- Photographer Arnaud Rinuccini unveils his latest series “Parallels”
- Arnaud Rinuccini‘s virtual gallery features all of his photographic works
- The miraculous chapel in Brittany’s Monts d’Arrée reopens to the public one year after the fire.
“I’m revisiting a place radically changed by the Fire that destroyed it, and I’m projecting onto it what it used to be. It’s a landscape that has flipped into its photographic negative, in a strange metamorphosis.
Like two parallel worlds, these photographs highlight the resonances between the two states. The interwoven fragments create a new fictional space, with its own perspective and its own rules, revealing all the more the transformations of a world undergoing profound changes.
Mount Saint-Michel, in the heart of Brittany’s Monts d’Arrée, suffered a massive fire in the summer of 2022 that destroyed the moorland and by chance spared the chapel on its summit. With the financial support of François Pinault’s Artemis Foundation, the entire site was restored by the Department of Finistère.”
Introduced to photography during a long stay in the United States as a teenager, Arnaud Rinuccini realizes that his professional life will go on with a camera in hand. The endless hours spent in the lab’s red light and the printing of hundreds of black and white films led him to study at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière.
Initially Arnaud turned to architectural photography, agreeing with the idea of creating an image entirely dedicated to the space it represents. At this stage, the Artist implements to his photographic practice the sensitive ability to highlight his subject by taking a back seat to it.
While he pursues his collaboration with interior design magazines, companies and architectural agencies based on his reliable author’s insight, Arnaud Rinuccini gradually feels the urge to create a work of his own. The landscape thus provides him with ways of illustrating the relation between memory and imagination. Impacted by the evocative power of artists such as Debussy, Nicolas de Staël, or Georges Rousse, he loves photography for its amazing ability to open different worlds, to go past the limits of a simple reproduction of our surroundings.
Arnaud Rinuccini’s works are regularly exhibited and are part of private collections in France.
Arnaud Rinuccini’s photographic work focuses on the definition of memories. Indeed, the artist wonders about the things we keep and the things we forget, the things that are altered or transformed when we are reminded of an event.
Arnaud Rinuccini stands out with his photographic works of landscapes starting with fragments of reality recomposed into a whole. The resulting image combines moments, superimposes sensations, points out mistakes, shifts, inversions, that reconstitute our memories and stimulate our imagination.
Both contemplative and poetic, Arnaud Rinuccini’s images emphasize his taste for natural spaces.

Renaissance of the Monts d’Arrée chapel
Last summer, over 2,000 hectares of the Monts d’Arrée in Brittany were destroyed. The Mont Saint-Michel site in Brasparts was completely devastated and its vegetation charred. At the top of this hill, 1250 feet above sea level, a chapel miraculously escaped the flames.
One year after the still mysterious fire, the miraculous chapel in Brittany’s Monts d’Arrée has reopened to the public!
Built in 1674, this religious building has undergone extensive restoration work, including the roof, framework and walls, as well as stained-glass windows and even liturgical furnishings. The financial support of François Pinault has made all this possible. It has thus contributed 550,000 euros to the restoration of the chapel and the 70 hectares of fragile natural spaces surrounding it, much to the delight of the many lovers of this emblematic site.
The chapel bell is about to ring again!
The Finistère Departmental Council is delighted with the work, which has made it possible to “reinstall elements of the chapel that had disappeared, such as the bell, which will ring again”.
