Entry Description

This series is inspired by Paris, a city full of dualities, unceasingly chaotic everything. Failure and success, modern and classic, kindness and rudeness, only the city stands still, like holding its breath each morning to take the agitation of everyday. Constant as the movement, the sun plays its game of lights and shadows with this "concrete jungle", drawing on every corner of the city as it pleases. Light and shadow, so dependent on each other, like good and bad, like sweet and sour, like Paris. Series done using analog processes, no digital manipulation except for scanning and dust cleaning.
