Gustavo Nina – La vie tranquille (2018)
The photographs in this book were made between January 30th of 2016 and September 8th of 2018.
The idea of Gustavo Nina’s project was to document his closest group of friends with a phone camera and present them in a photographic book heavily realiant on its chronology, as if to intrinsically tie it to the passage of time.
The title was borrowed from a lost cap of one of his friends (both appear in the photographs of the book). This way, the author references something lost, just like the time that keeps passing by the group of people present in the book. Plus, the expression “La vie tranquille” fits quite perfectly with the moments depicted.
