The sea never ceases to delight.
His birthplace – the scenic Brittany. Perhaps its extraordinary natural landscapes and inspired Mathieu Riverina to choose the genre of landscape photography. The small fishing villages, boats, towers, spires, gulls, magical sunrises and sunsets. And yet – rough rocks, waves, storm wind.
Mathieu Riverin was born in 1989 in Brest, a city in the northwestern part of France. His first camera he bought at the age of 21 years to take pictures of urban landscapes of Grenoble – the city where he studied. Since then, Mathieu has created a collection of amazing photos.
Mostly only interested in landscapes with lighthouses so rich in his native Brittany. Here is the third of the lighthouses and signal semaphores on the coast of France. Since the eighteenth century, these impregnable granite fortress, surrounded by a halo of Celtic legends warn sailors of the danger, withstanding the storms. In all of this – a real, natural beauty and natural drama. Here I would like to listen to the surf and think about eternity.
Especially the Breton landscapes after sunset or before sunrise, during the so-called “blue hour” that separates day from night.
In 2012, along with five Breton photographers Mathieu Riverin created the band “Breizh’scapes”, which specializes in shooting landscapes. In 2015 they released the photo book “Crusaders in Brittany”.
Mathieu Riverin enjoys aerial photography, filming Breton beacons from the height of bird flight. Looking at these stunning scenery, you can imagine how they see the gulls. Among his works – spectacular aerial photographs of the Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel – historical-natural complex under protection of UNESCO. His work, he publishes in Instagram and Facebook.
