Le Bassin Romantique, first photobook of Nicolas Seurot's project Visions passéistes [Old-fashioned visions], is a series of images created around the Bassin d'Arcachon (or Arcachon Bay), between Bordeaux and the Atlantic Ocean, in southwest France.

Nicolas Seurot, a connoisseur of the art of painting, and a dilettante painter himself, developed a technique that allows him to create a very peculiar atmosphere in his images, somewhat old-fashioned or antiquated, and quite close to the feel of paintings. The colors of the bay, the soft tones, the texture and the simple and self-evident composition of the images create a series that strikes the eye through its simple beauty and timelessness.

Nicolas Seurot will be signing his book at L'Ascenseur Végétal on Thursday, October 7th, 2021.

The book is available in a choice of two covers : "Shore" or "Tree Branch" (see photos).
