Le phare

Extrait de la série « le phare », réalisée en Bretagne uniquement grâce à la lumière d’un phare maritime. Nuits sans lune obligatoire. Si l’oeil humain ne distingue rien dans la nuit noire, la rétine de l’appareil photographique, elle, reste ouverte très longtemps. Alors le temps trouve le temps de laisser sa trace. Sous la caresse imperturbable de ce pinceau lumineux, les rochers s'émeuvent, s'ébrouent et prennent vie. Parfois, à l'horizon, la lueur d'un cargo trace un rail imaginaire. Et là-haut, la course des étoiles prend la mesure du temps de pose. TIRAGE ARGENTIQUE RÉALISÉ À L'AGRANDISSEUR, PAR L'AUTEUR.

Portrait of Patrice Terraz

A self-taught photographer

A self-taught artist, Patrice Terraz is a member of the « Signatures » group of photographers with whom he has worked since its creation as well as working for the national press and for the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur (PACA) region of France.  His work is also frequently used in the communications industry.  Photographing sailors in their precarious every day environment, the greater part of his personal work is focussed on the maritime world of ports.  His various photographic jobs have enabled him to travel all over the world from Marseille to Dakar, passing via Algeciras or Istanbul.

Photographing society

What Patrice Terraz photographs is mainly the facts of today’s society.  Without ever bringing any judgement to bear on his subjects, he tells their stories as he looks to convey the beauty of the moment as he sees it.  In addition to his series of photographs that feature the maritime world, for many years, the photographer has immortalised the city of Marseille where he lives.  In 2014, Patrice Terraz went to a professional secondary school in Perpignan and followed the daily lives of pupils who were viewed as being difficult.  Here he captured many moments of happiness and interchanges which contrasted strongly with the received ideas of those who were allegedly “in the know” about these sorts of children.  He also regularly attends the Festival of Cinema at Alès as well as the Cannes Film Festival in order to do portraits of the artists who attend.

A global reach

Because Patrice Terraz has a heartfelt desire to demonstrate the beauty that surrounds him, he has exhibited at numerous exhibitions in France and abroad, notably in Zurich, Barcelona, London and New York.  His work has also been the subject for several books.  The series “Californy,” which was released in 2017, peers into the intimate heart of a group of adolescents from Corbeille-Essonnes who the photographer followed during the course of a year.
