I'm presenting my series about the beach as a space of exception, where humans engage in activities that contradict or cancel usual behaviours (wearing clothes, working, socialising), suggesting a primordial space, of connection to origins​.

From the intro:

Series depicting a beach, the same, year after year. Far from Martin Parr's saturated beaches, the buzz of Coney Island or Luigi Ghirri's Mediterranean melancholy, this is the North Atlantic at the intersection between cold and heat, windy shores and tropical quietness. The beach is the same but it changes with the weather, the tides, the seasons. It changes throughout the years, the centuries, the millenniums. Humans are a small part of this history and yet it feels as if it was here, where the shore meets the sea and the sea touches the sky, that humans were truly born.
