Photographer, Pierre Carreau’s AquaViva series effortlessly carries the range of the human condition in wave-like forms. Carreau’s images of waves, each distinct from the other, captures a flash in time that is often unseen by the human eye. Carreau suspends each wave to expose its life, feeling and purpose, similar to the expression of emotional states in humans, such that feelings are universal, but the expression through an individual is what makes the experience unique. One cannot help but feel the formlessness of the bountiful ocean and its kinetic energy thrusting to shore.
Carreau describes the goal of his work is to, “transfer the waves’ energy to those who view them. Water is amazing, it has no color, but through reflection and refraction it can possess all of them, the entire spectrum of light.”
