Growing up in the mountains, this view seemed so natural to me. But returning to the same areas every year, I was struck by how we have adjusted our gaze of what natural is. On one side, snow has been altered by our warming climate, and on the other, by the physical human footprint.
These little things we carve out for our own pleasure, amusement. Even when the print seems minimal, we’ve shaped nature for our own use. Snow, another raw material to exploit.


In that series, I was interested in the sociology of places such as art fairs or museums. The way we interact with Art, the cultural and emotional relationship, but also the world of privilege. The social distinction that Art creates depending on how you embrace it, on how you value it. As a profitable business, a work of public interest, a sophisticated decoration, a cultural trophy or as a intimate experience. In the same way that your posture or attitude will give indication of your social status, owing a piece of Art or going to an Art exhibition positions you in the society.


After a few days of rain, the sun was finally back but the puddles had remained. At sunset, I noticed a huge cloud floating above the warehouses and over the trees growing in concrete. Its' reflection in the puddle was magical; the sharp contrast of orange with blue. They morphed that ordinary grey area by catching the colours of the sky. The tarmac finally becoming a canvas for nature to use.

These photos were taken in August 2018, in Chichester, England.
