Eau Secours

Each droplet that glides over the skin tells a unique story

Quelques mots sur Eau Secours


Water, cradle of life and the original mirror of humanity, reveals its poetry in Arnaud Baumann’s “Eau Secours” collection. Each droplet that glides over the skin tells a unique story, captured with sensitivity by the renowned photographer.

In this artistic exploration, Baumann invites us to introspect our connection with water and nature. These analog prints highlight detail, expression, and emotion. Under the shower, a moment of vulnerability and sincerity, faces reveal themselves, personalities emerge, and stories are whispered silently. This intimate contact with water evokes a range of reactions, from surprise to meditation, ecstasy to melancholy.

More than simple photographs, these images are artworks, signed and numbered by the artist. With his documentarian’s eye and humanist heart, Arnaud Baumann captures fleeting moments of truth. His models, whether artists, writers, scientists, or unknown individuals, share a part of their intimacy, offering a kaleidoscope of society in search of existential answers.

The high-quality prints on metallic paper, where water appears like pearls or precious crystal shards, captivate the eye and invite contemplation.

Each portrait is an invitation to reconnect with the very essence of life.
