Gaёlle Simon is one of our most favourite impressively talented photographer from Nice who fall in love with it transforming emotions into pictures.
On 20th of April her exhibition "Dream of elsewhere" was opened at the National Theatre of Nice. You can visit it till mid of June.
Gaёlle changes perception and discoveres the city from another angle: showing it has something of the most different parts of the world. She shared some of her thoughts about the concept.
As a 22 years old girl, i’ve never left Nice (besides some summer holidays in Britany).
After 8 years taking the pictures of the garden, neighboors or friends without travelling anywhere, I wanted to make a change.
However, because of studies, moving and travel were not that easy.
So, I've started to take picturea of the small places in Nice which reminded me of somewhere else : Lisboa facade, London streets or Los Angeles road…
I have found the inspiration by travelers' photos on social networks and my daily bus roads. I selected about twenty photos of Nice for this exhibition which gave me the impression of being somewhere else.
I would like to show you another point of view from certain places of Nice through these photos, to make you forget where you are for a moment.
