Landscapes Dizziness” is a sensory experience that reminds us of the speed at which we travel through life, often failing to fully immerse ourselves in the moments of natural beauty that surround us. This photographic work celebrates both speed and sensation, attempting to capture the immediacy of experiences and the richness of fleeting sensations.


By deliberately highlighting the lines between movement and stillness, “Landscapes Dizziness” challenges us to find a moment of pause, a space for contemplation amidst our relentless pace. These series, currently broken down into three univers, Railways, Architectural Presence, and Nature's Powerconstitute a poetic work that speaks to our senses and our soul, reminding us of the importance of slowing down, breathing deeply, and opening ourselves to the subtle yet profound wonders of the world around us. By capturing these moments without digital distortion, Michael Bouton offers us a unique perspective on ephemeral beauty and invites us to search for and linger on the journey that is our life.


Like life itself, “Landscapes Dizziness” is a work in constant evolution.


With his series (T)(X) - La Défense, Michael Bouton aims to render the work of everyday builders abstract and poetic This series is part of a more figurative work called ar(T)chitec(X)ture, highlighting his passion for architecture.

ar(T)chitec(X)ture :

or how to combine fine art photography with architectural photography

City seen by Fine Art photographer
First, a brief semantic explanation: Ar(T)chitec(X)ture is a personal photographic project purely artistic in intent, featuring photos centered on the theme of Architecture and Textures. It is thus a contraction of the words ART, ARCHITECTURE, and TEXTURE

Enhancing buildings through Fine Art photography

Typically, when we walk in urban environments, we see buildings without really looking at them. We take in their entirety and, as if everything were normal, we move on. However, behind a school, a community hall, an office building, or just simple business premises, there hides one or more architects. These individuals have spent weeks, if not months, integrating their ideas into our daily lives. These technicians and experts in architecture are not just specialists in construction. They are, for me, builders of the world.

Lines, curves, shadows, lights, textures, colors… these are not random. They are the thoughtful and structured assembly of various materials. Add to this the expertise of architects and master builders. This is what allows a structure to endure over decades or even centuries.

This is what I feel when I look at the buildings around me.

A unique photography of distinctive architectural works

Here, the goal is not to present the building as it is. On the contrary, the purpose of this photographic project is to highlight the building in a different composition and framing. To show it from a new angle. Combining fine art photography with architectural photography, for me, means:

 

                  ◦               Highlighting a part of the construction.

                  ◦               Showing things from a different perspective.

                  ◦               Integrating the environment into its building (note: yes, in that sense).

 

It’s about enhancing a part of the building to give another, unembellished view, just with my photographer’s eye.

Photos to showcase the artistic vision of architects

Ultimately, the goal is not to alter reality through post-processing, but rather to enhance it by highlighting details invisible at first glance. My aim is to reveal the lines and curves envisioned by architects, which remain invisible to the eyes of passersby.

Whether it’s a train station, a hotel, or a museum, I love to photograph a building from a different angle. I enjoy playing with geometric shapes and color nuances. I appreciate when there are no people around so that the focus can be solely on the construction itself. But I love it even more when there are people around. It brings the places to life and adds dynamism to an otherwise static structure. I like playing with the lighting, with a clear sky that highlights the construction in its simplest form. But conversely, I also appreciate clouds that add depth and a more dramatic aspect.

 

 

Indeed, this project is also about making people want to look at the photo and ensuring that buildings are more than just simple constructions. Ultimately, it’s about highlighting the work of these women and men, these creators who decorate our world. That’s my vision of Art-chitecture.
