The project ”Promenade” is a portrait of a place, Promenade des Anglais. A beachwalk with tourists all year round but also a natural promenade for people resident in Nice.
What interests Joakim is the everyday life and the contrast between the people living in here and the visitors. The clash of the extravagance and the ordinary. The images were taken between 2012 and 2013.
The work was exhibited in october 2013 at Naugallery, Stockholm, Sweden.
