Nord Pas-de-Calais, baby !

Nord Pas-de-Calais (Northern France) is my home, the region i have been growing in. Since i started taking my first photos 10 years ago, i have always felt that being a foreigner in the places i was visiting was a way to see the world with fresh eyes. With the eyes of a baby. Everything is new and then kind of ‘exotic’ in a way…

Since I have been living in Asia for 5 years now, I start to see my own country with the eyes of a foreigner. Nord Pas-de-Calais start to be ‘exotic’ to me. I feel i am a foreigner both in China and in France. And at the same time I feel i am at home both here and there.
