I shot these document tiny moments on a recent beach tripe to South Padre Island.

Everything is so tiny at the beach, if you look. – Katy Shayne

Small movements and small shadows cast by a harsh Texas sun. I dug my hands in the sand and I do not think I had ever felt so small myself, with my cheek smashed against the crystal-like grains and my eyes at sea level.

I saw something this trip as I lay on my back with a glass sky blanketing and shining and swallowing light. I saw myself and through myself.

We started the session with a few classic portraits, over which I layered, through double exposure, the preparatory notes of the shoot. Using the same technique, colorful monochromes taken from a screen flood the image with intense colours.

The second part is a spontaneous composition applied directly to the body of the model, mixing painted surfaces, informal-without any function, and various everyday products found in a supermarket.

One could see a subtle wink towards the Arte Povera movement or the principles of Marcel Duchamp – it is the promotion of certain attitudes and the action that take centre stage, more than the final result.

Other graphic and yet common, banal elements are superposed over the primary image (error messages, loading bar) – appropriations of photographs form Hiroshi Sugimoto’s « On the beach $raquo; book.

It also represents a summer’s tale, cliches that seem to be coming out of Jodorowski’s El Topo or a spaghetti western, finally just another way to pass the time one scorching Paris afternoon.

This project was made in an attempt to capture the feeling of tension.

There is a blurriness between wanting to leave, wanting to stay, being in love and feeling hate. I often explore anxiety and loneliness in my work, but this was a new frontier to explore with Kaiman something she was going through at the time (as well as myself in a different sense). She was moving away, I was staying as I always stay. Perhaps I am ready for change, but the tension when you are about to make a push towards a choice can be hard to put a finger on.

That was the feeling I wanted to capture, a manic happiness and a serene sense that feeling those emotions reminds you that you are indeed alive.
