About ‘Play with the street’:

This project is an opportunity to personalize the street as a playground.When I was walking to go to the office, I was searching for the right potential street scene. Every aspect was reviewed: a subtle play of the shadow, an intriguing geometry or an interesting color palette.

This series of pictures became over time a game between the street and me because these street scenes don’t exist. They are some imaginary representations about what I had in front of me. This way of deconstructing and rebuilding the streets to my wishes is my attempt to run away from the alienation of the routine.
