I started this little project last year when Alli was living her last week in Barcelona after spending there some years. I thought of the people I care in Barcelona, and how most of them are artist, at least in their mind and way of life.
Barcelona has been for me my highway to the "artist world". Coming from a small town in the ouest of France, and then studying in various middle size city in France. My first "real life" work after my master degree was in Barcelona. I accepted this work because I knew how Barcelona was thanks to an internship I did there before during my studies.
It the kind of city who makes me live 100%. Sometimes,it is going to fast. A place where I now have my very close friend. And thanks to this city, I have been able to work on beautiful and amazing artistic projects. For me it is this magical place where the universe sent me all the people I needed to meet.
But since the Corona virus crisis, and the quarantine is still not over yet when I am writing those words, things are more uncertain than ever. I am about to take the decision to take a break from Barcelona, see what else the world has to offer me. Maybe the best place on earth for me now right now is to be back to that small town in the west of France? Who knows? Barcelona gave me the strengths and the creative energy I needed. Now, I feel that any decision I take, any place I choose to live. I will keep this beautiful energy.
Here, is a small visual story of an artist. An artist who spent some years in Barcelona. And was about to live to an other city when I took those photos... The story of Alli in August 2019:
