Two and a half years ago my doctor told me I have a Vitamin D deficiency. No surprise – I lived in a tiny apartment in Paris with almost no direct sunlight. So I began to pay attention to the small amount of light that did enter my flat. It was just a sliver for maximum 3 hours a day in the summer. And I began to photograph it.
It was a very quiet process and I would get completely absorbed in the moment, watching the sliver of light grow and shrink as the sun passed through the sky, watching it change shape as I moved the camera and changed perspective. It was actually interesting to shoot such a basic simple subject matter, and because of its simplicity it became almost like a meditation. The resulting images are similar to each other, but all have differences (although some very subtle).
I've decided to turn these images into a self published photo book. This book isn't about a huge grand idea, rather its purpose is to show a slice of life – just a small experience of a guy living in Paris.
It will be presented as an unbound collection of prints. Not a traditional book format, but almost like a folder from which the prints can be removed to look at. Here are some test prints as an example.
