«They [The mountains] live in deep time in a way that we do not. Behind and beyond the mountains, stretch eons too vast for us to comprehend. They were here long before we were even dreamed of. They watched us arrive. They will watched us leave.»

Rocks existed before us and it will remains after us. A rock is a strates of history. The colours of a stones is defined by its mineral constituents which depend on the original sediment and the geological history. All this historical strates and the vastness it is fascinate myself.

Most of the time, when I hiked, I came back with stones that I collect. In the same idea of a photograph, a stone is a trace: a trace of an experience and of what remains, a trace of time. During a week and half, I went to the south of France, I went hiking everyday. I was taking with vehemence a lot of photographs.

I realised a large book with theses images to convey this fascination to the reader.
