What if happiness lies in the little details? The little things, little gestures we've grown so accustomed to that we overlook them. Often struggling through paralyzing thoughts, Laure Sée initiated this series as a therapeutic journey in an attempt to rediscover the present moment. 
This visual exploration aims to capture the immersive power of the daily, the invisible. It’s a remedy. Or perhaps a habit. With a simple quest : putting an end to an underlying and overwhelming dissatisfaction. The focus is on avoiding dwelling on the past or worrying about the future; instead, it encourages opening our eyes to the things happening right here, right now, and paying attention to the emotions that come along. 

In her attempt to reflect on the core of her own living experience, Sée returns to the essence of photography, capturing these moments of grace. By attributing significance to the ordinary – be it things, places, or instants – she enables us to reconnect with emotions that are often overlooked. While each photo bears witness to the artist's intimate experience, they collectively speak to us about light, color, and beauty, offering an alternative and poetic truth. The titles are evocative of the chosen moment and its beauty, and are at times tinged with a hint of irony.

Laure Sée (b. 1986) is a French photographer and a visual artist. She had a master degree in interior architecture and design in Paris, before starting her career in fashion photography. She was working as part of a photographic duo in Berlin until 2018. She pursued her practice since then, working at the intersection of commissioned and autonomous photography.
Sée employs a distinctive approach by reworking on prints and blending various mediums to add depth and disrupt the immediate interpretation of her images. The use and impact of colors play a significant role in her work. Her personal series delve into the exploration of human fragility, as she maintains a particular interest in themes that question intimacy, vulnerability and our emotional intelligence.
Sée lives and works in Paris.
