MAN, THE ARTIST
Jean-Pierre BAILLY was born in 1944 in Etampes (Essone). For over
twenty years he has chosen to live and work in Montpellier, between
the Cevennes and the Mediterranean Sea.
The man is passionate, loves freedom, impertinent and somewhat
provocative. Being a perfectionist, he unceasingly is in quest
of beauty and relishes a well-done job.
Here is a born organizer, a leader, endeavouring and ready to face
any challenge with pleasure.
Sensitive, romantic, Jean-Pierre BAILLY is in love with nature
and especially with its colours. Photographer at times, he captures
the light, the shades, sparkling iridescent effects on the water
of a river. As he contemplates the sea and its infinite blue-green
iridescent reflections, Nature is for him a motherly source in
which he finds serenity and inspiration.
