This series was realized during the summer of 2019, as part of a workshop in Arles. I had discovered this hotel "Les Cabanettes" on the internet, a few months before leaving, and I decided to dedicate my topic of workshop to it, because something in it attracted me irresistibly ... Equipped with my Sony A7 and my 35mm single lens, I let myself be transported by the story he told me.
FIVE is a fantasy and refreshing dive, in the 60's universe of an old hotel, lost on the outskirts of a road in France.
Built in 1967, the hotel has been in its juice ever since, from carpet to pool.
Only the few lost tourists know its secret.
This one of a kind building, miraculously preserved in its original state, arose in 1967 from the friendship between a couple of nonconformist hotelkeepers and a visionary architect, Armand Pellier.
