Renowned lighthouse photographer Jean Guichard developed a love for the ocean’s beautiful ferocity during travels through the Atlantic and Arctic with the French Navy in 1970. Guichard, who was originally a respected photojournalist, became captivated by lighthouses, keepers and their treacherous battles with the elements. His most famous series of photos depicts a lighthouse and its keeper seconds before they are consumed by a colossal wave. Guichard took many of his awe-inspiring lighthouse photos when the coast of France was being battered by one of the most violent storms in history.
