Julien Coquentin takes viewers on a very personal photographic journey into the French countryside in his series “Black Seasons”.
“Black Seasons” is a five part series by the extremely talented French photographer Julien Coquentin. The images are an atmospheric showcase of Julien’s childhood memories. Taking the viewer on a very personal photographic journey into the French countryside.
Explaining the concept, he says: “In my memory, it is bounded by some hills, some meadows, forest, village, countryside as a playground. And that’s what we were, the country’s children, the children of a landscape. I had the chance to grow in a protected environment, we were a few friends, animals with a territory.” Julien continues: “We had our huts, hiding places, secrets. This child then wrote my relationship to space and returning to those places is like being a kid, eternal, part of the earth. My black seasons are fields, peasants, the darkness of a church, the silence of the forest, mad dashes and lowing of cattle, the inexorable passage of time between my fingers.”
