City life is very exiting and full of promises. I think I could not live without the city... But I feel so much overwhelmed. Everything In the city is made for you to be as entertained as you want... So you do things: go for a run, go for groceries, buy things, eat and drink in a coffeeshop, Meet friends... When you are at home, you are not afraid to be alone because your smartphone is next to you, at any second something very exiting can happen, you wouldn't like to miss it... And then there is Netflix, podcasts... Tones of things to avoid being by yourself, and feel the emptiness.
Those photo where taken during two days when I decided to disconnect totally and went alone at a Airbnb lost in the country side with not wifi (it was very important)! And yes... I was afraid But I could feel lengths of empty hours and this is magical...

Four little Stories...
Last September I printed my first booklet of photographies. It has a shape of a small notebook... The kind of notebook you take with you to write your everyday sorrows and joys. In my photo book, there is almost no words, but it is telling four little story....
The Empty coffee place and Mirva
I love the feeling of being a totally stranger in a coffee place. Even if I come back to the same place, I am usually very discreet. I sit somewhere in a corner, where I can watch from the window people passing by in the street outside of the coffee. Here am I, with my computer, a book sometime, and something to drink. I don't really come for the drink anyway...
For this very improvised photo shoot with my friend Mirva, I was trying to express that feeling of my time in coffee places. Something simple.
That day it was just Mirva and I in this coffee we use to meet. I had my camera with me. I decided to get something from this moment.
OUT of the chaos
Sometime it can be a chaos around us, within us. How to get out of this chaos? Is it real or just in our mind?
And then, there this this magical encounter... It can be with someone else, or maybe a deeper connection with oneself
