Variations de Lumière opus 6 détail | Éric Petr

Variations of Light op.6

Photography, the way I approach it, is first of all a writing. My work is therefore attached to the root of the word “photography” and all my research aims to play with this meaning.

Variations of Light op.5

This new opus, in the continuity of a reflection on the essence of light, questions the effect it produces in the perception of the BEING and its immediate or cosmic environment.  

Radiant Night 2o2o

I wanted to talk about my city, Marseille, an unloved and yet so beautiful city, split by its scars, its urban wounds, which offers its divine protection from the Good Mother only to those who amaze.

h2O-Ray_47Ag 2o2o

Images that arise during the great confinement of 2020. From these photographs emerge both peace and anxiety of mind. While the world has suddenly stopped, in this surreal immobility, LE SILENCE imposes itself everywhere.

Variations of Light op.3

Photographic triptych 2020.
A reflection on the symbolism of the essence of life from which arises this creative energy which, like a wave, unfolds through space-time and reproduces itself ad infinitum.

Thema Metamorphoses

Bodies in dilation like floating ethers, which take shape in complex and unstructured volumes that the image restores to the gaze as a possible reality.

Ô Fujisan 2o18 

It’s fall 2018, I’m on Lake Kawaguchiko and I’m waiting for it.
I feel its presence.
It’s a vibration that goes through me…

Threads of light streaming over the world like water spreading life.

Sun 2o16

Sun 2o16, is just a contemplation.

光の痕跡 thema

My negative is like the painter’s canvas and the light, his brush. Thus the axiom posed, the ray of light is fixed; it is the device that must be mobile.

Dichotomies 2o15

Full moon lunar dichotomies, an inaccuracy yet made possible.


光 Hikari in Japanese means light. A photographic research that questions the source of the universe.

A work on light, which results in creating as many paintings as there are photographs.  Reading is as much about looking as it is about feeling.
