Illustrative work in the north of France

A professional project meant to create the stock images of a publishing house, newly established to document the Picardie region of France.

As we were a handful photographers involved, the setpoint was to focus on popular centers of interest and to give them a fresh new look. Even it was still our point of view, it had to comply with what local people are already connected, in other word their patrimony. Sometimes people live next to or know about for so long that they lose interest. Therefore, our approach was to bring a new kind of vision on things that are close and show how valuable they are, so to preserve attention and memory.
