Marseille - in a hundred ways I've tried to photograph this city I moved in a couple of years ago - large format, medium format, 24x36, colors and black and white - but always, I found something was missing. One day, as I was carrying my leica with a roll of kodak portra, I made a picture, a little by chance I guess. I remember the exact moment when I made this picture (the one I call "1/3" with the girl in a shadow on the right, a man in a shadow on the left and one in the light in the middle). I was literally struck from head to toe, feeling so exicted that I screamed of joy ! I knew I had found a way to photograph Marseille at last...
The narrative aspect has narrowed since them. For this project i'm looking to talk about the whole range of human emotions : love, sadness, loneliness, illusion, relationships, etc.
For this long term project I have chosen to work with a leica M6, a 35 mm lens and Kodak Portra 400.
This grant would allow me to carry on this project and bring it to another level !
Thanks so much for the attention...
