« Première Neige », the First Photo Book by Jérémie Villet

The Project in a Few Words 


I am excited to present you my “Première Neige” project, which captures the essence of six solo winterings in a wild and white world. 
In this first book, I take you on an imaginary journey through a real world. My unfiltered photographs bring you the most breath-taking moments of that immaculate universe. 

This beautiful 100-page book, printed in France on a quality paper and manufactured in an exclusive workshop, will feature 80 photos.

Who am I?

alt

While kids my age dreamed of becoming firefighters or footballers, I always wanted to be a wildlife photographer. A fascination that now takes me every winter to the Northern countries, where I face extreme conditions to capture images of an untamable wildlife. 


Awarded the Wildlife Photographer of the Year, I travel alone through the white deserts of the northern hemisphere with my skis, pulka and telephoto lens, convinced that, somewhere on Earth, our imagination becomes reality. 

The Book: a Quality Artistic Project 

"Première Neige" will be a book of art photographs, printed in France at the Manufacture des Deux-Ponts, on quality paper from Fedrigoni (FSC label). Here are its main characteristics: 

  • 100 pages 
  • 80 photos in square format 
  • Woven cover with hot stamping 
  • Printed in France 

Les Others – a collective with consistent track record in printing publications – assist me in the design, production and manufacturing of this book. They take charge of the entire project to produce a high-quality book, including format, choice of paper and best printing methods.

Allocation of funds

 

By pre-ordering your copy, you help the project to carry out and support the fundraising campaign, that will be used to fund the different stages: page layout, paper ordering, printing, shipping costs…
I will donate 1€ per book sold to the WWF association, which has been working since 1973 to protect animals, such as those you will admire in this book.

See you very soon,
