Having my ‘fix’ of doors and windows on any exploration around France – Well, anywhere I go for that matter – has come to my attention whilst flipping through my photos recently. I have asked myself the question,’ what is it that fascinates me and creates the urge to photograph them? Is it the shapes and colours? The rustic charm – the peeling layers of faded paint on old shutters and doors? Or is it the wondering of what secrets lay within? Behind those doors, who were the people of the past who once lived here, who are the people now, what are their stories that I will never hear?
So this then led to the idea that from now on, not only will I take a photo of but I may just knock on that door and have a chat with whoever answers…. could be rather interesting I feel.by
