“These are simple moments from everyday life, but they are imbued with symbols, dreams, fantasy and romance which give them their meaning. Each viewer will experience his or her own sensations. Shapes appear on the rough stone, a ray of light cuts through the bleakness, revealing the color of the concrete. I reveal, perhaps unconsciously, my nostalgia through evocative portraits of my own lost generation. In our everyday life, there are moments of wonder... Walking, sleeping, taking pictures, we lose ourselves to better find ourselves. Waking up in unfamiliar places, sharing unforgettable looks, the games we play. Exaggerations, uneasy mornings, the touch of another that brings us back to life. Skin covered in bruises of uncertain origin. Rolling in flowers, sleeping on the hard floor of train stations. A knot in your stomach when you arrive at a some new airport. Flashes of heat, snowy nights, enveloping lights, giving chasing through the rain. I do not aspire to a life of carelessness, but to freedom and lightness, an innocence to be preserved.
