Diploma project, ECAL 2016
in BACHELOR PHOTOGRAPHY
by Elsa Guillet
An economic and touristic hub in Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva between Vevey and Villeneuve, the Vaud Riviera has lived on its image of paradise since the late 19th century, inspired by the French Riviera, where life seems as pleasant as the landscapes are exotic.
As I grew up in this area, I combined a documentary approach with the mental images of my memories to depict a lifestyle where symbols of happiness seem frozen in time.
