Paris has an old railway network that is no longer in use but has been opened for the public to explore, a bit like the high-line in NYC, but mostly underground. It is a surprisingly peaceful place in the middle of town to escape the everyday life, meet an occasional stranger, discover graffiti culture and get inspired by views that are usually not accessible to pedestrians.
There is something very cozy and reassuring, hearing Livia and Sandra talking, playing, giggling or just being together in another room while I go about my business doing something else, but knowing that the two most important people in my life are close to me.
No matter how hard you try not to change, once you spend a considerable amount of time living in a new city/country you will most likely adjust your style and attitude to the local environment.
Standing in a room designed by Peter Kogler for the Grand Palais in Paris reminded me of how we often forget to see the details around us because of all the distractions taking place at the same time.
Using directional light to focus on the elements that interest me in an image not only creates a certain mood but it also lets you fill in the unknown using your own imagination, just like the way we think about our next door neighbours and imagine what their lives might be all about.
There are situations in life when you want to be among people but at the same time don't want to be bothered or disturbed by anyone.
Although I prefer clarity over the everyday haze, it also creates a more dramatic contrast.
Watching Guillaume working on various different fashion designs made me understand how much talent and hard work is needed backstage to make this business go around.
Taking things as they come, being in the moment, playing and immersing in ones surrounding is what life is all about
When it's dark outside windows turn into one way mirrors that let me observe a subject without being noticed.
