Somewhere...

Somewhere...

Somewhere... in the United States... As an emigrant, I am not a tourist, nor a total stranger, nor totally at home... 50 states... 3.79 million square miles to travel all over to discover it all. In other words an impossible task!

I decided to choose a glimpse of it... here or there... to proceed by strokes... by sensations... here or there... by impressions...
Los Angeles will remain for me a huge amusement park ride in the shape of a giant bean... Death Valley: ravens dancing on a dried tree... Las Vegas: a few palm trees lost in front of an immaculate blue sky... Unusual, timeless, irrational, my memories of America are not what we expect, not like others... my images are an elusive vision of a country without limits...
Somewhere is my American testimonial... my testimonial from here, nowhere and elsewhere...

Somewhere... in Cerrillos

Somewhere... in Cortez

Somewhere... in Death Valley

Somewhere... in Livermoore

Somewhere... in Monument Valley

Somewhere... in Stovepippe Wells

Somewhere... in Los Angeles

Somewhere... in Grand Canyon
