COLOURING OUR LIFE
PALETTE is a all-year-round photographic project between Maud Mignard and I. Since August 2019, each month, we have been composing series of 4 photos around one specific colour, following a prompt we decided when we made the project up. We have been posting them on Social Networks every 1st day of the month.
Around each colour, we are following each other in our respective lives. It is en excellent exercise for exploring out of our comfort zone under time constraint, as well as sharping our observation skills and trying to create an harmonious composition with photos taken at different times during a same month.
I met Maud through Instagram, at the end of 2016, while we both were living in Portsmouth, United Kingdom. I was instantaneously touched by the beauty of her feed. Funny thing is that we both contacted each other at the same time, and, shortly afterwards, we managed to meet in person in a "photo walkshop" organised by Strong Island UK. She is such good company, and, rapidly, our mutual interest in conceptual photography led us to meet regularly for informal photowalks around our adopted city. Over the few months we spent photo-wandering together, on the top of making a true and wonderful friend, I find my photography skills improved a lot and it seems obvious to me that her influence has been crucial in my work. She went back to her home in French South Brittany mid-2017, and, in order to keep alive the link that bonds us, we decided to make up some photo-projects that we could carry on together despite the distance. PALETTE is our third shared project after ALPHABRIT and BY WORD OF MONTH.
