Cover by Philippe Ramette

For the cover and insert images of this edition we gave carte blanche to Philippe Ramette, french artist born in 1961 in Auxerre.

Philippe Ramette, a surrealist dreamer conceives poetic images sometimes burlesque thus underlining the absurdity of our world.

In the images of the series exploration rationnelle des fonds sous-marins presented in this edition, the artist go under water lonely and ignores humain contingencies such as breathing and the fact that he goes very deep.

i am very sensitive to anything that enables me to comprehend in a different way the physical constraints of our rational world.

Although he produces no visual effects. he uses a mecanical camera his prosthesis for attitudes in this shoot made in Corsica a team of divers helped him to breath between shoots made by his mate
Marc Domage.

Philippe Ramette, lives and works in Paris and he is represented by the Xippas Gallery.
