DIRECTOR’S BIOGRAPHY

At the age of 18, Alexis left on a 5 years trip that stretches to the Yukon and as far as the Algarve. Armed with his Minolta x-300, he’ll tenaciously take images of the people he meets and the landscapes he sees. Thinking it’s garbage, his girlfriend throws out the bag which contained approximately 140 rolls of film : the entire inventory captured during the journey. Now, Alexis works in digital. And he is no longer with that girlfriend.
