Marie-France Grenouillet – Wildlife Photographer
Born in Normandy, I am French and spent my childhood in a village with one dream: to discover the world. With the time my dream came true as I had the opportunity to travel in the near countries to learn languages. I must confess that it was more useful in this context than for anything else!!! From that moment, all my free time and all my money were kept to live my passion!
Now, I can say I went nearly all over the world but my website is not representative of the many countries that I have visited before the digital.
For freedom I never travel with groups, unless compulsory. After many years of wandering, I am still drunk of perfumes, colors and images of the remote countries, but the memories get blurred with the time and the reality turns to be, in part, the fruit of our imagination!
So, with the birth of digital, I choose a more sophisticated camera to come with me on the roads, I felt then with happiness that I had the world in my bag.
Photography means a lot of patience and time which I accepted with pleasure. My camera taught me how to look around more carefully to observe the daily beautiful details of life and overall “she” allows me to translate my emotions in front of nature & wildlife!
Pictures show what words cannot translate precisely and help us to keep an authentic memory of the past, they are a faithful witness when the souvenirs become with the time just a sepia tone memory!
