I was thinking the other day, running into my timeline on facebook: if no one knows I'm happy, am I happy? In times of social media I have the impression people's happiness is fake. Dinners are so fancy, pick nicks are perfectly designed, "selfies" always shows smiley pretty faces. It's easy to think your life is miserable when everyone is doing cool things while you're laying in your sofa watching tennis. We never took that many photos before, in the history, but we never not-live the moment like this. People are so crazy about taking a picture to upload on facebook or instagram all the time, that while their face is glued to the phone screen, life is actually happening. That's what I like most on film photography. It slows me down to what really matters: the photograph, the subject and life.
