Winter 2018 was particularly cold in Paris, where it does not necessarily snow every year. There, it was the case, in quantity, allowing me magnificent shots of reflections on the ground, like here. A way to highlight urban life, with a different look, from a point of view allowing to show this incredible city in a different light. As well as the way in which its inhabitants live there and share life.
This image is issued from my collection City Instants. My artistic choice is based on a framing taking a vertical, or horizontal plane, like here, as a vanishing point on a major surface, taking the viewer into a perspective with a strong depth of field.
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.
