AquaViva: Amazing Photos of Waves by Pierre Carreau
“AquaViva” is a fantastic personal project by French photographer Pierre Carreau, exploring the shapes of waves with a variety of high-speed cameras and special lenses.
“These images mix power and fragility. Like glass or metallic sculpture, they bring us momentary treasures created by nature. Each wave is different and a single wave offers various beautiful shapes and light reflexion. However to get a good picture, the process is extensive. Pierre has to take hundreds of shots to capture the right moment. In his words: ‘Digital photography and the best camera/lens are absolutely necessary to create my images. Technology allows me to make it possible’.”
