Getaway to Deauville

"For Deauville, I decided to create objects related to the main themes that make up the prestige of the city - the beach, the casino, equestrian competitions and Norman houses - and then photograph them in different places at the like a collage. These places are thus confronted with the plastic interpretation that I made of it and become, in a way, the studio of my still lifes. PS: it's a bit kitsch as a title but at the same time I find that my photos are colorful and vivid, not “headache.” A bit like a woman who would escape for a weekend in Deauville to play roulette in her pretty shoes and wander with her Norman bag admiring the flowers.
