Under the full moon, Pau-based French photographer Xavier Dumoulin sets up his camera in high altitude locations to capture long exposure photographs of mountain villages in his photographic series Incandescences. Surrounded by nature, the villages light up as if on fire, snaking through the landscape like lava. It took Dumoulin more than a year to round up the project, which he presents unedited. It is a dramatic contrast of activity and serenity, of presence and solitude.
