Here’s a focus on five of the readers’ favourite discoveries, presented last August on Fisheye’s website: Pascual Martínez & Vincent Sáez, Julien Mignot, Judith Sayrach, Roger Bucher, et Françoise Huguier.
Fascinated by the culture and traditions of Romania, Pascual Martínez and Vincent Sáez have been working on their long-term project since 2014. They signed, with The Saxons of Transylvania, a series turned book, about spirituality. They tell us the story of the Saxons: an ethnic group from Germany who lived in Transylvania for 8 centuries. Let us meet the Spanish photographic duo.

“I present on my Instagram account memories from my trips over the past five years. I like working with natural elements. Nature is indeed my main source of inspiration. I realised this when I got lost in it, alone”, says Judith Sayrach, a photographer born and based in Barcelona. Seaside landscapes, trees, flowers, sunsets and birds… These are her favourite views.

From the sweet and dark images emanates a special, somewhat surreal energy. “I am captivated by the strength and deafening sound of the river. I am absorbed by the dense and dark forest. This place has the power to embrace and devour at the same time – it is both frightening and soothing.” With Lahondès, Roger Bucher immerse us into a beautiful and unsettling nature, where time seems suspended.

At the Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac museum, Françoise Huguier showcases a unique world tour. In the exhibition Les curiosités du monde de François Huguier, she has gathered objects found during her numerous trips. A palpable, intimate and extraordinary travel notebook.
