The Mediterranean city of Toulon borders a magnificent coastline, in turn very urban, seaside and even, as here, completely picturesque and sublimely authentic aspects. This district is unique. It is a small hidden harbor, called Anse Mejean, completely heavenly : transparent water, initially a small fishing port, today a marina with a few low and simple houses in a family Italian atmosphere. Here, on a beautiful winter day, the cove revives its origins : the fishing rod is out, and contemplation in the spotlight. I love the opposite, on the other side of the shore with this visitor, biker helmet in hand, who orchestrates a virtual meeting between these two men, in a timeless and soothing atmosphere.

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.
