Photos by Valérian Mazataud

Inspired by japanese archery, Kyudo, where the arrow has to be shot without intention, these long exposures were shot using digital camera obscura and display the multiple variations of the ocean horizon line at dusk. Pictures of welsh sea front strollers looking towards the sea give a sense of community and bear witness to the last landscape we take the time to stare at without any expectation.


Valérian Mazataud is a french photographer based in Montreal, Canada. While shooting mainly documentary work, he’s been exploring new visual approaches during a summer residency at the Aberystwyth Art Center of Wales with the help of the Quebec Art council.
