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