Souvenirs

Pensées sereines, instants capturés dans le temps. Iconographie gravée, éternelle. Un aperçu rappelle une odeur soudaine – un goût vous fait entrer, et vous emporte en arrière. Instants cycliques cristallisés dans le temps, à partir d’une simple idée. Une étincelle de reconnaissance vous coupe le souffle. A
travers l’imagerie gardée dans le temps, nous pouvons partager et dérouler notre passé. Dans la beauté et la compréhension, que des étrangers partageront, intimement liés – ne s’étant jamais rencontrés.
