Background Information about Françoise Gaujour

The poetry of colour is laid bare in Francoise Gaujour’s series The Furrow, and our gaze becomes lost in the subtle transition between horizon and sky. These expressive landscapes are both evocative and emotional. The portrait format, unusual for this genre, supports the almost painterly look. While in some places the different layers merge with one other seamlessly, in others we see sky, water, and beach contrast like abstract colour planes. Lone figures, often identifiable only as silhouettes, strengthen the association with romance paintings and emphasize the relationship between man and nature.

These tranquil pictures were taken at the bay of Saint Malo along the North Brittany coastline. The strong tides in this area ensure the beach changes appearance at different times of the day. In this way, Gaujour’s series can also be seen as a cyclical study of the ocean, one that allows us to trace the raw power of nature.

In France, Gaujour is a famous TV and radio journalist. At the turn of the millennium, inspired by a trip to Mali, she began a second career as a photographer. She documents the beauty of our world in atmospheric landscape and nature shots taken on her travels around the globe, revealing a unique appreciation for colours and their different moods.
