The street

I discovered everday living in France in downtown Montpellier. The first pictures that inspired this whole series where taken one Feburary morning after a storm. This series helped me begin to fnd my very own style.
For this series I used found objects in the streets as improvised canvases (pieces of wood, cardboard, a window shutter... I painted pictures I took in these same streets. In these photographs I looked for expressions of this singular light, paint that peeled showing history in the layers over the years and the resulting texture, all of this bathed in this southern light, particularly on the cream colored local stones, almost gold.
