Hervé Sentucq was born in 1970. After studing science, Hervé taught in secondary schools before transforming his passion for high resolution panoramic photography into his profession. Lover of landscapes, his focus is upon outdoor photography and easily accessible, natural or historic wonders. Hervé first started by using the Fuji GX617 camera (with 90, 180 & 300 mm lenses), an incontrovertible in the film panoramic realm. From these years he acquired an unyielding strictness in terms of framing and composition. His books of panoramic images are reference for the 6x17 format.
His work essentially attempts to evoke, in a poetic way, the atmosphere of places untouched by humanity, while creating timeless works. The format and the quality of his images encourage us to see our day to day environment in a different way and bring to our attention the urge to protect some of these sites. He sets up the first panoramic photo archive of-artistic images of France. He recently moved to creating panoramas using the image stitching technique (with Canon 5DMk2 camera).
France's leading panoramic photographer, his last publication "France, the panoramas" (october 2009), results of an unprecedented 10-year project to search out and record the country?s most impressive untouched landscapes. Published by Constable & Robinson, it should be distributed worldwide. His activity as a photographer-author is oriented mostly toward advertising and illustrating themes and his work is available as Fine Art prints or for commercial usage.
