From Northern Beaches to Le Mont-Saint-Michel - Photo Plisson

From Northern Beaches to Le Mont-Saint-Michel

During nearly 2 years, I lived an extraordinary adventure, may be the hardest challenge, and the most risky of a marine photographer.

We have been travelling the French coastlines, from the Belgian border to the Italian border, a real inventorial work in the spirit of the Marine Painters, an adventure in partnership with Editions du Chêne, Hachette / Lagardere Group.

A meticulous work to achieve 6 exceptional books:

  • Volume 1: From northern beaches to Le Mont Saint Michel
  • Volume 2: From Cancale to Ouessant
  • Volume 3: From Brest to Nantes
  • Volume 4: From Pornic to Hendaye
  • Volume 5: From Cerbère to Menton
  • Volume 6: Around Corsica
