    Lucie Estoupan-Pastré

    A keen photographer for over 15 years, Lucie has always been drawn to images and fascinated by the power of framing.

    She loves snapshots, the positive side of people, urban life and a certain quirkiness, including a series called ‘Miami 13600’ made up of shots taken in La Ciotat.

    She expresses herself fully through colour.

    She has taken part in around fifty group exhibitions, as well as Agathe Rescanières' book “Le plus vieux cinéma du monde” (The Oldest Cinema in the World), in the company of six other photographers.

    She won 1st prize in the Grand Prix Photo de St Tropez in 2015 and the Jury Prize in the Toulon Town Hall photo competition ‘Toulon forever’ in 2021.

    She has been secretary of the La Ciotat photo club ‘Ombre des Lumières’ for several years.

    Denys Pastré
    ‘An image is a window through which you can escape’.

    He began taking photographs in 1975-80, when he photographed exclusively in black and white (admiring the work of Jean Loup Sieff) with a Zeiss Ikon Voigtlander and developed all his shots in a makeshift lab in a bathroom. He abandoned the lab around 1982, working mainly with reversal films such as Kodachrome 25 or 64.
    He switched to digital in the early 2000s.
    His natural photographic tendencies in the early days were landscapes (Scotland, Italy, Provence) and the seaside in our region.
    The human side has not been abandoned and has taken on greater importance over the last ten years or so.
    A perfectionist, he likes to take great care with each photo to ensure that the quality and light reflect the emotion he felt when he took it.
    His lack of premeditation, his intuitions, his desire, whether conscious or not, to convey the fleeting impressions that cross his path, are all essential elements in his practice of photographic art.
    This is how he feels, how he understands his artistic wanderings in the company of his indispensable ally, the Light, without which, for him, photography has no life.

    In 2009, he joined the La Ciotat photo club ‘Ombre des Lumières’, becoming its president and exhibition curator in 2017.
