People of Nantes – 2014 Edition

Coming from Canada, I find French people fascinating—even though I (used to) be one of them.

There is less cultural and ethnic diversity than in Canada, for sure. People are generally shorter and smaller, but not necessarily thinner, contrary to popular belief. The way they dress is different too: no, French are not wearing haute couture from head to toe, but they are less casual than North American. There are no drive-through stores here, you actually have to dress up to go buy your morning newspaper and baguette!

I take many walks in Nantes, with or without Mark, and I always have my camera with me. Is street photography art or voyeurism? I hope it’s not the latest. I find people beautiful and fascinating and I always try to portray them in a good light.

You can see the com­plete set of pic­tures taken in France on Flickr.
