Le Sous Bois

 

Le Cerceau

 

This series is the glance which I carry on the world of childhood. I rewrote like an intimate walk, the games the attitudes and the moments that I observed.

Attentive being has an observer on the edge of a mysterious world. Through the series a subtle draft of this period located between early childhood and the preadolescence takes shape.

 

Confidences

 

La Menace

 

A poetic world where lightness, loneliness and carefree mix. Playing between the attitudes of my daughters and my personal feelings I photographed their world by searching through them to rewrite my own childhood which I have few memories.

To translate this ephemeral period I  sometimes used the double exposure shooting.  The choice of the camera allowed me (Holga, device toy) seemed to me well adapted to the subject. I wanted as accurately recreate these moments that escape us in adulthood.

La Balancelle

 

This series is like a book in which each of us could recover  some memories  of  his childhood.
