Tipp No. 65: “AquaViva Series” – Fine Arts Photography by Pierre Carreau

arts, Kunst, Nature

MacroWaves, WaterPower and LiquidExtasy…Pierre Carreau`s art pieces capture moments of breath-taking beauty and deep emotions depended on the state of mind, perspective and individual background of the viewer.

His work showcases the dual nature of water: life-giving and yet dangerous, inviting and yet fearsome, primordial and yet ever-changing and always renewed. 

Carreau observes that the photographic images of AquaViva may sometimes be perceived as objects rather than as two-dimensional representations. The play of light off the multitude of facets and curves on the water’s surface gives the image a sculptural quality that enhances the sense of stillness and power.

This sculptural effect of dynamism in static suspension is at once conscious and haphazard, a function of the rapid genesis of these images and the evident fact that the artist cannot possibly see the final work at the very moment of its birth.


Born in 1972 near Paris, Pierre Carreau grew up surrounded by artistic influences in a family that included a photographer, sculptors and painters. Perhaps in reaction to this subtle pressure, he chose initially to pursue a different path and graduated from university with a degree in business. Yet the soul of the artist would not be repressed, and after a number of years working in the IT industry, Carreau returned to his roots and became a professional photographer.

A long-held love of the ocean and water-sports led him to work photographing action shots for surf and kite-surf magazines, but the water itself eventually captured his artistic imagination and became the genesis of AquaViva.

In 2004 Pierre moved with his wife and children to the Caribbean island of St. Barthélemy. This small paradise has become Carreau’s open-air studio, where the subtle variations of light from the tropical sun and the endlessly changing soul of the sea become the subjects of his vision.

Poem No. 59: “Fragile Things – Zerbrechliches” by Friða Ísberg (Iceland)

Gedichte, poems
Iceland, Black Beach


wet paper
tangled in birch branches

inside the window, smoking,
a woman with red hair

says to herself:

they can’t hear me anymore

slip into the white
like burst egg yolks

the living room is heavy

on the carpet,
fragile things, scattered,

soaked in bile

she wraps them
in old newspapers

and shoves them back
down her throat

Translated from the Icelandic into English by Meg Matich


Nasses Papier
verheddert in Birkenzweige

Drinnen das Fester, rauchend,
eine Frau mit rotem Haar

sagt zu sich selbst:

sie können mich nicht mehr hören

gleiten in das Weiß
wie geplatzte Eidotter

das Wohnzimmer ist groß/mächtig

auf dem Teppich,
zerbrechliche Sachen, verstreut,

durchtränkt mit Gallensaft

sie wickelt sie ein
in alte Zeitungen

und schiebt sie zurück 
Ihre Kehle hinunter.
