Cappadoce par Jean-Baptiste Liautard

In 2020, Cappadocia, with its lunar landscapes and famous fairy chimneys, became the setting for an exceptional photo shoot for Kilian Bron, organized by Jean-Baptiste Liautard. Fascinated by this region, Jean-Baptiste had the unique opportunity to photograph Kilian amidst this magical scenery for about ten days.

Combining the discipline of mountain biking with the unique panorama of Cappadocia represented a golden opportunity for Jean-Baptiste. This place is also famous for its hot air balloon flights: every morning, nearly 200 balloons rise at sunrise, creating a spectacular scene.

However, capturing a strong image in this setting required finding the right place and the right moment, which proved to be more complex than expected. After several days of scouting, Jean-Baptiste and his team finally found themselves at the foot of a ridge at dawn. Through a combination of luck and anticipation, they captured the perfect moment: the wind blew in the right direction, the sky was tinted with pastel colors, the balloons aligned, and Kilian jumped over a rock, offering a breathtaking image.
