Traveling is a constant free flow.
Confronted to the unknown, travelers need to adapt themselves continuously, following the only rules of observation, open-mindedness and respect. And more time and space travelers have for improvisation, more singular and memorable travels are.
Being ready for the unpredictable means embracing the free flow, pushing back our limits and fears, evolving ourselves and getting creative. For creativity naturally arises from adaptation skills and surrounding beauty.
And beauty is to be seen and retransmitted since beauty inspires.
ARTYVELLE (Florence Lepavec) : The Free Flow Face
During my childhood in France, comics, graphic novels and exotic tales were feeding my imagination and dreams.
With a growing fascination for Asia, I finally got in the ancient continent in my twenties.
There, I found everything way more intense and fulfilling than I had ever expected! The People & sceneries, the cultures & traditions, the colours & flavours, the musics & atmospheres, the generosity & spiritual meanings of Life… I was hooked for ever!
So I kept going back, for traveling and/or living. This part of the World became a complementation to the one I was coming from.
And it also, naturally, shaped a true passion for photography.
Combining it with my affection for storytelling, some graphic/web designer skills and an old love for music, I progressively turn towards videomaking, where I felt my creativity could run free.
Today, I use videos and storytelling to retransmit the wide beauty and variety of the World.
I felt that I had to share all of this so maybe some day, somewhere, some (grown-up) kids would be inspired to go by themselves.
My turn to return…
