COMING SOON: LONDON SERIE
We spend some days in London in spring. I’ll share my vision of this wonderful city in a little serie.
One regret I have is not having enough time to take photo in each city I visit. 3-4 days generally… and I have to come back to the ordinary life.
Some shoot from Alcatraz. Triyng to render the strange feeling that haunts you during the visit.
Bodie Ghost Town
Some pics taken in August, in the evening. Nice light.
Coming soon: Snapshots from Bodie, CA
All is in the tittle 😉
Some film photography inside 😉
Since I came back from USA, I struggle to organize pictures taken there. So many places and people met that it’s hard to find a link between them. But day after day, editing progress and some ideas are emerging.
I realise that a « road trip » is essentially made of… road. I think I spent about 20 hours inside a car during my 2 weeks here. Being inside a car, a plane, an airport can be frustrating because you’re cut from the outside where stand your subject; well, MY subject. So I realise I took a lot of pictures from this strange point of view. Todd Hido has done it before and I don’t have his talent; but using this perspective is interesting for me because you’re not part of the reality you attempt to capture. You’re somewhere else; like in a busy airport overhanging a desert runway; like in an air conditioned car driven across the burning Death Valley. You’re not connected to the subject as if you were outside.
Something I like too is to be able to appear on the scene without using the « selfie » thing; only using reflective properties of the glass and the light blocking properties of my body (well I’m not a ghost). It may seems weird to many people because very simple but I think it’s kind of magic:
You’re inside, you’re alone. You capture the world outside and you still can be part of this capture.
