About ten meters from the shore, like real tightrope walkers, these fishermen on stilts are waiting for the fish to come to them. They have learned to cope with the powerful waves of the Indian Ocean that do not allow them to fish by the sea. At dawn, or at the end of the day, each one joins his own stilt, wrapping his stuff around his head, and gets into his place, as if suspended above the swell. This traditional fishing is typical of Weligama Bay in Sri Lanka.

Philip was born on the banks of the Loire river, and discovered La Trinité-sur-Mer when he was 4 years old. This is where his father gave him his first passion: sailing. The need of sea will not leave him anymore! At 9, he discovered his second passion: the photo thanks to his paternal grandmother who offered him his first camera. In the early 80's, Philip decided to live with his two passions: photographing to navigate and navigate to photographing. Named Painter of the French Navy in 1991, he testifies to the major events related to the sea world in order to preserve the memory of our contemporary maritimity, as had wished Richelieu creating the Corps of Painters of the Navy. Philip, as a sailor-photographer, has only one leitmotiv: to have every day a new desire of image to take and to share with you.
