Japon Flottant (Floating Japan) brings together a collection of photographs taken in October 2018.
An effervescent but at the same time relaxing and inspiring country, the title refers to this impression of detachment one can feel there, mostly due to the gap between reality and interpretation. This series presents fifteen black-and-white photographs taken over a two-week period, and a journey from Tokyo to the south of the country. This seventh visit to Japan, together with my girlfriend, inspired me these “floating” and silent images.
