The focus of Christophe Boisvieux’s photography lies in the bond between man and spirituality. As a veteran photographer and author of travel books, his images have been published in prestigious newspapers and magazines internationally, images which take us on a gentle mystical tour around the world, paying silent respect to the beliefs, the people, the culture and the environments they reveal. He has mastered “writing with light”, as he describes photography, going back and forth between the earthly and the spiritual, the human and the divine… You can see more of Christophe’s work at www.christopheboisvieux.com.
