photo contest

Starting soon, CITAP (Can I Take a Picture), will start organizing photo contests with beginners photographers, emerging photographers, professional photographers, to identify new talented photographers from all over the world and promote their work. We plan to share your work into our new CITAP photo magazine, organise exhibition in galleries, and print our annual CITAP photographers of the year book.

The idea is to organist a photo contest, that you can find a photo context in your country, and you will be able to show you photographic work, share your images, show your protofolio and become a famous photographer maybe?

Ocytocine

The isolated tribes are happy people, they make with what they have since their childhood.These peoples are rooted into their seasons, their food supply , they are in accordance with their environment.
In our western societies we became operators on a chain of products, a society that wants to erase our differences so that the whole human group works, to eliminate the nuances between the individuals, the loss of confidence in Diversity.
It is easy to say that if everything has changed, it is the fault of the Foreigner, this other to us. Lack of analysis on oneself.
We are every film directors of our life and we give intentions to the others.
There is a real necessity of reinventing ourselves, of founding this serenity this first people still have.

Paul Ricoeur « the shortest way from ourselves to ourselves, goes through the other »

Patrice Pelissier d.F lives in a small village south of France, Saint Martin de Londres. Idealist, realistic, Patrice still believes the good is possible, if we really want it.

my language

my language

“All these little pieces of paper I have painted are like letters of the alphabet, they are my vocabulary, my language, I am not sure what I am going to do with them” says Parisian artist Olivier GARAND.

In the left entrance of his studio in the 11e district near La Bastille, Olivier collects stones from the African deserts he used to collect while trekking for three weeks in a row in the Sahel regions, “I like the idea of the discovery; just like I discover a new stone in the sand desert untouched for thousands of years, I like the idea of discovering my art pieces as I progress in creating them, as new discovery…. ”

Olivier’s show in Paris is a real success “I think people like colors because people need colors, our world is grey, that’s why I avoid watching the news on TV”. Colorful pieces of paper, collages, drawings, sculptures, Olivier’s world is a rainbow in his eyes.

 

 

The painted writing

The painted writing

“I spent my life writing as much as painting”says Jean Cortot. Friend of famous photographers Man Ray and Henri Cartier-Bresson but also Picasso, Jean invited me for lunch Rue du Bac at the Fontenoy cafe, and when he entered all the customers stopped talking and watched at this elegant old artist. Born in Alexandrie, Jean is a poet as much as a painter and succeeded in making the symbiose between writing and painting. Inspired by Jean Tardieu and Paul Morand, James Joyce but also Giacometti, Jean proposed to invite me in his appartement to see the painting from Matisse of his famous pianist and father Alfred Cortot. Guess what I responded?
