My name is Alexandra, I am 19 and I am from Belfort, France. I’m a self-taught photographer and mother of a wonderful little boy. I like to wear dress, going to picnic and walking barefeet. I don’t like superficial things and prefer anything in its natural way. I stopped school early because of health problems, but I kept studying the world by myself, reading books and sitting anywhere, observing how humans acts and moves.
I was standing here, against this wall, watching people laugh at each others ; and oneday, I realized that it didn’t match with that world that I was imagining and dreaming about. I gave myself the mission to prove to the world that softness, love, innocence and dreams are still there. An harmonic world between us and Nature, where everyone car about each others and feel free to love. A world that is not always easy to see, but that I try to show with my camera.
Attracted by everything that is soft, fragile, innocent, naive but also mysterious, I can’t say being inspired by anything special, but more by the life in general, and by this strange sensation that I always had, while watching the world from far away without saying anything, waiting patiently my turn, and using my eyes a lot more than my voice.
In photography or in my life in general, and even more surely in motherhood that I’m discovering and into which I totally flourishing, I use instinct as my main tool.
Photography being my job and being already a mother, some persons will say that I’m living too fast : live fast, but not to die young ; live fast, to fast forward the less pleasant moments and not always necessary, and while taking opportunities when they come, without waiting, without hesitation. Be stubborn, believe until the end, give everything you have, live day after day while composing your life and then, take time to live your dreams like a well deserved retirement.
