BUDS: LA VIE TRAN-QUILLE


ART DIRECTION — 2019


"These photographs were made between January 30th of 2016 and September 8th of 2018. The idea was to document my closest group of friends with my phone camera and present a series of photographs that heavily rely on its chronology, as if to tie them closely with the passage of time.
The title is borrowed from a lost cap of a friend of mine (both the cap and my friend appear in the photographs).
I liked the idea of referencing something that was lost because time is also passing us by faster than we would like to admit.
Plus, the expression “La vie tranquille” fits quite perfectly with the moments depicted."
