I can spend hours taking her pictures without her noticing. My grandmother, a woman of 92 years old who reads the newspaper every day and learns about the world situation, is probably not interested in technology and globalization. However, I find pleasure knowing that her picture will go around the world in seconds and will be seen in different parts of the world.

She, in her apartment in the city center, with her boring routine that consists in sweeping the floor or washing dishes, can’t even imagine that her relaxing moments, make a great contribution to my little artistic career. She can’t even imagine that she’s one of my favorite models. She can’t even imagine that someone finds interesting her boring routine.
