The Caves and Karst Art Contest by the European Speleological Federation FSE; winners announced on the 4th June 2022

Roustan, Christian


I am 59 years old and I live in the south of France in a limestone region with a lot of caves. I am an electronic engineer in a small medical company, for me photography is only a hobby.
I am a self-taught photographer and I started caving when I was 14 years old. At the time of silver film I made several slideshows to share my passion of the underground world.
Time passes, and I converted to digital. But my passion for this dark world is still here. Now, I can’t imagine going underground without carrying my camera.
My only ambition is to bring back some images to share the passion for this world that I particularly like.

“Feelings about caves”, 2021

Some words and feeling about caves and caving. By manipulating photos I want to create an unreal world to express my feelings about the underground world.
