It was on my garden terrace, quietly, busy trying as best as I could to capture the light of the transparency of the shadows of snails moving on the leaves of hostas that I thought to myself: «Why travel far away». The «wild» is within reach of your slippers. The project is there, 2 m from my front door, garden side. These gastropods will be my main theme for this exhibition of this small fauna of proximity, as close as possible to my home. No photo traps, no drone, no carbon impact, I’ll just have to deplore the wear and tear of my plastic hooves… I retained twenty images, the result of silent wanderings and research, with my nose in the wind in my little natural space, a true haven of peace, that is my garden. This selection is also a respectful nod to these fragile, discreet beings that are so useful to our daily lives. All the images have been made over the seasons, both on my terrace and on the edge of a window, in the lawn or simply in the vegetable garden.
