This photo is completely coincidental. We could think of a staging, it is so harmonious. It was a real gift that was given to me. Shooting the couple lying on the ground, the other married couple entered the frame. And this girl also, immediately after, stopping to admire them with happiness.

Here these are destinies that cross and meet together. A young girl stops an instant her bicycle course to look back at this going to marry coople. And people all around are sharing this vibration of happiness, including this other probably refugees coople lying down on the ground. Each one seem to come from very different geographical horizons but sharing this evident human instant.

This image is issued from my collection « City Instants ».

Humanity has created cities and towns since Antiquity to gather there, to protect themselves, to find there commonly the facilities it needs, to exchange, to have fun there, in short to share there.

My images unearth sharing on every street corner; it is sometimes only about his idea or its evocation, even symbols.

The magic of the photo rests in this ability to freeze for eternity the unique and fleeting moment. So many moments, so many expressions gathered in a single framing. All these trajectories suddenly and for a short time combined. These thousand destinies then compose, through the eyes of the photographer, a great whole that exceeds everyone. Timeless rendering by black & white. This is how my City Instants are born.
