This picture is based on the fear of death. Because death is a source of sadness, anguish and despair. The bruised heart of the loss of a loved one, the unbearable grief of mourning invades us. But in confronting it on ends up accepting it.
My name is Cédric Brion.
Freelance photographer artist, I was born in 1978 in Belgium, in the suburbs of Mons, the city where I currently live.
As the visual arts have not always been of interest, I started to develop my taste for photography at 18. My first tool was a film camera, the pictures of which I developed in the darkness of my bedroom.
This is how, after several years of research and experience, I managed to approach the world of professional photography, thanks to various competitions and works carried out for the economic world ... and thanks, of course, to my companion, Catherine, who pushed me to embark on the adventure and who believed in me!
Motivation and vision of mind.
It was during trips to the United States, Norway, Iceland and Slovenia that I understood my deep taste for a strong, if sometimes hostile nature. I saw the attraction for these dark Nordic countries, for their history, their ancient stories and their legends, arose in me. And I need to immortalize what I'm feeling through my whole being.
This is how my fascination with creating landscapes and portraits was born in a dark atmosphere, even black ... because in the dark, I see the light; from the darkness of soul there can be a clarity that overwhelms me. Too bright light often dazzles, darkness magnifies it. I like to capture these contrasts.
Through my photos, I also try to reflect my taste for ancient traditions. The Celts, Vikings and other ancient civilizations are a source of inspiration to me.
I want my landscapes and my portraits to appeal, for everyone to be able to see themselves in them and identify with them.
