Travelling Still - Photographic Meditations From inspiring quotes, people and structures, bound to life and positive thinking... Let's build an experimental photographic project !


The project

Travelling Still  - Photographic Meditations

- Inspiring quotes

- Inspiring people and structures, bound to life and positive thinking


Based on these two complementary materials, experiment freely with photographic tools :


double exposure, overexposure,overcoloration

reprocess printings, mix different technics, pair images, expremient with fuzziness, blur, grain,, erasement, textures, reflections, saturations, out of shot framing

And keep a journal while experimenting.

A few exemple of the alternative technics used.


Technical means : Holga, pinhole, digital... to name a few, but without them being a limitation.

The main idea is to go back to the basics, to feel free to experiment without boundaries in the artistic field, without having to fit in the standards. The only limit is for the photographer to feel in harmony. To make sense with oneself,


The motos for this project are openings and bounds.


Bounds to oneself, to the world, to the others, to let the feeling and intuition speak.


Keywords : gentleness, bounds, light, spirituality, creativity, art, freedom, let go, birth, renewal, motionless travel, this very moment, conscience, grace, stability, trust, enthusiasm, balance, peace, bedazzlement.

I organized this projet to be able to spend enough time on a regular basis on this reseach, to make room for creativity and meetings.


This is the beginning of a new photographic cycle. This will collect artistic material, necessary to canvas editors, attend contests and artists’ residencies.


The first step of experimentation, the collect of artistical material is right now, and it’s up to you (it’s in your hands).


Main steps :

collect adresses and inspiring quotes, list contacts Photo shoots and experimentations based on these materials Keep a journal of the photo shoots and experiences Edit journal and design the book send compensations to the supporters : postcards, screenshots, photoprints, book with the book, look for editors and artists residencies.

A few quotes :

«Be the change that you want to see in the world» Gandhi «Enjoy the present moment» Thich Nhat Hahn


Meeting inspiring people and places :

Buddhist meditation, learning to love oneself at «la maison de l’Inspir», noisy le grand Come back to natural cycles of life, attending shared gardens in Paris and Seine St Denis support organic agriculture with «La ruche qui dit Oui», Paris and Seine St Denis Think and act on a daily basis with «Mouvement Colibri» Kamala, yoga teacher in Paris (yoga means to be bound) Parks maintaining fallow lands at Neuilly sur Marne and Bagnolet Tai-chi teachers, gardeners, natural medecines, organic agriculture, botanists, nonviolent communication teachers...


Your good inspiring adresses are welcome



Who am I :

I studied art and  I work a lot in the cultural field.


From an aesthetic point of view I’m fascinated by colours, I like sketching and taking out of frame pictures.

I value gentleness, trust and respect.

I’m looking for simple and poetic images.


My professional backgroud followed 2 main cycles :

the first one was very close to the day-to-day life in the 18th disctrict in Paris

the second, deeply commited in the performing arts, and contemporary circus

the third cycle starts right now, based on ecology and spitiruality, on being aware of one’s acts, on bounds, on alternative medicines and on relationships with others

Why fund it?

What will the funds collected be used for ?


This money will help me to dedicate time to this project and to pay for the photograhic fees :


The CLARA co-op belongs to a social solidarity movement.

The co-op needs 3420€ to be able to put me on a salary for 36 days (that’s 3 days a week for 3 months), this amount of time being dedicated only to this project.

The films, scans and prints budget is 975€.

The total budget for this project is 3420€+975€=4396€

I will pay the counterparts expenses.



I’m available for this project now, before Fall, so now is the time when your contribution can make this project happen.

If the money collected exceeds the goal, I’ll be able to spend more time on this project and on the edition of a book.

au succès de ton projet, Florence!
La créativité est partout. Elle se trouve là où on la cherche, où on l'espère. Et quand on désespère de la découvrir, et qu'on se lamente de notre défaite, elle se laisse d'un coup apercevoir. Elle était là, sous notre nez, et attendait qu'on veuille bien la regarder. Et nous voilà rafraîchi.
Bonjour Florence, j'espère de tout coeur que ton projet aboutira. " Le sage peut découvrir le monde sans franchir sa porte. Il voit sans regarder, accomplit sans agir " Lao Tseu ;)
