« Abysse » is the French word for « deep sea ». Trough this photo series, I wanted to imagine what it would be like if our civilisation was covered by the sea. In our urban spaces, the car is an omnipresent element and a symbol of technology, something that will remain as a proof of our contemporary civilisation.
I did this photo series, Lucky Me 🙂, this year during my second trip to Japan. I was intrigued by all this “kawaii” characters and mascots that you can find in everyday life. They were like my “guides” during my stay and my entry ticket to discover a fun and colourful side of the Japanese society. These characters are a childhood reminiscence (the famous Hello Kitty), but also a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional yokai (spirit creatures present in folklore and art). At some point, the daily objects became also a character in itself.
