À l'instant d'un grand départ, two handmade cupboard boxes and 352 photographs, 4'' x 3.5'' each, 2015.

À l'instant d'un grand départ ("The moment of a big departure") documents all of the books that I own in Paris and displays the select few that I would choose to bring to New York City for my upcoming move. It is composed of two series of 352 black and white and color photographs put into two different handmade cupboard boxes. The title is inspired by Le Rivage des Syrtes (The Opposing Shore) by Julien Gracq.
