LA PLAGE





Whether we want it or not, every photograph is a memory. Not only a memory of the things, places or people represented, but also a memory of who we were when we pressed the shutter button -a memory of how we looked at the world, before. I think I started "photography" after a bad breakup; I realized that the feeling of loneliness made the physical world around change, shapes and colors. Things that were soft or neutral became sharper, threatening. I understood they would keep evolving with time, so I decided to record the evolution. This is probably why, at the beach, I never photograph the sea, wide angle, full frame. It is one of the places in the world that means life, balance, and stillness, whatever is in my mind. No evolution there.

I can only imagine how well you write in French, because I can't even write as well as you do in English.

Je laisse mon commentaire sur les photos de la plage car c'est un endroit magique et plein d'espoir. Les photos sont toutes magnifiques et je ne me sens pas capable de les critiquer... Ce sont des moments, des émotions que tu nous livres, que tu nous fais partager. Je ne sais pas si ce sont les textes qui subliment les photos ou l'inverse mais il y a une alchimie parfaite entre les deux...
Je ne te dirais qu'une chose : merci pour tout...
