up in Montalivet, France, along the Atlantic coast, Christophe Vermare
raised in a nudist family. He says growing up like that helped him
to discover the little magical moments in life. It wasn't the perfectly
formed Swedish girls who were sunbathing by him that struck him so. It
was those infinitely brief moments, flashes of brilliance that truly
moved him. Glimpses of a woman's curves, her breast breaking through
with everything framed by the sea and sun. It was an epiphany for him.
Christophe now holds a doctorate in Plasma Physics and his life has changed
from those idyllic days of his boyhood. But the sea still draws him,
and windsurfing and sailing are passions. Another
photography - an
pictures of a girl named Anne, who eventually became his wife. Shooting
such photos, he says, is not
about intimacy, rather it is about making a brief vision last for eternity.
