"Through this series, I sought to express the city as a whole and in all its originality. The city itself is the main actress. A Deauville a thousand miles from its glamorous and media image. This series thus includes a documentary dimension because it retraces through its architecture a unique history as well as a history common to all cities. The houses which make Deauville famous, but also other more classic, more ordinary buildings. These houses are also inhabited in different ways. Year round, for the season, or for certain occasions. So this is the portrait of a city which lives at several rhythms according to the seasons and generations. to photograph in the form of morning strolls because it is at this time that the light is the softest and the most mysterious. Perhaps time has stopped and yet it is quite the opposite happening Deauville. "
