Photo set - Quarantine Postcards

Dear parents… It is Easter time. We had planned to go to the mountains to celebrate my mother’s birthday.

48h in Bangkok, Thaïland… It was back in India, on a Monday in February.

Photo set - Musée d’Art Moderne

April comes around, and with it, its load of spring sun. People start going out and mixing up with all-weather tourists. Like cats, they sit in the sun and enjoy the pleasure of looking up and see a still pale but beautiful blue sky, instead of the usual uniform cement-like lid that rules Paris life nearly all […]

Photo set - The Cliff

2010, on a Saturday evening. We drove, two friends and me, to the Petit Minou lighthouse, at the end of Brest Harbor, in Brittany. After that, we went separate ways. But the lighthouse, the waves and the cloudy sky were the beginning of it all. Nikon FM3A , Nikkor 180mm – Rollei ATP1.1
