the poetry of ordinary moments - by la mélancolique

"photography as a cure for melancholy, the poetry of ordinary moments. 

—i have, for a very long time now, decided to use a big T when i write the word « time ». since my childhood it's been one of my main preoccupations and my first source of being in a state of melancholy. the moments disappear as quickly as they appeared in our lives. they turn into past, obsolete, forgotten moments. photography came to me as a cure for nostalgia, a way to capture these everyday fragments so they could remain intact somewhere. i choose the insignificant to turn it into poetry, that's how I would like to summarize my photos, small photographic poems, the poetry of the banal."

la mélancolique is a photographer living in paris, france.
