Everyday Journey / FTA Photos: “Educated and still performing as a musician and oboist, Franck Avril turned his passion for Nature and for color into his photography. The result is EverydayJourney.net, stemming from the belief that beauty surrounds us in all forms, always close at hand. His work encompasses primarily 35mm slide film as well as digital photography, with a range of subject matter from birds to butterflies, to large landscapes, and with a penchant for floral photography (including floral macro-photography). He believes that while the best camera in the world is a person’s eyes and soul, that it is the responsibility of the photographer to capture as much of the essence of the subject, and to stir in the viewer an animated response to the beauty of life and its many forms.”
