des nuages, I

from my window, I
Reims, Summer 2016

Chinon Handyzoom 5001, Fujifilm Superia 200
In 2016 I rediscovered the analog camera that my parents bought me when I was a kid: the awkward looking Chinon Handyzoom. Almost 20 years after, the battery was still in good shape, and I immediately started a series about clouds, all taken from my window. There was a roll inside the camera, and if the pictures taken 20 years ago were all gone, the remaining shots became all covered in a pink-yellow-gold haze.
