The sea never retreats: it stays. Frédéric JONARD also stays : he wants to see the world set, the sun die and time stop. A great photographer is someone who knows how to stop time at the right moment - not to interrupt life, but to make it spring forth instead. Frédéric JONARD is a great photographer : he knows how to contemplate. He knows above all that the only temple that is worthwhile is not made of brick, but of waves and wind.

In this photo, not only do we see the wind blowing, but we hear it. A great photographer listens to himself - there is a music of the image - Frédéric JONARD, I know, would have dreamed of being a musician : he is. And nothing is more difficult to compose than silence :
Look - Listen.
