Mr Duchemin’s work
David Duchemin’s work, for some reason I am yet to understand, makes me feel at ease with the world.
I go through his VENICE, A Monograph and suddenly, the day, as heavy as it started, becomes light and flows gently to take me to a serene mood where anger dilutes and life starts to make some kind of sense. I guess inspiring is the word to define the effect it has on me. But why? Why is it so? I don’t know. I can only suspect it may have something to do with what it feels to me like an honest expression of deep, basic, emotions. But, how on earth does a photography book manage to achieve so? Again, no idea. If I knew, I could probably call myself a photographer.
So, for now, while I keep searching for my own way to expression, I can only hope Mr Duchemin’s books keep coming to life this often.
