At Camargo, Nicolas Floc’h plans to further develop his ongoing research and start new projects as well. He wishes to pursue his photographic work on artificial reefs and natural habitats within the Mediterranean ecosystem. Moreover he intends to continue the work he started at the marine laboratory of Wimereux on the color of water and bioluminescence. Among the new projects, he’d like to undertake research about submarine geomorphology and its impact on the environment.
Nicolas Floc'h was in residence at the Camargo Foundation in January-February 2018, and will come back in August-September.
