Black-and-white photography / analog
2020 — 2021

This is a personal engagement with Marcel Proust’s In the Search for Lost Time, a novel that shaped, consciously or subconsciously, our cultural imagination and notions of desire, longing and memory. This photographic work is an attempt to translate my perception of the novel into a series of images. Driven by my passion for the novel, or in Barthes’ wording, “the pleasure of the text”, I made trips to North France, where the core scenes of the novel are set.

The work was titled The Way to Combray ⧉ and published by edition frölich in 2022 and later became part of the library collection at Museé Marcel Proust in Illiers-Combray ⧉
