Aude Le Barbey - A QUIET MEDITERRANEAN JOURNEY

Dec 30, 2021

While the world was at a stop during the pandemic, I was travelling along the Mediterranean coast and decided to maintain this nomad way of life for a few weeks. Adapting to local rules and new restrictions, I wandered around as the crisis evolved. Because of the unprecedented situation, it happened to be a very slow journey, giving me the opportunity to take more time to create and photograph what was in my immediate surroundingsā€¦ The photographic series associates poetic contemplations and still life shots composed with naturals findings. I felt deeply inspired by the emptiness, the calm, and the light of the Mediterranean Sea. I think a certain feeling of tranquility emerges from this series as this quiet journey happened to serve as a break from the anxiety surrounding us at the time, a halt in the frenzy of the movement, and a way to reflect upon about the creative process.
