With family and friends, they come to Deauville to spend a day at the beach. Stepping out of the ordinary for a short while, the energy of the sea is overwhelming. It’s simply blue everywhere, and the glance of others matter less here.

The boundaries of the Parisian ring road have been swept away by the tide. It was about time. This series was made in July 2017 within the framework of a residency in Deauville for Planche(s) Contact festival.
