New PDF release: Embarqué. Carnets marins dans le jardin du commandant (BAND

By Christian Cailleaux,Didier Decoin

Peintre des silences et des solitudes embarquées, Christian Cailleaux ne prétend pas faire le travel du sujet mais avec une économie de moyens et une palette nuancée de dessins, il s’applique à montrer des events complexes ou romanesques, autant que d’illustrer des voix fragiles ou théoriques.

Embarqué est un documentaire émouvant et inédit dans sa forme, un portrait à facettes des hommes et des femmes, de los angeles jeunesse qui a fait le choix de los angeles mer comme univers professionnel tout autant que comme cadre de vie ; une position difficile à tenir, parfois. Un voyage ailleurs et loin au cœur d’un équipage militaire, vigie des zones de pêche et sentinelle pour les communautés scientifiques installées dans des zones très éloignées et très peu habitées. Christian Cailleaux conjugue esquisses, dessins concepts et marines délicates, une approche renouvelée qui, à l’instar d’une mer rapidement changeante, reflète los angeles variété des profils embarqués.

S’embarquer c’est aussi pour certains s’éloigner d’une réalité à terre devenue trop lourde à supporter comme l’isolement de ce jeune adulte, grand enfant devenu trop vite orphelin. Christian Cailleaux porte un regard assuré d’humanité sur ces marins d’eaux dures, et caressant l’image pittoresque du marin en lui donnant l’épaisseur et l. a. chair des marins militaires rencontrés avec qui il a navigué, il bouscule ainsi los angeles poésie de ces icônes puisqu’être embarqué en 2015 répond aussi à une motivation économique pour los angeles plupart.
