Memory from Paris. #AD
. Last September, along with 9 other explorers, I was invited in Paris by @Montblanc
Fragrances to become one of the 10 new global ambassadors of the brand. During those 3 days spent in the French capital, it was mainly about getting to know each other, catch up with old friends or finally get to meet up guys who had been inspiring me for a long time or guys I've been following since the early days of Instagram, like my friend @jarradseng
(who took some of those BTS photos). It took us 6 years to finally meet in person! As part of our new mission as ambassadors, we've all been asked what it means to us to leave our mark in 2019. As a photographer, leaving a mark with my work and images is obviously something that is important to me. Publishing my first book was a real milestone in my career, yet it was one of the most difficult tasks I've ever had to do. Of course I hope to achieve more major milestones like this in the future, by pushing my limits again and again, but to me, leaving my mark in 2019 comes first with a big responsibility. Whether you want it or not, every one leaves a mark nowadays. Doing so in an environmental friendly way, or at least trying the best you can, shouldn't be a choice but a necessity in today's major environmental crisis the world is facing. This is what leaving my mark really means to me in 2019. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be part of this new #MontblancFragrances
family and truly honoured to have been chosen by prestigious brand Montblanc as one of its ten new ambassadors!
