Blazing Sun

When the sun makes its rays dance, Antoine Henault captures its shining perceptions. An invitation to travel, his work Insolations transports us into a hypnotizing visual universe.

Antoine Henault is a self-taught photographer. Inspired by Sally Mann's intimate portraits and Edward Hopper's paintings, his photographic writing is full of softness and nostalgia. The winner of the Roversi endowment of the Prix Picto de la Photographie de Mode 2022 is in constant search of a connection between beings and their environment. With Insolations, he brings together the near and the far, the intimacy and the passion.

There is the sensuality of the bodies under the burning sun, the sweet taste of the fruit bowls, the shadows that caress the foliages. Far from the pain of sunstroke, it is a formidable indolence that comes from the images.

The sky is without clouds, wild landscapes and bright colors, we even think we capture the sounds and the perfumes. The light, formidably captured, deposits a golden film on the island shores. From Martinique to Paros, via Tinos, Antoine Henault pays tribute to the nature in which he grew up.
