"While he likes to describe himself as an "Epicurean photographer”, Bruno, by his humanist nature, can be described as a portraitist. A strong supporter of prime lenses, he equally likes digital photography and 6x6 medium format. Notwithstanding his skills in technologies and technic, Bruno lets himself be guided by the vibration of the moment in order to capture images filled with meaning and sensuality."
Paulo Lobo (Editor @Wunnen Magazine)
My confort zones are IT, technologies, engeenering and related domains, but what inspires me is writing poetry, photography and motorbiking.
enlightens the colours of my life
In all the pleats of the time
I want drown myself in your eyes
Under your light
my soul is vulnerable
and all my love devoted (Bruno de Séré - Feb. 2006)
Extase du motard
I also love combining my passions with poetry. Below a poem written in 2010, about how, on my own perspective, a motorbiker should savour the art of piloting a motorbike.
La route exhibe ses délices dans sa robe anthracite,
S'immiscer, s'introduire dans ses courbes sublimes
Savourer, goûter l'ivresse de l'excès
S'abandonner à caresser des trajectoires de canaille au pays des malices
Se défoncer au son de l'Akrapovitch comme Reed, Hendricks, les Stones
Perdu dans l'extase de la défonce, le motard flamboyant
S'envole et s'abandonne à des freinages appuyés et trajectoires léchées.
Déguster avec gourmandise ce délicieux nectar,
Observer, apprécier, anticiper, se laisser surprendre, réfléchir,
Oser appréhender une complexe chimie
Sans cesse apprendre humblement, s'adapter indéfiniment, et explorer de nouvelles pistes pour aiguiser ses sens. (Bruno de Séré - novembre 2010)
Une étoile couchée sur la lumière,
Un coin d’espace, en paix,
Un feu sacré. (Bruno de Séré - mars 2019)

Over time, I positioned myself by reflecting on fundamental questions about photography. When does editing become betrayal? Does the quest for aesthetics allow us to violate ethics? Am I a photographer or an artist who remodels the world? Photography or “photo-graphics”? I focus on the authenticity of the captured moment and free my work, as much as possible, from computer post-processing. I assume that a photograph is the witness of a moment and not an agent rearranging a scene. Nowadays we are faced with the strong temptation of tempering with the facts. The cult of the image joined by narcissism and marketing, prompt us to give a flattering image of our photos, which are in themselves an extension of our ego. My discipline of being "factual" forces me to be more rigorous when I'm shooting and to produce “organic pictures”.
This set of pictures are from rolls of film developed and processed by myself. Using film is more than just a fashion phenomenon reserved for hipsters or wacky people. In a world where everything is consumed with frenzy, this return into the past give me the privilege to observe our world with more serenity, rediscovering patience and the magical taste of the delayed moments.
