I just came across the preview for this documentary on Vimeo, and I really like the looks of it. I feel like I’m always looking for this kind of photography documentary, but they seem to be a rare thing. If you know of anything similar or other nice documentaries, let us know in the comments.
The full-length, 52 minute film, by Mathieu Le Lay was released in November 2012:
The Quest for Inspiration is an immersion into the world of Alexandre Deschaumes evocative landscape photographer. The artist portrays the world landscapes with a dreamlike and artistic vision. This was after many solitary wanderings through the autumn forests that he developed his own universe. Guided by the dreamy and enchanting atmosphere of the wilderness, he tries to transform his emotions into some form of evocative beauty. Playing with lights, colors, shapes and contrasts, Alexandre has learned to magnify the natural landscape, giving the appearance sometimes surreal. His images, sometimes comparable to real paintings, emanate from the mountain life and natural elements that compose it. Beyond the mountains, he is attracted by the amazing wilderness of iceland. While he is preparing a new expedition in Patagonia, Alexandre must face the torment of nature in his quest for ethereal images.
