Trouville,  Deauville, Cabourg, Houlgate, en hiver...
Cette sĂ©rie est rĂ©alisĂ©e en argentique avec un appareil lomographique  moyen-format.  Ă€ travers ce boitier Ă  la simplicitĂ© apparente qui rappelle les premiers appareils photos amateurs ludiques, on y retrouve le charme dĂ©suet des stations balnĂ©aires  du dĂ©but de siècle dernier. On imagine alors flâner mĂ©lancoliquement aristocrates et Ă©crivains cĂ©lèbres... Loin du brouhaha de nos Ă©tĂ©s contemporains,  oĂą ce hors-saison nous transporte Ă©galement hors du temps.
 

Trouville, Deauville, Cabourg, Houlgate, in winter... 
This series is made in silver with a medium-format lomographic device.  Through this box with its apparent simplicity, which recalls the first amateur cameras, we find the outdated charm of the seaside resorts of the beginning of the last century. We imagine then to stroll melancholy aristocrats and famous writers.... Far from the hubbub of our contemporary summers, where this off-season also transports us out of time.
