"This book come from several short trip I made at Marseille, during spring to autumn 2011, from may to octobre. I was there first to visit a friend, but, a bit suffocated with Paris - a city that I love above all - I came also with the idea to see the sea, perhaps with Plossu's work in mind. So I took with me an old nikon with a 50mm, a lens that I was almost never using at that moment. I like the pictures I took these first 4 days so much - very different from the one I was making in Paris - that I decided to come down to Marseille every month as long as there will be light. This book is a selection of the images I took during theses moments, far away from the work I was doing in Paris. And that's why I was mainly aiming at the horizon, the light, the sea - more than toward the city itself. I came there to be in peace and see far away. Marseille looked to me as a blacony over the sea, and that's what I wanted to remember from it, and to show"
