When less is more - Pascal Felloneau

Before 2011 ended, on Boooooom, a blog of art and photography, has appeared a gallery containing images of the 75 best photographers found by the authors of the site last year. I wanted to examine the author of the photograph of six swans, all with their heads plunged into the dark water. I wanted to know if that picture was a "lucky moment" or if all the pictures of Pascal Fellonneau were so beautiful.

Through his photographs, the French artist, makes us see the world through his eyes: the compositions are minimal, simple, bold colors. In a world made of ordinary objects and places, he always retrieve and display the extraordinary, the wonderful and seductive.
I discover a great blog that I didn't know. Nopefun is a large collection of short interviews with photographers, artists and "geniuses"cured only by the (perhaps) Chinese Lee Chang Ming. Here I found a page dedicated to Pascal Fellonneau and a brief interview with the photographer:

nopefun: How long have you been shooting and how did you start?
Pascal: I started shooting when I was sixteen but made several pauses with photography and really re-started in 2003 when I was living in Iceland.

nopefun: What is your series “The Farm” about? What does it mean to you?
Pascal: “The Farm” is an attempt to document the house where I spent most of my boyhood, my grandparents’ farm. As I saw that along the years things were slowly changing there I wanted to keep traces of how it was when I was a child but without nostalgia.

nopefun: Favorite fruit?
Pascal: Cherries

nopefun: Any new music to recommend?
Pascal: I listen mostly to old tunes and classical music, so it would be very hard to recommend new music, sorry for that.
