"Jadis & Naguère", a nostalgic journey
Jadis et Naguère" are two beautiful French words practically meaning the same, referring to the past, to bygone days.
The Story behind this series:
After moving from Brussels to Los Angeles, my eagerness, enhanced by the exploration of a new world, created excitement and thrill but was consuming and hard at the same time. Moving made me realise I was seeking a sensibility that was inherent to the old Europe, inherent to everything that had shaped my personality. These images symbolize my "coming-of-age" in 2 different worlds coming together. Therefore, in a way, they are portraits of my state of mind and are closest to my personality.
