Alain Combemorel


Photographer of sweeping landscapes, wandering mind and a sailor committed to social and environmental causes, Alain Combemorel was born in 1968 and grew up in Hyères, facing the Mediterranean sea.

For the past 20 years he has worked for Greenpeace and more recently for Médecins Sans Frontières. On sea and on land, when outside the tumult of a fight for a better life, Alain’s photography has captured the great silences of the mountains and the hidden world away from beaten tracks, the friendly games of the animals and the humans.

He is living and working between Auxi le Chateau, In Pas de Calais, and the rest of the world, where shadow and light are ready to give themselves to the stillness of his gaze.

In his photo bag:

– A 24×36 camera
– A medium format (6×6)
– And a view camera (4×5 inches)

For many years the film of choice was the Kodak TriX but now all the work is done mainly using the Bergger Pancro 400

A good photo, it’s a subject, some light and coffee! Buy me one here on Kofi Buy Me a Coffee at
