Series of photographs. An impromptu kiss ... Parisian tradition? And how our gaze transforms it.

One morning in 2007, among the white-collar workers who run to their offices in the towers of the Parisian business district of La Défense, a scene of kissing. The love that comes to light the gray life of city employees.

And this simple picture is modified little by little, in eleven steps, by the look that can manipulate the pixels to the envy today. This series of modified photos is perhaps in the image of the movement of images in our neurons, of the story that is told in us.
