Jean Guichard’s most famous image was captured as a wave was about to engulf the La Jument lighthouse in North western France. The lighthouse keeper opened the door to the lighthouse as the photographer hovered overhead thinking that a rescue helicopter had arrived.
Elodie Graham, Manager of Easyart France says, “The most remarkable thing about La Jument is that Guichard never wanted to take the shot. He was shouting ‘get back in!’ to the keeper, but of course he couldn’t hear. The figure in the picture is of course what adds such a tremendous sense of scale though and the print has sold millions of copies as a result”.
Guichard’s famous lighthouse photographs including 3 exclusive new releases are available as fine art prints from Easyart.com. The prints have been released to coincide with a new lighthouse exhibition at the Maritime Museum in Paris opening 7th March 2012.
