The Blue Shark Motel

The Blue Shark Motel makes the reader travelling. The images show how the owner of a motel lost in the American countryside is intrigued by the arrival of an elegant and urban woman, whereas the text tells how the woman ended up on the road. Very influenced by the films noir made by Howard Hawks, Anthony Mann and Orson Wells, I wanted to make my book a nod to this universe. By alternating between large rigid images and the decomposition of movements, I tried to work the rhythm of the book so that its cinematographic aspect is even more revealed.

He Remembers

He remembers is an adult tale that reports the story of a man who would be condemned to live longer than those he loves and who transforms those people he cherishes into objects to keep them with him. Each object in the apartment would become one of those transformed, materialized souls described in the text. Metaphorically, it is also talking about the death, the right of inheritance as well as our relationship to others and material goods. 

L'envol

L’envol tells the story of a young girl who moves in a metropolis to become a ballerina. The story is told by an external narrator who spies on the dancer. Thus the heroine is both anonymized - she blends into the daily life of the city - and yet under the spotlight because the narrator sees noone but her. I wanted to highlight the link between the city and the dance: rigorous and expressive.
