the beginnings of a new personal project

Tentatively titled, “we don’t know what the fuck we’re doing but that’s okay”.

This series, which I’ll be working on over the course of the 2017/2018 academic year is inspired, above all, by youth. By the stage my friends and I are at at this point in our lives… attending uni, learning how to ‘adult’ , how to form healthy, lasting relationships and set proper boundaries, discovering our passions and exploring potential career paths… in short, there’s quite a bit (and when I say ‘quite a bit’, I mean ‘a hella lot’) of uncertainty and so… we take it one day at a time. Because it’s all we can do, right? Right. (Also, I’d like to make it very clear that I myself do not smoke or drink, but the vast majority of my friends do and you know what? So what? Your life, your body, you do you/whatever the fuck you WANT. I’ll be tucking myself into bed before 10pm, though, thanks.)

These are spontaneous portraits. Intimate, sincere moments. Real life.

All captured on 35mm film.

I intend to share 99% of the pictures I take for this project on the blog in order to document them, but the final series will most likely be comprised of only 15 or 20 of the very-very best.

I’m so eager to continue creating! Can’t wait to share more…

le début d’un nouveau projet personnel

J’ai attrapé un rhume affreux il y a quelques jours, du coup je n’ai pas vraiment envie de traduire ce que j’ai écrit ci-dessus en français… heureusement,  j’avais déjà écrit pas mal sur le concept de ce projet à l’école la semaine dernière donc je vais recopier tout ça (dont je n’avais pas envie de traduire en anglais non plus) ici.

J’aimerais travailler sur une série de portraits intimes et spontanés de mes amis. Je veux que toutes les images soient prises dans une manière très naturelle et je ne vais pas faire poser les modèles. Je pense emporter mon appareil photo argentique partout pendant des mois pour capturer des moments sincères. 

Je veux prendre ces images sans subjectivité et que tous les moments soient très honnêtes et fidèles à la réalité… comme si je n’avais pas un appareil avec moi/comme si j’avais pris toutes les photos avec mes yeux. Je pense être éloignée des images pour qu’elles puissent avoir une qualité presque documentaire. Mais pas trop éloignée parce que je veux montrer mon amitié avec ces personnes et ce qu’elles soient surtout quand ils ne s’attendent pas que je vais prendre leur photo. 

Je pense réaliser toutes les photos avec un appareil photo argentique ainsi que des appareils photos jetables. J’essayerai peut-être d’en prendre quelques unes avec un polaroïd, mais je ne suis pas encore sûre. 

À bientôt ! J’ai hâte de créer plus pour ce projet…

Abby

    ahhh yes, the quintessential uni experience! I love how you’re capturing it-it’s very real and honest and yet super cool? But seriously FRENCH PEOPLE STOP SMOKING lol

      Thanks so, so much, Kayle! I’ve never done a project like this before, so it’s so nice to hear positive feedback. 🙂 And girrrrl, I know! Convincing them to quit, though? Impossible, at least in France!

    I love how candid all these photos are! You’ve definitely captured youth! Ahh so uni. Tons of small, important memories 🙂 Also loving the Christmas Spongebob pants. And the bottles and flowers 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Thanks, Audrey! These are all the little things worth remembering… I’m going to be so glad to have captured them someday. <3

    I loved scrolling through these photos. They’re so youthful and really reminded me of the kind of blurry, messy energy my friends and I had during university – so it was quite lovely to scroll down to your writing and see how much it chimed with what I had been thinking. I hope you enjoy the rest of the paragraph – I look forward to seeing it!

      Thanks so much, Laila! xx
