The themes of the web-site " photographic Uncertainties "


The series proposed below are constituted from photos taken of 1974 in our days, since Rollei SL66 (size 6x6 cm) up to a Cannon 5D Mark2 (21 Mb), by way of diverse digital sizes.
These displays do not include all the pictures for a given theme but are constituted by a selection which aims at giving coherent sets, both at the level of the sub-subjects and of the graphics and the colors.
This website was created 10 years ago. Photos are never available in their original size and thumbnail size varies depending on the date of publication (from 350 to 500 px).

The re-use of these images is only authorized for a strictly non-commercial use (see the detailed conditions). For other cases (purchase of enlargement, exhibitions, etc.), contact me.

Most of these topics are published in French, but the text is often limited to a title, it should not affect your ability to see.

See also the mini, weekly page of photos, subjects from 1 to 6 photos, with, or not, texts and former engravings. This collection was created in 2012 and exists directly in English version, and also in Spanish and French version

Another way of consulting photos published on this site is to use the page of 900 photos which allows to reach in 900 (Google) or 1600 photos ( Bing) the most looked among 3000 photos, and more, which are published on this site, on a picture library of more than 50 000 pictures.

Some of the presented subjects are accompanied with definitions of dictionaries published between 1690 and 1880, such that of Furetiere.
