Since my childhood, I have spent several months a year in Petit-Piquey, Lège Cap-Ferret, on the Arcachon Bay in France. The tides of time turned the bay into a tourist destination “a la mode” during the summer while it depicts a different face throughout the rest of the year. This series, which is intended to span across a lifetime, commenced in 2018; showing the "Bassin" as I most often know it: peaceful, timeless, speckled with shades of loneliness and harboring hews of melancholy in its shores.
