during his childhood and adolescence, he develops a facet of emotional sensitivity and visual perception that he exercises on his travel experiences. He began his research and photographic projects in search of the beauty and grandeur of the most impressive landscapes on the planet. places already visited and those still to be explored. During his short career, Richard Le Manz has received numerous international awards in some of the most important competitions in the world. The knowledge, respect and emotional sensitivity acquired during his travels, in addition to the management experience involved in his work, helped him launch his first photographic project. By merging solidarity and photography to help Nepal after the 2015 earthquake, the project www.nepalwillriseagain.com is a reality that continues its journey with events and exhibitions raising funds for the Himalayan country. Photography used as a means of transmitting beauty, sensations, smell, sound and even the state of mind that leads us to a certain image. However, the artist understood that photography is not only an artistic activity but a vital experience, a means of liberation to transmit ideas. In his imagination, the artist constructs images that take the viewer into a complex world of subjectivities and emotions. He is more interested in suggestion, in idea, in occultism, in what is beyond photography. New ideas, new points of view, new reflections, the search for harmony and this intangible part of art through the simplicity, composition and physical beauty of elements that always favor ideas rather than aesthetics . He is currently immersed in the creation of conceptual images. These images have different elements that are then edited to establish a dialogue between them. These images succeed in stopping time and transporting the viewer into a complex world of thoughts and reflections.
