24 🎈

Today is my birthday! I’m turning 24. I’m never at ease with growing up (can’t bring myself to say ‘growing old’ yet…) but I try more and more to turn this day that I used to dread into something great that will bring good memories later on. Usually, it involves a little escape in the […]

A festive walk in Seurasaari, Helsinki

Last year (2017), before arriving in Lapland to live and work there for 5 months, I did a tour of the Scandinavian capital cities with my friend Morgane. We visited Copenhagen, Stockholm (find my article about this trip here) and Helsinki in late November. I thought that now that the festive period is in full […]

Winter’s first embrace

      Winter calls, and nature listens. Frost comes and covers the dead leaves, ice comes and imprisons the waters. Winter comes and nature yields. Darkness comes and enfolds the world in twilight blue. Winter comes and enshrouds everything in its cold, silent, colourless embrace. The heather is not as bright as it used […]

Autumn stories #2 🕸️🕯️🌙

This autumn has been a strange one; as a shy creature hidding and trying not to be seen, it seemed to be holding on to the green leaves and the warm summer air as long as it could. In some parts of the country, it now feels as if autumn was there only for one […]

Autumn stories #1 🍁🎃🍂

Autumn is finally here, after a long and freaking hot summer that felt like forever. I’ve noticed that since a few years the seasons have been changing in a strange way: summer and winter seem to last longer and longer and spring and autumn seem to be over in a heartbeat, sometimes only lasting for […]

Dancing between spooky trees

This photo series dates back to early August but I wanted to wait for the weather to get a little bit more autumnal before showing it to you. Although it’s mid-September and the temperatures are still very summery here (+30°C pretty much eveyday… come on summer go away, it’s been like this since May!) my […]

A summer evening with Marion Kabac

One summer evening in August I met Marion, a French photographer, to snap a few shots by a pond surrounded by tall trees and purple flowers. A while ago we realised thanks to Instagram that we were sometimes taking pictures of the same exact places, so we decided to meet somewhere in our beautiful Auvergne. […]

A journey back in time into an old steam train

Earlier this month my friend Jade (@la.melancolique) and I went on a day trip into an old steam train through the countryside of my home, in Auvergne. I occasionnally love doing this, stepping and immersing myself into time, among old objects and devices that belong to another place and time. There’s something so special about […]

Summer portraits in a fireweed meadow

Summer has never been the best time of the year for me regarding inspiration and creativity. On the contrary, it usually marks my worst creative slump of the year. I can try whatever I want, but the hot and dry weather wears me out, and needless to say, here in France it’s almost always way […]
